Christopher is a senior economics major with a 3.25 G.P.A. in the College of Business Administration. His expected graduation date is May 2010. Since coming to SHSU in Fall 2005, Chris has been described as a walking embodiment of “The Measure of a Life is its Service” by several students, SHSU faculty & staff. Even University President James F. Gaertner has recognized Chris as being “highly involved” and “committed to civic engagement.” Listed below is a snapshot of President Yancy’s extracurricular involvements: “Dear Students, I would really appreciate your support in electing me to my first SGA Presidency term on April 15-16, 2009. I am running for your SGA President because I feel that currently in this one Spring 2009 semester as SGA President I have led my administration to totally revamp SGA’s image into a more positive one with our SHSU students.
Bearkats, please continue believing in the change that has already been made in SGA. Keep the dream alive: Please vote President–Chris Yancy, Vice President–Marcelo Pendleton, Secretary–Monica Eaton, and Treasurer–Efe Mukoro.
Thank you for your time and I would love to answer any questions you may have.
-Christopher B. Yancy
