Student Government introduced a new Cabinet position during its first general body meeting on Wednesday, Aug. 31, in the Library Auditorium.

The position, vice president of advancement, was established over the summer via online vote. Junior marketing and Spanish double major Christina Kopka was appointed to the position by SG President Olaniyi Solebo, senior political science major.

The VP of advancement will deal with marketing SG to students and helping to “get its name out there.”

“She’s been working hard on some of our marketing work,” Solebo said.

Solebo closed the meeting by reading his Welcome Back address. He was scheduled to read the speech during Convocation, which was originally slated for Monday, Aug. 29. The annual ceremony for incoming freshmen was canceled due to Hurricane Irene.
