Sophomore Jose Magana and junior Rigo Leon are the newly elected president and vice president of the Associated Students of Washington State University Tri-Cities for the 2013-14 school year.
Magana, a Kennewick High graduate, and Leon, a Mabton High graduate, received more than 53 percent of the vote in elections held last week.
It will be up to Magana and Leon to promote a proposed student union building on campus. Students were set to possibly vote on paying an additional student fee to finance construction.
Outgoing President Amber Eubanks, a senior, said a ballot item was pulled as land being sold by the university to help pay for the building won't be complete for another year.
Never miss a local story.
Eight new student senators-at-large also were elected: Sarah Saenz, Edward Lima, Daniel Martinez, Saul Valdez, Skeetz Guilbea, Pavel Lungu, Alma Rose Leon and Chris Koenig.
