UPUA Election Season Begins, Three Presidential Tickets Announced
It’s mid-March, which for Penn State can only mean one thing — it’s UPUA election season.
Campaigning kicked off today at 7 a.m., and you have no doubt already received a barrage of Facebook invitations from various campaigns. With current UPUA President T.J. Bard announcing his intention to not seek re-election, three executive tickets qualified for the ballot and have their sights set on replacing him.
- Courtney Lennartz (V.P. – Katelyn Mullen): Junior majoring in Health Policy and Administration, Current UPUA Vice-President
- Evan Ponter (V.P. – Ryan Kristobak): Junior majoring in Journalism, Current Onward State staff writer
- Maggie Quinn (V.P. – Gina Feghali): Junior majoring in Public Relations with a minor in Business, Current UPUA Press Secretary
