Wimberly to be sworn in, speaker to be elected

Hannah Wimberly will officially be the first female SBP in over a decade when sworn in at Student Senate’s Wednesday meeting.

Student Body President-Elect Hannah Wimberly will be sworn into office during Wednesday’s Student Senate meeting, and a new Student Senate speaker, pro tempore and rules and regulations chair will be elected.
Candidates for the speaker, pro tempore and rules and regulation chair elections, will be nominated by one of the senators, and a period of presentation, debate and then election will follow.
Joseph Hood, Student Senate finance chair and political science junior, and Nick Page, Student Senate academic affairs chair and aerospace engineering junior, are in the running for the speaker position, according to Aaron Mitchell, current Student Senate speaker.
“It’s almost certain that no one else will run,” Mitchell said. “Someone else might get nominated as a joke, or somebody might nominate someone they might want to see as speaker who doesn’t want to do it, and they’ll be declined. But those are the only two that will really actually run, present and go through the whole thing.”
Beyond elections, Mitchell said there will likely be no bills passed for the remainder of the semester.
“More likely than not, there will not be any bills passed this semester, it will just be elections of Senate officers and Student Senate leadership, consideration of executive cabinet appointees and judicial court appointees and just really setting up student government for next year,” Mitchell said.
Student Senate will be in session at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the governance room in Koldus. A livestream will also be available on the Student Senate’s YouTube channel.
