     HAMMOND – Aron Walker III of New Orleans, president of the Southeastern Louisiana University Student Government Association, has been elected by his fellow student body presidents in the University of Louisiana System to serve on the system’s Board of Supervisors.

     A business major concentrating on human resource management, Walker will serve as the student voice on the board, the governing body of Louisiana’s eight regional universities.

     “I am honored to be representing the students of the University of Louisiana System,” Walker said. “I look forward to working on the Board of Supervisors to help improve our institutions for future generations.”

     System President Sally Clausen said Walker has the leadership abilities to succeed as the student representative on the UL System Board of Supervisors.

     “Aron has proved himself an effective leader who understands many of the issues we face in higher education,” Clausen said. “He brings an important perspective to the Board of Supervisors that is so vital when we are making decisions that directly impact our students.”

     “We are proud of Aron, and I am confident that he will do a great job representing students not only from Southeastern but from all across the state,” said Southeastern President Randy Moffett. “With his wide range of experience in student organizations, Aron is well prepared for this important role on the Board of Supervisors.”

     Active in the Southeastern SGA since 2003, Walker has served as vice president and chairman of the Appropriations Committee. He was elected president this spring. He is a former vice president of the Southeastern Black Student Union, president of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, and coordinator of Project P.U.L.L. (“Promoting Unity through Leadership and Learning”), a Southeastern project that promotes student success through mentoring, leadership development and service.

     Walker is a graduate of St. Augustine High School in New Orleans.

     The University of Louisiana System is the governing body of the state’s eight regional universities that includes, in addition to Southeastern, Grambling, Louisiana Tech, McNeese, Nicholls, Northeastern, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and the University of Louisiana at Monroe. The system is one of the largest university governing boards in the nation with more than 80,000 students attending member institutions.
