At an every week committee meeting between President, Vice-President and Chairs, the Student Government Association had talked about a change in its executive board.
Christina Williams resigned Monday morning from her vice president position.
Williams is a senior majoring in Environmental Engineering from Austin. She has been involved in SGA since coming to the university.
“It was something necessary I had to do in order to move forward faithfully. I love SGA and there was no conflict or negativity thrown into my decision to leave,” said Williams.
The former SGA member will be replaced by Enzo Soza, previously senator pro tempore of SGA. Senator pro tempore always steps in when the vice president is absent or resigns.
“I’m feeling a little nervous, I was shocked when I heard what happened and wasn’t really prepared for it,” said Soza, a history major.
Last semester, Soza along with Christina Williams and Ethen Peña all ran for vice president. Williams won for this current semester.
Plans for elections have not yet been announced.
“Just moving forward, having an ear keen to the voice of the lord and whatever direction that takes me in. I don’t have all the answers, I just know who my rock is and where I can rest,” said Williams.
“I have to step up and finish the session as strong as I can, which is only a few months so I believe I can do it. And hopefully I can pass the gavel to the next Vice-President who will continue to improve and help SGA,” said Soza.
