Claire King ~ Vice President of Internal Affairs and President-Elect
While navigating through the challenges of leading during a pandemic, the Student Government Association Senate of 2021-2022 has succeeded in serving our community in a multitude of ways. This group represents all voices on campus, and has demonstrated their continuous commitment to making decisions that uplift the student body.
So far, the Senate has upheld inclusivity and respect by approving Lynchburg’s first NAACP Chapter, assisting in the name change process of the Gender and Sexuality Alliance, and approving the Inclusive Excellence and Anti-bullying Amendments to the Student Government Association Constitution.
The Senate has also emphasized its care for our environment and community by approving the Lynchburg Environmental Sustainability Society and conducting an incredibly successful Hurricane Relief Drive to help those who were negatively impacted by hurricane Ida.
Moreover, the Senate has supported and attended events by speaker Brenda Tracey to step up against sexual assault and physical violence and senators signed the Set The Expectation Community Pledge to protect our friends, organization, and greater community from sexual assault.
The Senate has also learned from important Lynchburg leaders who train and teach our group about important topics such as servant leadership and upholding inclusive excellence. Presently, our group is developing and outlining legislative proposals to continue their work making our community a better place for all.
I have full faith that the Senate will continue its success throughout the Semester. Each member brings something special to the table, and I look forward to the rest that they will accomplish.
Vice President of Internal Affairs,
