Ford/Jordan Earn Panhel Endorsement, Agnihotri/Fleming Earn NPHC/MGC Nod

For the second day in a row, the Ford/Jordan UPUA ticket earned a big endorsement. The Panhellenic Council offered their support for the ticket just one day after the IFC did the same.

“Our experience in the past with Terry as Vice President of the UPUA has been very positive, and we have faith that he would make an excellent President,” Panhellenic Council president Madeline Strasser told Onward State. “Terry and Katie have both ensured that they will serve with the best interests of the Greek community in mind, and we look forward to hopefully working with them in the future.”

Both tickets gave a presentation to the Council last night, and it made the decision to endorse Ford and Jordan today. Again, it’s interesting to note that neither Ford nor Jordan are member of Greek life, while their opponents, Divy Agnihotri and Megan Fleming, are.

Ford and Jordan didn’t quite clean house, however. The Agnihotri/Fleming ticket managed to force a split between the four Greek councils by taking the National Pan-Hellenic Council and the Multicultural Greek Council’s endorsements, though these orgs boast less chapters, and therefore members, than the IFC and PHC.

Disclaimer: Vice presidential candidate Megan Fleming is Onward State’s former managing editor. Read our statement on UPUA election coverage here.
