Rebecca Dial, junior political science and financial management major from South Carolina
Rebecca Dial has ideas that would benefit SA Congress and the student body, but a lot of people have ideas. But Dial also has the wherewithal to make her ideas a reality. She is a motivated leader and her experience influences her vision of where she should take SA and the student body.
Dial realizes that SA doesn’t hold the monopoly on good ideas – only the platform. She realizes students have a voice and something to say. And she realizes the best thing she can do as a leader is hand them the microphone.
Her goals for the next year revolve around looking toward the future of SA and making it easier for students with ideas to be heard. Her “Greatest Idea Challenge” will help student bring their ideas to people with money and influence. Her Res Life Council helps strengthen the campus community.
Students Looking Ahead would provide a long-term vision to SA. This would help provide a plan 5-10 years into the future and ultimately strengthen SA, improve its image and help it accomplish something more than the usual events.
She has filled her plate when it comes to changes to SA, but even if only a fraction of them are put into practice the will be an improvement.
Though we were disappointed in the lack of student interest for the position of SA President, we did not resign to endorsing Rebecca Dial for SA President. We believe that along with being the only candidate for the job she is the best person for the job.
