Corcoran, Ogden elected as leaders of Saint Mary’s Student Government

first_imgSaint Mary’s Student Government Association (SGA) announced the incoming student body president and vice president, juniors Madeleine Corcoran and Kathy Ogden, on Friday afternoon. Chris Collins Juniors Madeleine Corcoran, left, and Kathy Ogden, right, were elected student body president and vice president, respectively, for Saint Mary’s on Friday.Corcoran said her election is especially significant to her because she was chosen by the students to be their representative. “It’s such a special role and such an honor and humbling role just to be chosen by the Saint Mary’s student body to represent them and be their voice,” Corcoran said. “So I think to me it just means so much respect for who we try to be as people and continue to be.”During the campaign, Ogden said she felt that whether or not she was elected, it was important that the College selected leaders that reflected what they desired. “If we weren’t to be elected, my overall thought would’ve been, ‘Well, that’s not what the students want, and we are a representation of the school so if that’s the case then okay,’” Ogden said. “But now it’s cool that since we are elected the student body do want us as their role models. So it’s an honor that we were elected by the student body to be their representatives.”Ogden said she felt the election experience was positive for her because the other candidates were all supportive of each other, she said. “[The other candidates] have just been really friendly and nice and they also campaigned really well,” Ogden said. “Everything was very civil. I just feel like this [election] has been really friendly and supportive.” Corcoran said the fact that the campaign went over smoothly speaks to the community at Saint Mary’s. “I think the campaign overall represents kind of what Saint Mary’s stands for and just that friendly environment that it is,” Corcoran said. “It really encompasses that students are kind and working together.”The pair hopes to emphasize the importance of community, Corcoran said. “The community topic in general is something I am really passionate about, and think is really important at Saint Mary’s,” Corcoran said. The pair said they hope by the end of their term, they will leave Saint Mary’s ‘enhanced’ from years before.“Saint Mary’s is already I think such a wonderful place but from our platform, and just being leaders, I think just making it even better than how it is now,” Ogden said. Corcoran said she hopes to improve upon some of the common complaints by students over the course of the next year. “There is always going to be something to complain about, but a lot of those things that students commonly complain about now, hopefully in a year from now they won’t be,” Corcoran said. Ogden’s time at Saint Mary’s was what gave her the confidence to take on this new role, she said. “I feel like Saint Mary’s has just knocked me out of my shell,” Ogden said. “Not that I was super introverted in high school, but I think I just wouldn’t do a lot of the things that I have done here and I have become more confident so I think that helps. I just have been here for three years but I think with the friends I’ve made and the clubs I’ve been in and my relationships with professors I’ve been able to become more confident and more involved.”Corcoran said she also feels Saint Mary’s provided her the opportunities to develop her passion. “Every time I take on a new role I just fall in love more with Saint Mary’s and what Saint Mary’s has for all of its students, and I think that is such a unique experience that you get at a smaller school,” Corcoran said. Corcoran went into the week hoping just to enjoy the experience, regardless of the result, she said. “I said to Kathy — Sunday, when we went out at midnight to put up the posters — I said, ‘You know what, regardless of how this week goes, as long as we are smiling and laughing throughout the whole thing that’s what’s most important,’” Corcoran said. “Because if you don’t smile and enjoy those moments, it wouldn’t have mattered whatever the outcome was it would’ve been not worth it.”Although the week involved a lot of work, Ogden said she enjoyed being able to communicate with students about their desires as well as her platform. “I thought it was fun,” Ogden said. “It was a lot, but it was fun. Each thing we made and each thing we hung up I think we were really proud of.”The two said they feel the campaign process was a way to get a feel for what the students are looking for during the next year, Corcoran said. “That’s what our goal is, to try and be really open and listen to students and what they need,” Corcoran said. “I think just even the campaigning process we learned more about what students need or want.” Tags: elections, saint mary’s, Student governmentlast_img read more


SEAN’S WINNING MATCHES: CLASSY NAOMH CONAILL BLOW TERMON AWAY TO LIFT LADIES U14 TITLE

first_imgVictorious Naomh Conaill U14 captain Shana Quinn received the County A Championship trophy from referee and County Secretary Siobhan Coyle at O’Donnell ParkSEAN Connaughton is the toast of Glenties, Fintown and everywhere in between tonight after his U14 girls team played Termon off the park in the U14 A Championship final at O’Donnell Park, Letterkenny.In one of the classiest performances seen in a county final at this level in years, the Naomh Conaill girls oozed confidence and talent from start to finish.You can’t teach some of the skills on display, with the first thing each Naomh Conaill player doing was simple – looking up, finding a team mate and finding space. Little wonder then that the girls in blue were 4-03 to no score up at half-time in the Letterkenny sunshine.So good were Naomh Conaill in the second half that they limited Termon to just three scores – all of them points – whilst they went on to add three more goals and three more points.The final score was 7-06 to 0-03 and it could have been more.Every player from the Naomh Conaill side played their hearts out, from goalkeeper to full forward. Orla McGuinness and Danielle McDevitt were particularly exceptional.But our Donegal Daily Player of the Match was the brilliant Amy Boyle Carr, whose stride and vision in possession was a simple joy to watch.Commiserations to Termon who came up against a much better side in the final.And congratulations to Naomh Conaill, half of whose team would grace any County Donegal squad.Perhaps their manager Sean Connaughton might be around next year to manage the county? With this performance, there would be no complaints.Champions of Donegal!
