It’s hard to believe that another year of our annual elections has already come and gone but in what was an incredibly successful week, your student leaders for the 2021-22 academic year have been finalised. Before that though, we’d just like to take this opportunity to recognise all of our candidates once again who stood in our annual elections. Putting yourself up before your peers is a courageous thing to do, and for that, and their ideas, each and every one of the candidates deserve our admiration. Now to the results.
First up, the much-anticipated sabbatical elections and we start first with the Presidential election in which we had three candidates: Honor Fletcher, Tamsin Grainger, and Re-Open Nominations, otherwise known as RON.
After one of the clostest counts we've seen for several years, Honor Fletcher was duly elected as your new President for 2021-22. Congratulations to Honor.
From here we then move to the Vice President Education and Welfare election. There were three candidates in this election: Bea Barefield, Natasha Neal, and RON.
Natasha Neal was duly elected as your new Vice President Education and Welfare for 2021-22. Congratulations to Natasha.
From here we then move to the last of the three sabbatical officer positions, Vice President Student Involvement. There were five candidates in this election: Alisha Chester, Elysia Hix, Mackenzie Hoey, Tom Featherstone, and RON.
