B-U Graduate to lead Glenville State University Student Government Association

GLENVILLE, WV – Breanna Morgan and Macy Rush were elected as president and vice president, respectively, of the Glenville State University Student Government Association (SGA) for the 2022-2023 academic year. The results were announced following elections that took place at the end of the spring 2022 semester.

Morgan is studying Behavioral Science and Health Promotion and hails from Helvetia, West Virginia. She previously served as an SGA Senator and a member of the Academic Policy Committee. She plays on the GSU Women’s Golf team, is a representative on the Student Athletic Advisory Committee, and a member of the campus sorority, Chi Zeta Pi. She graduated from Buckhannon-Upshur High School in 2020 and is the daughter of Shana and Dale Morgan.

“Macy and I are so honored to have been elected as the 2022-2023 President and Vice President,” Morgan said. “We are looking forward to working not only with our representatives and senators, but with the student body of Glenville State University while implementing our new constitution. We are excited that every part of our university has a voice, and we hope to see and hear everyone throughout the academic year.”

Rush is pursuing a degree in Elementary Education (K-6) and General Mathematics-Algebra I (5-9) and hails from Eden, North Carolina. She was previously an SGA Senator and has been an active member of Chi Zeta Pi where she has served as the parliamentarian, historian, treasurer, and president. She is the daughter of Joey Rush.

The duo began their work as SGA leaders over the summer, attending the annual West Virginia Student Leadership Conference in late May. There they joined over 50 other student leaders from institutions across the Mountain State to discuss a variety of issues of concern to college students. The Conference also served as a training event for student government representatives, many of whom were newly elected to their roles.

“I really enjoyed the conference (aside from a small run-in between my car and a deer on the way there). One of the main topics that all of the student leaders see as place to focus our energies is reducing the stigma around mental health and providing mental health services to all of our campuses. We’ve made progress with things like the Green Bandana Initiative on our campus, but there is always room for increased support,” Rush said.

Other SGA officer positions include secretary, treasurer, parliamentarian, and public relations officer. The Student Government Association meets weekly during the regular semester. Meetings take place Thursdays at 12:30 p.m. in the Mollohan Campus Community Center Room 315.

For more information about the GSU Student Government Association or how to get involved, contact SGA@glenville.edu or (304) 462-6419.
