Christian Adams was confirmed by the Student Government Association Senate on Tuesday night after being graded “insufficient” in two categories by the rules committee.

Adams, junior advertising major, was confirmed to the cabinet position of director of marketing with unanimous consent and one abstention.

“It’s definitely exciting because it wasn’t promised after the rules thing,” Adams said. “I feel like I presented myself better and I feel like that was noticed.”

Adams had a powerpoint presentation he gave to the Senate during his opening statement before taking questions.

Adams also said he plans to be better prepared for everything he walks into by meeting with his fellow cabinet members.

All other confirmations were confirmed by unanimous consent. The other confirmations were:

  • Jared Mark, director of student affairs  
  • Gaby Romero, director of social sustainability
  • Ben Killion, director of engagement
  • Savannah Fonvielle, chief administrative officer
  • Bailey Chavis, director of service

When Adams was coming back into the room, DeJon Milbourne, SGA president, shouted for people not to clap right away which generated laughter among the Senate.

We receive funding from the university, which helps us to compensate our students for the work they do for The Appalachian. However, the bulk of our operational expenses — from printing and website hosting to training and entering our work into competitions — is dependent upon advertising revenue and donations. We cannot exist without the financial and educational support of our fellow departments on campus, our local and regional businesses, and donations of money and time from alumni, parents, subscribers and friends.

Our journalism is produced to serve the public interest, both on campus and within the community. From anywhere in the world, readers can access our paywall-free journalism, through our website, through our email newsletter, and through our social media channels.
