“We are thankful to have been able to serve you for the past year and thankful for the unending amount of support we have received from you. We are so grateful to have met nearly all of you (Clay is USD’s social juggernaut!) and hope to still meet you if we haven’t,” SGA President Erik Muckey wrote in a column for The Volante.
