Dylan Russell and Michael Page have been selected to serve as president and vice president for the 2013-14 Student Government Association.

The duo took 1,578 of 1,965 student votes. Voting closed Tuesday at 5 p.m.

“We ran an intense campaign,” Russell said. “We had a large staff, and I think our staff was the root of why we won.”

Russell said it was “overwhelming” to see so much support from the students.

The next step is to start an “intense recruiting campaign” to get more students involved with SGA, Russell said. 

Despite defeat in the election, Nathan Bailey and Nick Smith both expressed a hope that they will still be involved with SGA next year.

“I’m just looking forward to finishing out the year strong as a senator and looking forward to next year as well,” Bailey said.

Our Goal

We hope you appreciate this article! Before you move on, our student staff wanted to ask if you would consider supporting The Appalachian's award-winning journalism. We are celebrating our 90th anniversary of The Appalachian in 2024!

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. Our supporters help to keep us editorially independent, user-friendly, and accessible to everyone.

If you can, please consider supporting us with a financial gift from $10. We appreciate your consideration and support of student journalism at Appalachian State University. If you prefer to make a tax-deductible donation, or if you would prefer to make a recurring monthly gift, please give to The Appalachian Student News Fund through the university here: https://securelb.imodules.com/s/1727/cg20/form.aspx?sid=1727&gid=2&pgid=392&cid=1011&dids=418.15&bledit=1&sort=1.
