At this time I want to take you on my journey of presidency with Warren Jones. You are probably saying wait one minute Warren you are not currently president but I was Student Government President at the University Of MD Eastern Shore during the school year of 1994 and 1995. Do you remember the campaign slogan that President Barrack Obama used during his campaign CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN……… that slogan was actually stolen from my SGA presidency campaign in which the slogan I used was CHANGE BEGINS WITH YOU.
The University of MD Eastern Shore is located in Princess Anne, MD thirty minutes Salisbury, MD. It has as student population of over 4500 and has many great majors from Aviation to Physical Therapy. While a student at UMES I was involved in various activities before becoming president that made people recognize my personality and abilities that I had. Before becoming SGA President I was active as a resident assistant in which it was my job to ensure fun activities for the students and that women would not come into the dormoitory. I told the students that if I see it I have to do something but if I don’t see anything I can’t do anything All of my books were paid for by being an RA because many of the men would slip me money as much as 50 bucks to ensure that they would not be caught. I was also a student athletic trainer and worked with all of the sports teams on campus and travelled with them. This was fantastic for me because all of my meals were free. Free meals enough said sign me up. This was like having a free buffett 24/7.
I decided to run for SGA president because of one reason Yolando Rozier. She was already was the president and thought that that she was going to win again and was very arrogant and conceited and told everybody that she had no competiton and that she could not lose. As a result of her arrogance and snooty attitude of telling me to my face that no one could beat her I decided to run for SGA president and give a 1000% effort. It was as if I had turned into my favorite all time movie character. I turned into ROCKY BALBOA. I was the clear underdog at first but had the Eye of the Tiger and began to campaign, debate and campaign and debate. It was as if I was running up the steps of the Phildelphia Art Museum in the Rocky movie. Nothing could stop me and I would not be defeated.
On election day I was able to win by 27 votes and became SGA president but the real work began. As SGA president it was my job to work with alumni and students and the most important thing for them was one thing a successful homecoming. They had not had a good recent homecoming and that was what they desired. It was up to me to find out what they wanted and what they wanted was HIP HOP. During this time HIP-HOP was at an all time high so I was able to pull it off. I got the Notorious BIG, I was able to get the Wu in the Tang and get the Wu tang Clan and was able to get Big red also known as RED MAN at this time. The homecoming was as JJ Evans said off of the 70s TV Show Good Times it was DYN-O-MITE. As a result before I leave it was President Warren Jones Before It Was President Barrack Obama.
