The Washburn Student Government Association recently held freshman senate elections, of which there were five open seats. Ten candidates submitted proper documents in time to officially run for the senate and the winning five of these candidates were Richard Nelson Bihler, Kelsee Clear, Jeremy Ridge, Alex Lasher and Edgar Villa.

“I think it’s a great opportunity for me to serve Washburn and the Student Body, and I’m excited that I get to be a part of that awesome organization,” said Alex Lasher, who had been running his campaign since his first week on campus, talking to students and faculty alike as well as acquainting himself with current WSGA members.

“When I read on the WSGA Facebook page that I had been elected, I was ecstatic,” said Kelsee Clear who has often been seen on campus talking to students throughout her campaign.

The new WSGA members will meet together for the first time with the rest of the student government on Wednesday, September 9th for the weekly WSGA meeting.
