BAYBAY CITY, Leyte – After serving one year in the highest executive position in the student council, the once hesitant candidate has gained another nod of approval from his peers to serve as the VSU student regent for the second time.
John Allan Gulles has been re-elected the University Supreme Student Council (USSC) President in a 8-3 vote against College of Arts and Science (CAS) President, Junrey Goles, following the culmination of the second Student Leadership Congress on July 22, Saturday, at the VSU gymnatorium.
Gulles’s re-election will give him a fresh one-year mandate to represent the VSU students in the VSU Board of Regents, the university's highest governing body that makes policy decisions.
In an interview with the VSU Media Team, Gulles admitted the heavy responsibility of having the president-elects of different colleges entrust the responsibility to him one more time.
“[Being elected as USSC president] gives me the same chills but it’s more overwhelming than before knowing that they [college president-elects] are giving you their trust once more,” he said.
He however followed this with renewed eagerness to do better than before.
“The adjustment period is over. This time, I can guide the council to where we really want to go,” he said.
The results of the elections are as follows:
President: John Allan Gulles
Vice-President: Dexter Ramirez
Secretary General: Chad Christian Wales
Treasurer: Jamaica Mueda
Auditor: Randy Senado

Junrey Goles (CAS)
