Jack Johnson takes the SGA student body presidential seat tonight by 280 votes. Johnson won the election by a 10.59 percent margin.
In the new year, Johnson said he plans to increase school spirit and safety on campus, look into more parking options for students and address mental health at Elon. Johnson said he wants to begin these initiatives by reforming the bylaws.
