Greg Imhoff and Max Giard share a campaign trait this Student Government election season—they are running without any opponents.
Imhoff, an English and Secondary Education major, is running for Academic Vice President.
Giard, a political science, film and finance triple major, is running for the position of Vice President of Finance.
“I’ve worked under our current finance chair for the past year… he’s a good friend and I’ve learned a lot from him and I’m ready to take the mantle,” Giard said.
The position Giard is running for is no light one. The Vice President of Finance, according to updated SGA bylaws, has monthly meetings with the College Vice President of Finance, Mr. Terry Dennis.
Beyond regularly scheduled meetings, the VP of finance for SGA must also be able to wisely supervise the distribution of funds and keep track of the receipts and reimbursements that pertain specifically to SGA.
Finally, the Vice President of Finance must keep records to submit to the SGA president every month for the purposes of accountability and safety.
Imhoff, if he is voted in as Academic Vice President, has several goals in regards to said position. He hopes to increase interdepartmental communication and facilitate an effective professor-to-student open line through events like forums so that anyone can communicate to faculty “know(s) what’s working and what’s not,” Imhoff said.
Both men also have the long goal in mind. Imhoff is a student representative for the Peace Corps at FSC and hopes to teach abroad with them post-graduation. Giard has “a passion for finance” and hopes to combine his three majors so that he may work on the business and money side of filmmaking.
Each of them has had experience with SGA in the past—Giard as a First-Year Senator and Imhoff as senator one year and Secretary of the Executive Board this year (a position that has been eliminated as of this election).
They also serve around campus in other faculties as well, especially in Greek Life and academic honors societies. Imhoff is Ritual Chair for Sigma Tau Delta, the English Honors Society.
