The election results, announced just a few minutes after midnight on April 17, favored Student Government president and vice-presidential candidates Kelsie Huth and Chris McCarthy with 1,013 votes over Andrew Argue and Elbin Keeppanasseril’s 852.

‘Were so pumped over the victory,’ said Huth, ‘that words really couldn’t do it justice. We’re ecstatic!’

Huth is no stranger to SG positions, as she served as SG vice president under senior Andrew Learned. She is also member of Alpha Chi Omega.
She has also been an Honor’s Council representative and the public relations committee representative.

Her running mate, vice president Chris McCarthy, has been actively involved in Student Government since holding a position on sophomore congress.

Both Huth and McCarthy are fully prepared and eager to serve their loyal UT constituents and look forward to strengthening the bond between student government and the student body itself.

‘We want to hear what you have to say,’ said beaming president Huth. ‘Student government is here for you.’

Their espoused goal for the upcoming year is first and foremost to kindle UT school spirit and increase the ease with which concerned students can access the government which represents them, making it easier to directly facilitate vital changes in the way UT is being run.

The triumphant pair were also extremely sincere in their acknowledgement of the good fight put up by opponents Argue and Keeppanasseril.

‘We take our hats off to the opposition,’ said McCarthy. ‘They’re both great guys- qualified, intelligent, and dedicated- and together we put on the biggest election ever to hit UT.’

Retiring SG president Andrew Learned expressed his best wishes for the Huth and McCarthy administration, imparting a final lesson of experience and deeply-felt conviction to the newly elected candidates.

‘Always remember to defend student rights with all your available passion,’ Learned said.’Realize that you work for them and not the administration.’

The first ever SG Senators were also in the voting. Alex Caraballo, Art Linares, Ryan Linares, Mike Harrell Kate Magruder and Hannah Pothier won the election while Morgan Tanafon, Rockell Alhale and Dan Mixa were defeated.
