New RHA president takes throne tonight
Sam Brace, a journalism junior, will be elected president of the Residence Hall Association tonight at the general body meeting where he will run for the position unopposed.
Brace filled in as the interim president after Daila Temple resigned from the position over the summer.
The RHA president is responsible for supervising the organization and making sure goals are met, Brace said.
"I feel I have strong vision of what our residents need," Brace said. "And I'm willing to do whatever it takes to help develop a strong foundation for other RHA executive boards to build off of in the future."
