The Western Student Association could go through a change of leadership this coming week if the Senate votes replace Collin Mays with Anna Salvaggio as the new Vice-President.
Mays recently published a book and will be going on tour in the Midwest.
Mays has a long list of accomplishments across the country and will be featured in this year’s “Who’s Who in Black Detroit,” an annually published book that highlights the accomplishments of successful African Americans in the Detroit area.
With his recent accomplishments and upcoming book tour, Mays realized that he would be unable to put his entire effort into being Vice President of WSA and therefore decided to step down so WSA could hire someone who would be able to be more dedicated.
Many candidates were interviewed over the summer, but in the end WSA President, Sean Nicholl, decided on Salvaggio to fill the position.
“I chose Anna Salvaggio to fill [Collin’s] place based on her vast experience on campus, and her work ethic that I have seen out of her throughout the years here at WMU,” said Nicholl.
The Senate will vote whether or not to accept Salvaggio as the new vice president the WSA meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 12.
Nicholl said that although Salvaggio will have a little bit to catch up on, it appears that she fully capable of handling the responsibilities.
