James Andrew "Drew" Davis has been elected 2008-09 president of the Samford University Student Government Association.

A junior political science major from Raleigh, N.C., Davis was elected last week by vote of the undergraduate student body.

Re-elected to their student executive council posts for the next academic year were Allyson Dewell of Mableton, Ga., vice president for events; Lee J. Ross, Jr., of Pelham, vice president for programming; and Madeleine Mula of Mandeville, La., vice president for development.

Two executive positions, chief of staff and chief justice, will be appointed later.
