March 9, 2004 -- Jacksonville State University's Student Government Association has four new officers to lead them through the 2004-05 school year.
Heading up the Association is the new President, Emily Williams, of Hokes Bluff.
"I am extremely excited about serving the student body," she said. "I hope to educate it to the many positive aspects of the SGA. In addition to working directly with the students, I hope to improve the campus of JSU by working with the faculty and the staff. I plan on being the liaison between the students and the faculty to ensure satisfaction from both groups."
Williams is an English major in her junior year. She is pursuing a minor in Spanish. After graduation she'd like to obtain her master's degree in college student affairs, and possibly pursue a doctorate as well.

Mardracus L. Russell of Dadeville is the new vice president of student activities. He is a music education and social science major. He plans to become a band director or a social science teacher on the secondary level.

Crow also said she would like to continue
