Aleeza Katz Elected SCWSC President in Second Redo Election
Aleeza Katz (SCW ‘20) was elected Stern College for Women Student Council (SCWSC) President on Thursday, Sept. 5 in the second redo of the Spring 2019 elections. The original election on May 2 was first postponed to May 6 “due to a lack of clarity in campaign policy,” according to the Canvassing Committee. That special election yielded no results after both candidates were disqualified.
Although they were allowed to run again, the two previously disqualified candidates declined to run in this election, and Katz ran unopposed. The election was administered by the Office of Student Life under parameters that did not fall under the old or newly-ratified Beren student Constitution, The Observer reported, since the new Constitution will only go into effect after the conclusion of the SCWSC presidential election.
In the other result of the election, Nina Anina (SCW ‘23) was elected SCWSC Freshman Representative.
Katz commented, “I decided to run for the position of SCWSC President because I want to be a leader in creating a more welcoming environment that serves our needs and allows us to feel at peace in our home away from home.” She added that she is “excited to work with the other members of SCWSC to plan exciting events that will bring Stern students together on various occasions throughout the year.”
