WSUSA election results were announced during the Weber’s Got Talent competition on March 18.
Gregory Woodfield is the new WSUSA president for 2016-17.
OGDEN, Utah—WSUSA elections have closed, and the results are in.
In a night brimming with magic, music and comedy, nerves flooded the Shepherd Union Ballrooms on March 18.
Weber’s Got Talent was the venue to announce the election results. Candidates anxiously waited through the competition to hear their names called.
Noor Mouhammad won the race for activities vice president, and she couldn’t contain her excitement.
“It’s my last year, and so I’m like so stoked to just leave my legacy before I graduate. I think that’s the best part,” Mouhammad said.
The most contentious part of this year’s campaign was the race for service vice president. All three candidates were disqualified for failing to submit their spending forms before the deadline. However, they were allowed to run as write-in candidates.
Candidate Morgan Gardiner said by the time the results were announced, she just wanted someone good to win. That someone ended up being her.
“I fought, and it paid off. I’m kind of speechless. I’m kinda freaking out,” Gardiner said.
The race for WSUSA president wasn’t nearly as stressful.
After two competitors dropped out of the running, Gregory Woodfield was the only candidate left, but Woodfield didn’t let that slow him down.
“I didn’t choose to just sit back and know that I had the position cause anybody could have filled out the packet,” Woodfield said. “So for me, like I worked my tail off Monday through Thursday during the actual campaign.”
It was a night full of winners at Weber State.
