The votes are in! Transylvania’s Student Government Association has a new executive council. TU students cast their ballots on their way to and from class in the campus center breezeway on April 2nd. The results were announced by @TU_SGA on Instagram the following day. Congratulations to the following 2024-25 Student Government executive council:

President: Sean Gannon ‘26

Vice President: Abby Muncy ‘25

Chief of Staff: Quincy Elliott ‘27

Chief of Finance: Nora Reader ‘27

Nora Reader, an Accounting major, joined SGA at the beginning of the year, looking to get involved on campus and meet new people. Reader’s most recent project was in partnership with former SGA Chief of Finance, Olivia Greinke ‘24, to promote Financial Literacy. She said, “I’m excited to be on the flip side of things, to see bigger-picture moments behind the scenes, and meet with different people across campus.” 

Quincy Elliott mentioned his excitement about recruiting new members, referring to SGA as an “amazing opportunity.” Elliott has made efforts to extend cafeteria hours on weekends and host open forums for students to voice culinary concerns. Elliott remarked, “I think our executive committee this year is going to be absolutely awesome. We already have a few things in store for the new members and the rest of SGA.”

Abby Muncy, former chair of the Student Affairs Committee, has spearheaded numerous projects including co-founding Transylvania’s Advocates for Accessibility. Muncy declared her enthusiasm about the new role, saying “Over the past three years, I have been given the opportunity to watch SGA grow as an organization. I cannot wait to work with the new EC to further grow this flourishing group and for all of the changes that will be made on campus. With an emphasis on advocacy and collaboration, we plan to work hand in hand with other organizations on campus to accomplish these changes.”

Sean Gannon, who previously served as Vice President, plans to apply his past experience in the new position:

“One of the main roles of the president is that you meet with university President, Brien Lewis, as well as other administrators monthly. There is so much to do with financial allocations and distributions that are equitable and fair for students: lowering housing costs, parking passes, or properly funding certain administrations that desperately need it, for example.”

Gannon ended with optimism, stating, “The Student Government is getting more and more experienced and more and more comfortable in its own skin. I think next year is going to be one of the best years that we’ve ever had on campus.”
