Voting for SGA will take place Tuesday and Wednesday at multiple locations on campus.
DeKALB — Honor Morgan, a young political science student, is running for executive treasurer in the upcoming Student Government Association election. Morgan is majoring in journalism and biology.
Morgan is currently involved with the Student Government Association and the Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority.
She currently holds a position with the Student Government Association as Assistant Treasurer where she assists the current Treasurer with planning, scheduling, and fundraising. She works particularly closely with funding applications.
In Sigma Sigma Sigma, she previously held the Chair of Philanthropy, Chair of Community Service, Chair of Founders Day, and Chair of Treasury.
Morgan believes her involvement with Greek Life in particular has helped her learn many valuable skills needed to be the right candidate for this position.
“After all my experiences in leadership positions in Greek Life, I wanted to get more involved on campus and benefit more people, that’s when I started getting interested in student government. “Morgan said.
Morgan said that as assistant treasurer, she has been able to see how the SGA works and the funding it provides to ensure events benefit students.
“I want to serve as Treasurer of the Student Government Association to provide as many fundraising resources as possible to all student organizations,” Morgan said. “NIU offers so many options for funding student organizations and the more events we can fund, the better off our campus will be.”
Morgan believes that his current involvement in the Student Government Association has benefited him and will continue to benefit him in many ways.
“Being able to work on the faculty side as well as so closely with Greek life gave me the opportunity to see both sides,” Morgan said. “I have a good understanding of how both parties work and a passion to do more for both.”
Morgan’s main goals for the Student Government Association are to continue the policy of transparency and to ensure that the student body is aware of what student funding is and where it goes.
Because Morgan is the current assistant treasurer, she feels she has the necessary experience for the role of treasurer.
“I not only learned how the Student Government Association operates with the bylaws and constitution, but I also met all of the faculty and staff who work with the organization and developed strong relationships with them. , which I think gives me a strong advantage if I come to the position with no experience and with such staff relationships,” Morgan said.
Voting for the Student Government Association will take place from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday in Barsema Hall, DuSable Hall, Founders Memorial Library, Holmes Student Center, and New Hall Community Center. Additionally, voting via Husky Link will be available for 24 hours.
