Ashley Le elected Student Association president

Junior Ashley Le was narrowly elected Student Association president Wednesday with about 51 percent of the vote.

Le, who will be the first female Asian-born SA president in recent history, ran on a platform focused on implementing a mandatory first-year course on diversity and campus resources, allowing students to take an 18th credit without paying an added fee and expanding community service opportunities.

She beat out her opponent, junior Imani Ross, by 230 votes in one of the closest presidential races in recent history.

Sophomore Ojani Walthrust overwhelmingly won his bid for executive vice president capturing about 71 percent of the vote. Walthrust is currently an undergraduate senator for the Elliott School of International Affairs.
