After today’s Senate meeting, SGA Vice President Cory Maran announced that he will be graduating early this December. As a result, there is a vacancy for the position next semester. The deadline for letters of intent is Nov. 26 by 5 p.m. in the SGA office on the fourth floor of Stern. After SGA reviews the letters, interviews will then occur.
SGA originally appointed Maran as vice president when Alex Henderson resigned back in September. When Maran originally sought office, he was unaware of his eligibility regarding the matter of graduating early in December and had not yet made the decision to do so.
When Maran addressed Senate, he said he carefully made the decision with his family. He addressed the concern some might have regarding whether his decision will affect SGA’s unity. Maran said, “Whomever is our next Vice President, I will do everything to ensure that it is a smooth, seamless transition and Senate’s support of the appointment process and the incoming VP is appreciated.”
While Maran leaves his position earlier than expected, he said he’s learned a great deal from the experience. “Holding this position has taught me a lot about leadership and even more about how to work with a diverse group of people,” Maran said. “It has been an utmost pleasure serving you all and our school this semester, and I have a sincere faith that this will not impact the stability of our organization or disrupt all the good work that SGA continues to accomplish.”
