ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA - Newly elected Winthrop University Council of Student Leaders (CSL) representatives say they hope to strengthen connections between their peers and the student-led governing body.

Elisabeth West
and Tadean Page, both rising juniors, defeated two other candidate duos for the roles of president and vice president of CSL with 459 votes.

Page said having the confidence of their fellow students going forward is an "amazing feeling."

"It serves as a reminder that because they are confident in our abilities to improve our university, we must do just that," he said. "It is both of our desire to not only talk the talk, but also walk the walk. We can ensure the student body of Winthrop University that we will exhaust all of our efforts to cater to the needs of the students and keep them proud of their decision of voting us into office."

West, a political science major from Hartsville, South Carolina, has served on CSL in various roles, while Page, an elementary education major from Dillon, is a relative newcomer to the group.

Currently, their plans include reshaping CSL in an effort to enhance the leadership abilities of members and, in turn, the Winthrop community. The pair will also focus on making sure CSL is truly responding to the needs of students and their campus organizations and serving as a tool for students.

Both West and Page bring to the table leadership and on-campus experience. In addition to her CSL duties, West has served in active leadership roles for her sorority, Chi Omega, The Johnsonian newspaper, the Academic Success Center, Athletics and the Leadership Institute for First-Timers Conference (LIFT). She also completed summer internships through the National Institutes of Health.

Page founded the I am H.I.M. Scholarship at Winthrop, which provides academic support, resources, motivational stories, community service and an annual monetary award to a selected student. He also served as an Orientation Leader and is a member of the Winthrop chapter of the South Carolina Education Association and the Call Me MISTER program. Outside of school, he's active in his church and in programs at local elementary schools.
