SGA vice president, treasurer resign; positions filled by appointed members
Student Government Association Vice President Bryant English and Treasurer Daniel Wiley have both resigned from their positions citing personal reasons.
Both English, a Jackson junior, and Wiley, a Port Huron junior, submitted letters of resignation to SGA President Vincent Cavataio on Friday.
In accordance with the SGA constitution, President Cavataio has appointed new SGA members to replace the two.
The newly-appointed vice president, Brighton junior Colleen McNeely, ran opposed to English in the April election. McNeely has been a member of the SGA for three years and has held a Senate position and chaired committees in the past.
Cavataio said he was confident McNeely was the right choice for him as vice president and the decision came very quickly.
“Colleen is more than capable of fulfilling the role and we had similar goals during the election,” Cavataio said. “I’m more than excited to work with her. She is a very motivated and intelligent individual.”
McNeely said she was excited to be appointed as vice president, and said her ambition to be in the position is still there from the April election.
“I’ve always wanted to take on additional leadership roles in SGA so this is a great opportunity for me,” McNeely said. “It was definitely exciting that Vince chose me and it’s certainly an honor to be appointed to the position. This way, I know the leadership wants me there.”
Cavataio said he was saddened to see English leave but the SGA president said he won’t let the resignations hinder his plans.
“I am sad to see him go, but the opportunity to bring Colleen on my team overshadows my disappointment,” Cavataio said.
Hesperia junior Killian Richeson, a former SGA treasurer, was chosen to replace Wiley as interim treasurer until approved by the general board for the position.
Cavataio said he was confident Richeson would have an easy time fulfilling his role.
Richeson said he was very excited to have the opportunity to hold the treasurer position once again after leaving the position because of academic and family reasons last school year.
Some of Richeson’s biggest concerns as treasurer include the Central Programming Funds and finding ways for the Central Michigan University Program Board to utilize the new McGuirk Arena.
“I am incredibly excited that I have another year to try and make my plans a reality and put more money toward student needs, concerns and entertainment,” Richeson said. “The learning curve will be nonexistent for me.”
Neither English or Wiley could be reached for comment.
