Runoff for EVP: Lexi Holt wins
Farmers Branch junior Lexington Holt won the run-off election for external vice president Tuesday night.
Results were announced at 6:30 p.m. outside of Waco Hall. Voting was open to students on Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
When the position of external vice president was revealed to be too close to call last Thursday night at the Five for Fighting benefit concert, Holt said she was nervous.
“I was worried but at the same time, I had faith that the students would choose who the Lariat endorsed and who had the most experience,” Holt said.
Holt won the election against Fort Worth sophomore Dallena Nguyen with 56 percent of the votes. She will hold office with soon-to-be student body president Wesley Hodges, a senior from Richmond, and future internal vice president Dominic Edwards, a sophomore from Arlington. She said she is excited to start preparing for this fall.
“Whenever I can actually take the position in office, I want to work on Passport to Waco and start getting contacts so that I’m ready for the full swing of things in August,” Holt said.
Holt, Hodges and Edwards will be sworn in 5 p.m. Thursday in 203 Cashion Academic Center at the Senate meeting.
