FUSG swears in new treasurer, Austrian leadership


Franciscan University Student Government opened the spring semester Wednesday, confirming the appointments of its new treasurer and its Austrian delegates. 

Junior Athanasius Sirilla was confirmed by the five senators in attendance to replace Kelsey Scott-Avery as treasurer. Sirilla had previously served on Student Government as a senator for two semesters and was the Austrian Ambassador last semester.  

The senators also confirmed Carly Newman as Austrian Ambassador and Joshua Schutte as Austrian Consul for the spring semester. All three confirmations were unanimous. 

Student Government also suspended its bylaws to allow for a speedier election to fill vacancies in the Senate. Candidates must declare their interest to Chief Justice Billy Chester by Friday. 

In other business: 

  • Spring Bill #4 reimbursed Margaret Gorman $35 for gas purchases related to running Student Government airport shuttles on Jan 12.  
  • Spring Bill #5 reimbursed Garrett Wolf $48.94, also for gas purchases related to running Student Government airport shuttles on Jan 12. 
  • Spring Bill #6 reallocated $1,200 to the Franciscan University Musical Theatre Troupe for tracks and set. The money had previously been allocated for buying the rights to the musical “Newsies.” 
  • Several members were absent from the meeting due to required thesis meetings also scheduled for that time.

Student Government will next meet on Jan. 29 at 11 a.m. in the St. Leo Room.
