Who’s Who in SGA Jackie Reed President Pro-Tempore

Jackie Reed is a senior, holding the position of President Pro-Tempore on the Student Government Association’s Senate. She is a communication major focusing on the public relations and journalism cluster. Her position involves filling in for the Vice President of SGA if he or she in not present, and delegates tasks.

Reed joined the Senate as part of the fresh start program her freshman year. Originally, she saw the perspective of joining SGA as a good way to get involved and meet new people.

“I had no idea how passionate I would become about the organization or how far it would take me in my college career,” Reed said.

She described how she feels very fortunate to be able to work with a variety of student leaders, advisors, and faculty at the University.

“Senate has provided me with opportunities I never thought I would have.” Reed served as Finance Chair last year where she met with the leaders and advisors from many clubs and organizations on campus to allocate over half a million dollars for their programming. She also had the opportunity to work with fellow Senators and advisors to increase funding for club sports.

“SGA has allowed me to truly make a difference on this campus and be a voice for my peers. It is safe to say that joining SGA has been the best decision of my life. I’ve been involved, made a difference, and made friendships that will last beyond these four years,” Reed said.

She said that if she could give any advice to freshmen, it would be to get involved and find something they’re passionate about. For those thinking about joining Senate, Reed strongly encourages them to do so.

Meetings are every Wednesday at 2:30 on the third floor of the Student Center, and are open to everyone.

New faces and fresh ideas are always welcome. Students who have any questions can also email SGA at SGA@monmouth. edu.
