George Washington University sophomore Peak Sen Chua, who was elected Student Association executive vice president earlier this month, will assume the role of SA president on May 2.
In an email to George Washington University students, current SA president Erika Feinman said the organization couldn’t function without a president and executive cabinet. Feinman recommended Mr. Chua assume the role of SA president based on powers granted to him in the governing documents.
Feinman said the SA is confident in Mr. Chua’s ability to lead the organization. Mr. Chua, who is majoring in public health and political science, has named campaign opponent Sydney Nelson as his new executive vice president. The appointment was confirmed by the SA.
Tim Miller, associate dean of students, said, "We look forward to working with the new leadership."
