Chris O'Connor, a culinary arts major, likes to help others and wants other students to know they can count on him as a man of integrity.

Kaylee Proffitt, a social work and elementary education major, plans to transfer to East Tennessee State University and eventually earn a graduate degree in social work. She volunteers at small community organizations and understands the many concerns students may have. She also understands how to compromise when making tough decisions. She appreciates this chance to give back the kindness and appreciation that has been shown to her by everyone at Walters State.
Kaylee will be a voice for the Greeneville/Greene County Campus. She plans on listening with open ears and seeing with wide eyes the changes that could be made or suggestions that could be followed. She feels that part of being the SGA representative is being someone that other students can come to with any problem, big or small. I am eager to help plan the future of Walters State.
