Our first members-only meeting of the Fall occurred last week…
…and it was an important: we held elections for President, Secretary, VP of Membership, and Historian. Thankfully, some of these things were taken care of by “game-time,” as the races for President and Secretary were uncontested.
By acclamation, then, Yvette Mendoza was elected President, and Jasmine Crooks elected Secretary. From this point on, Yvette took over as the presiding officer of the meeting.
For Vice-President of Membership, we had three candidates: Jesus Ayala, Jacelin Daniels, and Angela Moreno. Each were given three minutes to discuss their reasons for running, and they all did well.
Following this race, the candidates for Historian took over, with Stone Lambeth and Mckenna Nonnenmann followed. Again, both did well.
While discussions about upcoming events took place–including next week’s visit by Texas Tech Law School–the students voted and the officers waited, patiently.
With a record number of 85 students in attendance, the counting took a while, but when the dust had settled and the votes were counted, we were able to name Jacelin Daniel as VP of Membership and Mckenna Nonnenmann (a freshman!).
The meeting then soon ended, with a group photo of the Fall 2022 officers (including returning VP of Finance, Emily Albright), and many good things to come!
We would like to thank all the candidates, successful and unsuccessful, for their effort to contribute to the Pre-Law Society.
