SWOSU Students Give 84% Nod on SWOSUpalooza


New senators and 84% approval to continue SWOSUpalooza resulted from the recent Student Government Association elections at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.

Alli Lee of the SGA said the officers wanted to get student opinions on SWOSUpalooza, and students overwhelmingly said they wanted the event continued in 2010. The SGA organizes the popular band event each spring on the SWOSU campus. Last year's event featured the Randy Rogers Band.

Lee said students can email their band of choice by emailing sga@swosu.edu.

Also, students were elected as senators for the 2009-10 school year. The first meeting is set for September 10.

New senators include: Brianna Dudley, Eva Zitterkob, Abigail Ntreh, Lakesha Seals, Thomson George, Alex Mustain, Maria Ortega, Katherine Helms, Paul Belase, Tyler Rickey, Jessica Campbell, Justin Edwards, Taylor Hancock, Mary Lawless, Emalee Munn, Rebecca Partl, Rachelle Dougherty, Alejandra DeSantiago, London McCarthy, Katrina Detherow, Brandon Burr, Kristofer Reed, Mackenzie Vines, Lauren Wilson, Daryl Onwuchuruba, Erica Haywood, Nathan Caldwell Jr., Kaeli Jo Carothers, Daniel Njogo and Chelsey Dodd.

Lee said there are also positions available to be an associate judge and a few more spots for senators. Any SWOSU student who would like to serve should contact the SGA or show up at the September 10 meeting. Senators and justices must have at least a 2.5 grade point average and be a full-time student.
