Students at Edinburgh Napier re-elected Tom Zanelli, sole presidential candidate in the Napier Student’s Association election.
In a statement to The Journal Tom Zanelli said “I am delighted to have won the student elections for 2012 and it really is an honour to represent such a fantastic mix of students from Edinburgh Napier and in my opinion the best students in Edinburgh.
“I’d like to thank everyone that voted in the student elections as the representation for every position improved.”
Mr Zanelli’s previous term has been characterised by a drive to foster greater pride in the Napier student body, coining the phrase “Team Napier spirit” in the process.
Zanelli suggests that there has been some success, pointing to Napier students’ greater engagement with their association during the past year, and arguing that “it wouldn’t have been possible without the changing positive attitude and representation throughout the NSA.”
As well as reiterating his commitment to the creation of a Students’ Association bar [see The Journal Issue 57], he outlines “even bigger plans” for his second term in the NSA executive, including social spaces on campus, improving teaching standards, and “the biggest Fresher’s Week in the UK come September”.
Also elected to sabbatical positions were Daniel Parker, Vice President Sports and Societies and Liseli Sitali was elected Vice President for Reps and Volunteers.
In addition Tom Strode-Walton, Milos Cerovsky and David Robinson were elected as officers for Equality and Diversity, Activities and Business School and Well-Being respectively.
