Ryan Wright, 2018-19 SGA President

To my Fellow Shaw Bears, 

Thank you for electing me as your next Student Government Association president. I am humbled by your confidence that I will be able to lead and represent Shaw University students. I also want to express my gratitude to my campaign team, all candidates and anyone else who played a part in this race. You all carried out fair campaigns that made for an exciting and competitive election. I was intrigued by your ideas and insights, and hope we are able to implement some of your excellent suggestions. I would like to congratulate fellow elected officers and look forward to serving and working together as a team to represent this group of extraordinary and diverse students. With your platforms I know we can effect a lot of change together.

As your newly elected president, I promise to take into account your interests and voices on the many issues we will face during the upcoming year along with the specific topics I addressed during my campaign. I will begin to look for sources to help better the student body. 

Please continue sharing your ideas and giving feedback, as I will look to find more ways your new student government association can better serve you. To that end, we will be placing a suggestion box in the SGA office located on the 3rd floor of the Willie E. Gary Student Center. Feel free to let us know what you’re thinking. You can include your name, for follow-up purposes, or remain anonymous. We promise to give each comment the consideration it deserves. It’s not about what we can do on our own but representing you to the best of our abilities. Please help us do that. Together we can make Shaw University an even better place.

Thank you again for your support. You can contact at

With Shaw U Pride,    

Ryan A. Wright
Student Government Association President 2018-2019
