Student Government elects new justice, senators in semester’s first meeting


As the spring 2015 semester begins to pick up momentum, Student Government inducted three new members into office during its first weekly meeting Wednesday.

Sophomore Jack Scanlon was elected as a justice as Student Government passed spring 2015 Bill #15. He gained the confidence of several existing members of the senate through his past experience in high school combined with his willingness to work hard and honestly.

In addition to Scanlon, two senators, Sarah Rose Sperduto and Chris Beatty, were voted into office.

Sperduto, who had already spent four semesters with Student Government before studying in Austria during the fall 2014 semester, was accepted readily because of her ability to take her social life on campus and transfer it into the work of student government.

Beatty has held similar positions in the past and also has assisted with prior Student Government presidential campaigns. His appreciation for the work that Student Government accomplishes and his strong desire to help landed him a seat in the senate.

After the swearing-in ceremony of these three new members, David Schmiesing, adviser to Student Government, commented on the responsibility of those who participate in Student Government.

“Student Government is different from every other club on campus,” Schmiesing said. “It fills a unique role for the university.”
