Five seats on Student Government Association’s Student Senate remain empty. Open seats include nursing, graduate, graduate/law-at-large, sophomore-at-large, and freshman-at-large.
The resignations of Sens. Neil Cooley (sophomore-at-large) and Jacilyn Kennedy (freshman-at-large) were announced during the Dec. 7 Student Senate meeting.
Cooley resigned because he was no longer able to allot the time and dedication needed for the position, according to his letter of resignation. Letters were read aloud by Sen. Sarah Cook (president pro-tempore/Greek) during Tuesday’s meeting.
“My personal skills as a senator are no longer effective to the environment,” Cooley said in his letter.
Kennedy resigned due to an increased number of credit hours next term. She also was elected to serve as an executive member of Alpha Chi Omega sorority, Kennedy said in her letter.
Another senator’s resignation still is pending, Cook said during Tuesday’s meeting.
