Vice President of Student Affairs, Dr. William Hudson, swore in Chief Justice Audri Salter, Senate Pro-Tempore Jaelen Jackson and Senate President Rochard Moriciette.

Devin Harrison, a senior public relations major and former SGA President, is very supportive of this year’s administration.

“They are like my little brother and sister,” Harrison stated. “I am very excited to see them push through with their initiatives and give back to the student body. I feel like they are continuing the Bruno-Harrison legacy and I am very proud to call them my President and Vice President.”

After being declared the official president and vice president, the Jackson-Seniors administration began to touch base on their platform points.  

Jackson, a junior business administration major from Tallahassee, expressed his gratitude to God, his family, friends and the student body for allowing him to serve as their president: “This a dream come true.”

“We made it possible for students to meet the gubernatorial candidates,” Jackson explained.

“We advocated to bring voting to campus; we partnered with the Office of Graduate Studies to host the largest Graduate Feeder Conference; we advocated for the financing of new resident halls and we made sure to plan the livest homecoming FAMU has ever seen. And it’s only the third week of school.”

Alexis Lynn, a junior broadcast journalism major from Tallahassee and the current Secretary of State, expressed her excitement for being a part of the Jackson-Seniors administration.

“This is my second year in SGA," Lynn said. “Working under David and Robyn has been a wonderful experience. We all work together cohesively and we get work done effectively. I am ecstatic to see what the rest of this academic year has in store” said Lynn.

Yayri Hazell, a graduating senior public relations major from Atlanta, was very excited to see the recent work of the Jackson-Seniors administration.

“I’ve been at FAMU for four years and this year the atmosphere is different. I truly do believe that these student leaders care about the best interests of the students” said Hazell.

Jackson and Seniors will go down in Florida A&M history as the youngest President and Vice President ever.
