  • Izamary Lara, Action

As a First Generation Latina Woman , I was always on the look for a helping hand to help me find my way through college. I am running because I hope to be and advocate for our student body and that hand students can reach out to when they need help not only in the College of Sciences but all across the university! I hope to be able to bridge the communication gaps between students and faculty as well as provide more resources to our students to help them succeed.

I was born in Houston,Texas but grew up in Lafayette and I speak both English and Spanish. I work for the Office of Residential Life as an RA in Coronna Hall, I also am involved in our Honors Program, Peer Mentor Program, and Residential Hall Association.

  • Elissa Harb, EXCEL

As an International Student, SGA was never something we knew of or were looking to interact with. Truthfully, only had known it mainly by name and not by actions. I have made it my responsibility to ensure that not only International Students feel inclined to communicate and get involved with SGA where the need arises, but also all students.

Lebanese born and raised.Trilingual: fluent in Arabic, French and English.Human teeth enthusiast (Dentistry). President of Alpha Lambda Delta - Honor Society for First Year Academic Success. President of the International Student Council. Lead Peer Mentor. Worked as Mentor for the UL Life program.

  • Brenden Daigle, Action

After a year of involvement as an SGA Secretary of Wellness, I am hoping to further expand my involvement as a representative of the student body! I enjoy serving my peers by voicing the needs of their various forms of involvement, and I hope to continue to do my best to adequately support and address these needs!

I am currently acting in the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity as their Treasurer, the honors college, SGA as a secretary of wellness, and as a proud member of the Action party!

  • Kylie Zeno, EXCEL

I decided to run for SGA to help improve our campus and student body. Every student at the university deserves to have a voice and EXCEL in their studies. I am ready to serve and enhance the College of Sciences.

I am a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.

  • Brandon Scie, EXCEL
  • Joseph Lonero, Action

Originally, I was encouraged by my peers to join the Action Party and to run as a senator; however, my reason for running is much more than this. As a biology pre-med student, I interact with many other students in the college of sciences and am frequently in Billeaud, Wharton, and Montgomery Hall, so I am able to experience first hand what many students desire to see in the classroom and in their program. I have had to opportunity to meet so many great people and have made life long friends at this college, and if I am elected to be a senator, I hope to use this position to serve and to give back to the many incredible people of this college.

I am the biggest Saints fan in Lafayette!

  • Jillian Ferguson, EXCEL

Jillian really loves this University, and wants to see it be the best University if can be!

Jillian is a student ambassador for the university and is apart of HOSA.

  • Peyton Parrish, Action
  • Chloee Holt, Independent

​Once elected, I will ensure all opinions and ideas about our campus needs will be heard and considered. I will work to expand our college’s involvement in our community assisting individuals who could use an extra hand. Maintaining our naturally beautiful campus is important, and I will lead preservation efforts so that the next generation of students can continue to study, enjoy, and maintain its native integrity.

I am passionate about natural science and preserving our ecosystems on and off campus. Community involvement is very important to me. I have volunteered in my community planting native wildflowers in Moncus Park, to beautify the natural landscape. I am a firm believer that we all should play a role in helping others who are in need. I am working to start a food backpack program that would provide food at no cost to K-12 students and their families. My little sister is a Make-A-Wish kid. My mom, sisters, and I volunteer with the foundation so other children like her can have the same opportunity to make wishes of their own. One fun fact about me: My mom is a professor. She published a book this past July, (Revisiting John Dewey: Applying What He Said 100 Years Ago to Today’s Need). My sisters and I got to write the forward in her book. My mom is my best friend and my greatest role model. She’s always taught me to use my voice to stand up for my community, my school, and my environment. I can’t wait to use my voice to represent you in SGA!
