     University of West Alabama students recently selected several of their peers to serve as Student Government Association leaders for the 2014-2015 school year.

    D’Anthony Jackson of Linden, Ala., was elected president after serving previous years as senator for the sophomore class and business major. The integrated marketing communications major is the son of Betty Hayes.

    “I am excited and humbled with the SGA officer results. I’m happy to have the opportunity to continue to work alongside intelligent and hardworking students,” Jackson said.

    “My ultimate goal is to get more students involved with SGA this upcoming year so UWA students can move forward to a brighter future,” Jackson said. “Most students don’t attend SGA meetings because they are confused with SGA’s purpose.”

    I want to encourage students to speak up. SGA stands as a liaison between the student body and administration—meaning issues can be solved through SGA,” he explained.

    Jerria Prince will serve as vice president. She has also served as business senator and as STARS coordinator. The junior accounting major is the daughter of Tameka Prince.

    Hannah McDaniel of Carrollton was elected business manager. The junior majoring in accounting is the daughter of Chuck McDaniel and Kris McBryde. McDaniel previously served as attorney general.

    Jasmine Knox of Moundville will serve as secretary. She previously served as senator for both the freshman and sophomore classes. A sophomore sociology major, she is the daughter of Douglas and Denise Knox.
