SWGA Young GOP win seats

March 1, 2004

Albany-- Young Republicans are making a name for themselves.

Darton student Liz Schillo is now Financial Secretary of the Georgia Association of College Republicans.

She was elected over the weekend at a convention in Kennesaw.

Darton's "College Republicans" made a good showing, "Actually for this convention we were allotted ten delegates because of our member size and we were the fourth largest in the state among delegates."

That's quite an accomplishment considering the group only started a year ago with just six members. Now they have 71.

A Valdosta State University student, Chris West, was elected Vice Chairman.

This is the first time in several years college students from outside the Atlanta-Athens area have been elected.
