Parliamentarian, Aidan Bobik ’25, talked about his victory of Executive Vice President and future goals in CSG. 

I want to thank students for their support, and I look forward to working with the rest of the Executive Board and Senate in the upcoming year,” he said. “Our predecessors initiated a lot of important work, and I think our most important task is to build on those efforts and make CSG a truly representative and effective body for students.” 

With his position, he wants to evaluate CSG’s structure and improve it to support the student body. 

Class 2026 Vice President, Gabrielle Slovikosky, shared enthusiasm for her new role. 

“I am very excited for this upcoming year in student government. I will strive to run the undergraduate budget committee to the best of my ability,” she said.

Current Vice President of Communications, Jada Jenkins ’26, was nominated and appointed by Executive President Abdul Malik ’23 for the position. However, she felt honored that other students elected her to the position. 

“It was a nice feeling that my fellow council members trusted me to take on the role but actually having the student body elect me in was more important to me,” Jenkins said. 

Finally, Class 2025 President, Jackson Adkins was excited about his position as executive president, and the goals he wants to achieve next semester like the athlete and non-athlete student divide.

“I want to work more with athletes and non-athletes and learn what we need to do to build a stronger Chatham community,” he said.
