SGA President Jacquerius Howard expressed his gratitude for being inaugurated by stating, “I have always served the student body to the best of my ability, but it’s different when you have that officially inaugurated title to it. I am officially the 64th Student Government Association President and it’s just a different feeling.”

Howard strives to continue his platform for the remainder of the semester and academic school year. “The main platform that I ran on was amplifying the voices of the student body. I didn’t go out and promise that I’d have the best Homecoming, Step Show, or BraveFest, but I did promise the students that by the time that I’ve served my complete term, their voices will be amplified and they will be heard,” said Howard.
