Greer And Gardner To Head CMU Student Government

Students elect leadership for 2014-15

Students at Central Methodist University have elected the team of Briana Greer and Austin Gardner as their Student Government Association president and vice president for 2014-15.

Elections were held April 24-25 on the CMU campus. Greer and Gardner will spend the coming weeks and months assembling their cabinet for the upcoming academic year, along with developing strategies to increase student involvement as their highest priority.

 “We want to focus on the different organizations and programs that we do have to bring them more to the forefront,” Greer said. She is a junior physical education and health major from Barrington, Ill., with a minor in sports management. 

 “We would love to have a higher involvement rate with students and the local clubs at CMU,” Gardner added. He is a junior from Stockton majoring in biology education, with a minor in physical education.

Campus involvement is something the pair knows all about. Greer is a member of the Eagle track and field team, is active in Physical Educators Club, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the campus NAIA Champions of Character group, Zeta Psi Lambda (Greek life), and has been involved in SGA.

 Gardner has been involved in SGA for the past three years. He’s a member of Tau Kappa Epsilon (Greek life), and Physical Educators Club. Next year he and several other biology students will be working with Prof. Dana Morris on Bio Blitz, an interactive science project at property CMU owns in rural Fayette. Both Gardner and Greer have helped out with new student orientation programs for incoming CMU students, too.

 “By putting our student groups and organizations in the forefront, we hope to increase student morale and pride in each other's accomplishments,” Greer noted. “We believe that Central Methodist is so much more than academics and sports and that there are so many different groups on campus that fellow students don't know about. We hope to increase the number of participants in these different organizations.”
