The Black Hills State University Student Senate is under new leadership.

Lucas Fralick and Elizabeth Williams were elected as the new BHSU Student Senate president and vice president for the 2015-2016 academic year recently. Fralick, a political science and history major from Gillette, Wyo., will serve as president and Williams, a business administration-economics and finance major from Miles City, Mont., will serve as vice president.

The newly elected Student Senate executive officers met this week to get acquainted and discuss plans. The BHSU Student Senate is the student governing body, which helps students develop leadership skills by representing fellow BHSU students at a state, local and University level.

Fralick has been involved with the Student Senate for three years, previously as a student senator. This is Williams first year serving on the Student Senate.

"I&rsquove always liked public service," Fralick said. "I like serving the people, and this is a great way to enhance my leadership and public speaking skills."

"It&rsquos a great way to get involved on campus and get my voice heard," Williams added.

The 2015-2016 Student Senate is:

&middot Lucas Fralick, president, political science and history major from Gillette, Wyo.

&middot Elizabeth Williams, vice president, business administration-economics and finance major from Miles City, Mont.

&middot Brittany Thompson, office administrator, political science and psychology major from Spearfish

&middot Karin Humar, student senator, marketing and public relations major from Slope, Slovenia

&middot Brent Hunter, student senator, biology and chemistry major from Albuquerque, N.M.

&middot Katrina Schrader, student senator, business administration-human resource management major from Johnsburg, Ill.

&middot Bradley Branson, student senator, secondary science education major from Riverton, Wyo.

&middot Kaitlin Spargur, student senator, exercise science major from Spearfish

&middot Brady Jones, student senator, mass communication major from Spearfish

&middot Keely Kleven, student senator, political science major from Williston, N.D.

&middot Bailey Sadowsky, student senator, corporate communication major from Hettinger, N.D.

The Student Senate will work on an outreach campaign this summer to promote the Student Senate organization on campus and in the community, as well as organize committees to boost school spirit and on-campus participation, Fralick said.

The Student Senate would like to create more programming and participation in the student organizations on campus, said Brittany Thompson, Student Senate office administrator and political science and psychology major from Spearfish.

"We want people to attend the games and activities on campus. That will trickle down to students wanting to attend even more events on campus," Fralick said.

The Student Senate added a new executive officer position for the 2015-2016 academic year to spearhead campus involvement. The position, campus and external relations officer, will be filled before the fall semester.

"This is a good opportunity to get involved on campus," Thompson said. "You&rsquore taking on a leadership role, and from my experience, it makes a huge difference. I&rsquove become more confident in knowing my student voice is being heard."
