Governor Nixon announced last week that Missouri State University’s next Student Governor will be Paige Jenkins, whose appointment will be confirmed by Missouri legislators on February 22, 2012.
Jenkins, who currently serves as the Chief Sustainability Commissioner for Student Government Association, has played a key role in several projects on campus this year, including the installation of hydration stations in academic buildings and MSU’s purchase of an electric vehicle for campus.
Jenkins will serve a two-year term as Student Governor, during which she will attend all meetings with the Board of Governors and serve as a non-voting representative of student interests.
Jenkins is a junior majoring in Agronomy with a minor in Chinese who hopes to pursue a career in agricultural law after finishing law school.
