The senior class marshals met Sunday to select who would move up from marshal positions to the open posts.
The marshals chose Brian Oten to serve as chief marshal and Byron Wilson as the senior class vice president-elect. Wilson must go before Student Congress on Tuesday for approval.
The positions were vacated last month when former Chief Marshal Annie Peirce and former Senior Class Vice President Ursula Dimmling resigned, citing internal conflicts with senior class officers.
"These people are more in line with what the marshals wanted and what I wanted," said Senior Class President Ben Singer.
He said Oten and Wilson both bring leadership experience to their positions but that any of the marshals would have been qualified to move up to the posts.
"We were very selective in who we picked as marshals, so I would have been satisfied with any one of the marshals," Singer said.
Despite the change in leadership, Singer said the senior class officers' progress will not be hindered.
He said the officers used their last meeting to refocus and reinforce their priorities.
"It's unfortunate that what has happened has cast a dark shadow upon the senior class because we have done a lot of good," Singer said.
