Dean Drescher and Mohammad Saad are unbeatable when they’re together.
Or so says their campaign manager, Spencer Beasley.
“If they are together, they are like an unstoppable force,” Beasley said of the team running for senior class presidents.
Drescher, a journalism and religious studies double major, said she was inspired to run for the position by former student body president Eve Carson.
“When I was a summer editor for The Daily Tar Heel, I wrote a column about Eve Carson,” Drescher said. “I was inspired by her commitment to help her classmates.”
Saad, a health policy and management major, said he first became interested in the position when he became involved in First-Year Focus Council, a student government organization for freshmen.
“I saw a class unity that I didn’t expect in college,” he said. “I didn’t see it as much though in other levels of student government.”
This sense of class unity is what the pair said they hope to bring the senior class. They plan on offering events that will appeal to all groups in the class. Senior trivia nights, picnics on the quad and movie nights are included in their social platform.
They also said they want to make service opportunities more accessible to seniors.
