After more than a month of campaigning, the results are in for the CUSG Presidential and Vice Presidential elections.
Killian McDonald and Jaren Stewart won with 56.38 percent of the votes (2778), according to an email from CUSG Director of Elections Emma Schafer. A total of 4,961 votes were cast during the election.
“I had to keep myself standing up, I was actually holding on to Killian when we heard, so we’re just excited, I’d say really, really excited,” Stewart said when asked about his initial reaction to hearing his and McDonald’s names announced.
McDonald and Stewart are already making plans for what they want to do once they take office.
“I think one of the first things we want to do is start looking at diversity and inclusivity: what steps we can start to make to make this a more inclusive campus, to make it a more diverse campus … How can we make everybody feel like they belong in the Clemson Family? … What steps we can start thinking about taking right now?” McDonald said.
Both elects agreed that they couldn’t have done it without their supporters.
“I … just want to say thank you, I want this to be as much everybody’s campaign as it is our campaign, because this really was a campaign for students, and I’m just so overwhelmed that so many people saw themselves in our campaign,” McDonald said. “So many people I didn’t know volunteered to join, so I just want to say thank you and I hope we make you proud.”
