Volume 10 Number 30 UTAH TECHNICAL COLLEGE AT PROVOOREM - P.O. Box 1609, Provo, Utah 84603 May 2, 1983 Wilson Elected 1983-84 Studentbody President By Linda Jensen Gordon Wilson, Business Management major at UTC has been elected studentbody president for 1983-84. Wilson's Challengers followed suit in each of their respective offices, giving them a clean sweep victory over the opposing Woodstock Party. A record number of 885 students participated in the elections, out of the total 4,500 students enrolled at UTC. This was the highest turnout for elections, involving 19.36 percent of the studentbody. New officers will be sworn in at the Student Awards Banquet which will be held May 5 in the cafeteria at 7:00 a.m. The new council will work with the current student council to plan activities for the remainder of the school year. "One of the first things we will be doing," said Jil Richardson, new Social V.P., "is to work with the current student council in promoting "The Toons" Concert on May 14. We have a lot of other ideas for the remainder of this year and for next year, but we must have our ideas approved by the administration before we can make any announcements as to what they will be," Jil continued. Scott Killian, new Financial Director stated, "One thing we want to accomplish next year is to involve both campuses and all departments of the school. We plan to have a wide variety of activities which will meet the interests of more students," he concluded.

The new Studentbody President says the competition was tough and the three "Off the Wall" candidates will be a strong asset to his team. Wilson says he is looking into more committees and student input.
