(March 8, 2018) – In the Student Government Association (SGA) elections held this week, The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) student body selected a new President and Treasurer. Vice President and Secretary will be decided in a run-off election later this month.
Brittany Garcia, a senior public health, pre-med major from Pharr, Texas, was elected SGA president for the 2018-2019 academic year. She’s currently SGA vice president and previously served as co-director of calendar and events, coordinating the annual Golf Cart Parade and University Life Awards.
Amber Shannon Barbosa, a sophomore computer science major and currently an active member in SGA, was elected treasurer. In this position, Barbosa will be responsible for proposing an annual budget for the organization and for facilitating the LeaderFund student organization funding process.
Students at UTSA will make their voices heard again on March 20 and 21 by voting in a run-off election to decide who will become the next SGA Vice President and Secretary. Three UTSA students originally ran for the offices. Since no candidate received the majority of 50 percent plus one, the top two candidates in each office will go head to head in a run-off to declare the winners.
Arianna Pulido and Mariah Crippen are the vice presidential candidates. Aileen Montana and Lorelle Jackson are vying to become secretary. The UTSA SGA Vice President supports the President in serving the UTSA student body, and the Secretary is responsible for taking minutes for SGA activities and for member accountability processes.
The UTSA SGA run-off election will run from midnight on March 20 to 11:59pm on March 21. All UTSA students can vote on RowdyLink. The run-off results will be announced Thursday, March 22 at 3 p.m. in front of the SGA office in the H-E-B Student Union (HSU 1.214).
