  • Student Body Secretary: freshman Layla Warren, of St. Helena Island

  • Student Body Treasurer: junior Daniel Oluwarotimi, of Lagos, Nigeria

  • Senator-at-Large: junior Jareed Raymond, of Estill

  • Sophomore Class President: Amaria Thompson, of Summerville

  • Sophomore Class Vice President: Katie Parker, of Edgefield


Outgoing Student Body President Nathaniel Carrasco, a senior from Las Vegas, Nevada, delivered his farewell remarks.


“We’ve come a long way, and we have so much more to accomplish. But as all presidential terms, mine has come to an end, and the next wave of leaders will carry on the culture of excellence,” he said. “I give my blessing to the new Student Government Association and my blessings to all of you. You all have greatness within you, and a responsibility to manifest that greatness.”


The presidents and vice presidents of the junior and incoming freshman classes will be elected this fall.
