As the student government elections have come to an end, Shippensburg University’s elected officers will begin to take on their new positions. Student-athlete, Madison Scarr has been elected as the student senate president as she enters her third year of being involved in Student Government.
The Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, native is in her junior year at SU, aiming to graduate with a bachelor’s in accounting and get her master’s in business. Her dream is to work with the FBI someday.
Aside from her duties in student senate, Scarr is also a part of the SU field hockey team. Scarr said being on a team has helped her with time management and given her the ability to successfully work as a team.
“I like being involved in things in order to help the greater cause,” Scarr said.
During her sophomore year, Scarr was the college of business senator and this year she is the college athletic representative.
Scarr is also involved in Tau Kappa Athletic Sorority, as well as the rec committee, budget and finance committee and Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) via senate.
“Over the years I just fell in love with it and I’m really passionate about hearing people’s concerns and doing what I can to fix them,” Scarr said.
As elected president, Scarr plans to continue and encourage involvement and unity by the student body on campus to help decrease the divide between students.
“Equality is something I really stress,” Scarr said.
For the future, Scarr also wants to use social media more to make Student Government more known.
“I want us, as Student Government, to give feedback and for students to know they can come to us with their concerns,” Scarr said.
Scarr has high hopes as she enters her first term as student senate president.
