What’s your year and major?

I am currently a Junior, to be Senior in Fall 2016. My major is Biology with a concentration in Health Science and a minor in Economics on the Pre-Med Track.

Why do you think you are the best candidate for the position?

Serving the SGA has been my passion since I first arrived at Emmanuel College. The relationships that I have developed with other SGA members, club executive board members, and administrators have been some of the most rewarding of my life. I have always strived to go above and beyond what my position called for to make things the best they can be for all students. I know how to make the tough decisions and want to work hard to support each student and their ambitions. Throughout the last year I have put in the effort to make things better for students and worked to enable student groups to succeed. Some of my initiatives to improve things for student groups include the creation of SGA Club Storage Room, creation of the Event Supply Room to reduce waste and increase efficient use of SGA funds, and the rewriting of the Treasurer’s Handbook. In each of these cases I saw an issue and made it by personal mission to solve them. With the student bodies help the possibilities for change and improvement are endless.

Madison Soares

Madison Soares ’18

What’s your year and major?

I am a rising Junior majoring in English Communication and Media Studies and minoring in Spanish.

Why do you think you are the best candidate for the position?

I believe that I am the best candidate for the Executive Director of Club Relations position because I am dedicated to ensuring that Emmanuel’s clubs’ needs are met and that healthy communication is maintained between them and the Student Government Association. As the current Executive Director of Club Relations, I have had hands-on experience with serving our college’s clubs, specifically in my work coordinating Training Days, EC Incomings, and various Council of Presidents Meetings. I feel that the breadth of my service can best be exemplified through my work on Council of Presidents Meetings, which I have reworked and reconfigured to ensure that information is being transmitted to clubs in an effective and timely manner. Serving our community’s clubs and being their advocate is a position that I handle with the utmost integrity and respect, and it is a relation that I am constantly striving to advance.

Executive Resident Representative:

Oscar Reid

Oscar Reid ’18

What’s your year and major?

I am a member of the Class of 2018 here at Emmanuel. I am pleased to say that I am an International Studies major with a concentration in Diplomacy and Security, and a minor in Political Science.

Why do you think you are the best candidate for the position?

In my experience through the past two years here at Emmanuel I have gotten to know many of the students and staff here at Emmanuel. In working as an Office Assistant to Mike Conte in St. Joe’s residence hall, as well as serving the school as a member of the Colleges of the Fenway Student Advisory Board, I have gained the right experience and skill set to represent the students here on campus well.

Over the course of the past year, the current Student Government has dealt with a myriad of issues ranging  from the Constitution to the new Treasurer’s Handbook, and I have kept myself informed about these topics. When I felt it necessary, I made sure to attend important SGA meetings and offer my own comments about these issues.

I have had executive experience sitting on the Political Forum executive board as Secretary, elected in the first semester of my freshman year, and real world experience with government working for the Office of the New Hampshire Governor.

Executive Commuter Representative:

Michael Hogarty

Michael Hogarty ’19

What’s your year and major?

Class of 2019. Management.

Why do you think you are the best candidate for the position?

I have lived in Boston my entire life and plan to commute for my entire four years here at Emmanuel. I understand that spending time on campus for many commuters can be difficult, but it is my hope that as representative I can create opportunities for commuter students to feel more involved on campus. I will also be making myself available to commuters in order for me to make certain that they are getting the most out of their Emmanuel College experience. Moreover, I will be working with them to solve any problems that they may have with commuting to our school. It would be an honor to represent the commuters of our college, and I hope to improve our community as much as I can in the years to come.
