Meet Shawn McCreary, president of Student Senate. McCreary’s main goal for the senate this year is to promote more student life on campus. “It is difficult because it is a two year college, but we are trying to get more student activities here on campus,” McCreary said. McCreary was a former senator and floor leader in senate before becoming president. A psychology major here at RSC, he is planning to continue his education at either OU or UCO.
