SGA Executive Vice President Candidates










Junior Zach Carter is a broadcast journalism major and feels that his “easy going” and relatable personality makes him an ideal candidate for the position. Carter is involved in Student Programming Association, the NAACP, Housing and Residence life and News6. He is also the founder and president of SPA. Carter feels that “SGA is the best and most influential student organization on campus,” and he hopes to use his position on the senate to represent the student body. He hopes to continue the work that SGA has performed this year and strengthen relationships amongst constituents. Carter believes that, being a minority, he can help work for people who do not have as big of a voice on campus as well as “be an inspiration to other minorities who may be afraid or intimidated to run.”









Sophomore Jacob Wickliffe is a business administration major and is involved in Student Orientation Staff, STEM, executive member and vice president of public relations Bear Den and recruitment committee chair, Balance Man scholarship chair and vice president of recruitment of Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. Wickliffe served on SGA this past year and “fell in love with the organization.” He has several plans to help SGA and the UCA community, such as using the SGA Historian position to research previous decisions on situations; aiding the growth of committees like the Ethics Committee; and continuing the Senate Advancement work that the current SGA has accomplished thus far. Wickliffe holds himself to a high sense of integrity, and wants to assist the SGA in growing “not by change or complacency, but [by]adding a new light to the already thriving organization.” He places great importance in the value of listening and says that his listening skills will allow him to “serve others and put UCA and the students before [himself].”










Sophomore Kaitlyn Thompson is a communication sciences and disorders major who wants to “be the voice for all students’ concerns and suggestions.” Thompson is involved in organizations on campus including Student Government Association, Student Orientation Staff, I.d.e.a.l, Honors College, and New Member King Chair of Alpha Sigma Alpha. Previously, she has held the positions of freshman and sophomore president of SGA. Thompson hopes that being elected will allow her to continue working on many in-progress projects the current SGA has explored like carpooling to prevent students driving under the influence. She also hopes to expand the Big Event next year and knows that her experience chairing the Big Event committee this year will make her knowledgeable in helping the next committee. Thompson expresses that issues concerning parking, housing and food services “will always be a top priority to me” as they are important to students. Her organized and task oriented personality are what she believes will make her a good candidate for the position, because she is “good at setting up goals and using [her]determination to achieve them.”
