As the spring semester comes to an end all 12 men’s and women’s social clubs on campus elect their new club officers for the upcoming school year. A social clubs purpose is to give students the opportunity to feel a sense of brotherhood or sisterhood in a Christ-centered environment.
Gamma Sigma Phi President, senior biology major from Keller, was elected at the beginning of March. He ran against five other members Chase Martin, Curtis Christian, Zack Morgan, and Ryan Carroll.
“I was surprised. We have five great guys running for office and I know that it was a really close race. I feel especially honored and humbled to have been elected out of such a qualified group of young men who would represent the men of Gamma Sigma Phi at such a high level,” Smith said.
Smith hopes to be a good steward of GSP to the ACU and local community. He knows that as President of GSP his actions carry a little more weight than they used to.
“Not only am I acting on behalf of myself, but for the next year all of my words and actions directly reflect my social club, and that is a responsibility that I take seriously. Club certainly is not life, but it is something that has improved my college experience and I hope that it can continue to do the same for future students,” Smith said.
As social clubs are pressed upon the upcoming sophomore class, Smith is excited for the new pledge class ahead, and cannot wait to serve the ACU and local community with a group of Christ-centered brothers.
Alpha Kai Omega President, Bethany Morgan Ad/PR major from Nocona, was elected in December of last year. She ran against Kristen McBride.
“I was very excited. I have been dreaming of being President of such an amazing club since I pledged. I was also honored. I want to serve the women of AKO in the best way I can, and was happy with the opportunity to do so,” Morgan said.
Morgan strives to reflect the light of AKO in the best way possible by having a close relationship with God, her sisters and others around her. She speaks on the matter of what being President of AKO does to her status around campus.
“I feel like my actions reflect what people think about our club; not only myself, but all of the members as well. When you see someone in a club shirt, your opinion is formed by the way they act,” Morgan said.
