KOJO ASAMOA-CAESAR ELECTED PRESIDENT OF STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION

Kojo Asamoa-Caesar, a junior majoring in communications, was elected president of the Old Dominion University Student Government Association for the 2007-08 academic year.

Also elected were:
Paul Johnston, a sophomore majoring in criminal justice, as vice president for internal affairs;
Andrew Curtis, a graduate student in public health, as vice president for external affairs;
Donald Babcock, a freshman majoring in business, as senator;
Daniel Fawcett, a finance and real estate major, as senator, and
Christine Hollenbock, a sophomore majoring in biology, as senator.

A native of Alexandria who grew up in Ghana, Asamosa-Caesar ran for office to combine and further his leadership experiences while serving his fellow students. He hopes to carry on the progress made by the current administration.

"I am dedicated to the issues that affect student's everyday lives," he explained. "I will go above and beyond the call of duty and work to change the culture of the campus from apathy to excited awareness and address broader issues such as diversity and unity.

"I believe we have the right procedures and programs in place and we have done some tremendous work, however students don't know about it. So I believe it is my job to get that out there to the students in hopes that their awareness will spark their involvement."

Also elected were Paul Johnston, Vice President for Internal Affairs; Andrew Curtis, Vice President for External Affairs; and Senators Donald Babcock, Daniel Fawcett, Christine Hollenbock, all of which were unopposed. The total votes cast were 1,010.
