FAYETTE, Iowa (March 2, 2016) – A junior from Rock Falls, Ill., has been elected the 2016-2017 Upper Iowa University Student Government Association (SGA) president. Paige Davis, anaccounting/business management double major, was elected alongside four additional officers on the Fayette campus Thursday, Feb. 25.
Davis is a member of the UIU School of Business Student Advisory Board and Peacock cross country and track teams. The new SGA president is also actively involved with Phi Beta Lambda (PBL), the oldest and largest student business organization devoted to students who are preparing for careers in business-related fields. In addition, she is a member of the Gamma Delta Phi sorority, which is built on the three pillars of service, leadership and loyalty.
Davis said she is looking forward to the opportunity to voice the student body’s interests, concerns, and needs on the Upper Iowa campus.
“I believe that more students should become involved with SGA, not only to better themselves as individuals but to also further enhance Upper Iowa University to the benefit of everyone on campus,” she explained. “I hear students, including myself, talk about what they expect from our University or what they wish our University had. I would like to see more student involvement in any proposed improvements they are talking about. The first step toward change is becoming more involved in SGA.”
In addition to Davis, the 2016-2017 Upper Iowa SGA officers are as follows:
SGA agendas are emailed to UIU students before every scheduled meeting. Unless otherwise notified, all meetings are held at 12:15 p.m. every other Monday in the Student Center Ballroom. For additional information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
