HC: What inspired you to run for SGA President?
David: I ran for SGA President because I sat in the Senate for two years. My experience in SGA has been a growing one, while I learned how to speak up with a voice that can inspire students to love their school. As for President I feel the need for a new type of leadership. I am aware that my leadership may be different than past leaders, but my goal as President is to get the job done. I love my school and I see VSU as the glass half full not half empty. VSU is a great school, but I am here to elevate the potential of VSU’s future. I will bring innovation that will increase pride, tradition, and unity, so that we can operate to increase retention and most importantly graduate college.
