“As is proverbially relevant, ‘The Ends Justify the Means…’ But GOD has shown me that with Him there is no end…only beginning... My insatiability is the crux of my resolve…Yet again, I begin…

              My name is Josh Witherspoon and I hope to be your SBA SecretaryAt this stage in each of our law careers, it is not implausible to believe that some might be solely interested in their own future doing those things will favorably affect them in the future. What’s wrong with that? Nothing, I sayBut I also feel that the Student Bar Association is not only representative of the Student Body, but is the Student Body. I believe that no one can represent the Student Body, yet be interested solely in oneself at the same time.

              To me, representing the Student Body through the SBA is a privilege...None of you is without prestige, none of you is without tenacity, and none of you is without capability. You are already leaders amongst leaders and admired by those around you. Therefore, don’t presume to be your leader nor do I desire it. But I do ask that you allow me to be the engine through which your needs are met. Feel free to hold me accountable.

              Ask me what I’ve done in the last semester for you, personally. If I couldn’t answer this question, as your representative, I wouldn’t dare stand before you asking for your trust nowI stated in my first election with you that “I’m not afraid to tell you ‘I don’t know’, but I am afraid to tell you I can’t know”. My commitment to you has not changed... Words only go so far, allow me to continue showing you action. Blame it on my insatiability, but I refuse to allow us to stray from our ongoing path to excellence. Only, together, can we achieve this goal. Log on and vote today...You are the Student Bar Association…what YOU think matters most…
