Third year LSU law student and current SBA Executive President, Clare Sanchez, has been elected to the prestigious Board of Supervisors. The Board of Supervisors is the governing body for the entire LSU system. It represents approximately 250,000 students. The Board oversees expansions, renovations, new degree requirements, and approves new majors, among other things. It is a fifteen-member board, with fourteen being appointed by the Governor. Each member represents the districts of Louisiana.
Sanchez is the student member, which is the only position not appointed by Governor Jindal. Instead, Clare was elected by the other seven Presidents from each of the eight LSU schools. Those schools include but are not limited to: LSU-Eunice, LSU-Alexandria, LSU-Shreveport, and the Health and Science Center. Essentially, Sanchez is the voice of the students for all LSU schools.
