Fredericton, N.B. – STUSU President, Brianna Workman, was recently named Chair of the New Brunswick Student Alliance (NBSA). The outgoing Vice-President Education was elected as STUSU President on March 2 during the STUSU’s spring General Election. During her time as Vice-President Education, Workman also served as Vice-Chair of the NBSA.

“I am also excited to work alongside STUSU Vice-President Education, Emma Walsh, and the rest of the NBSA Board of Directors in this capacity as Chair,” said Workman. “I truly believe that the work the NBSA does for STU students and its other members is some of the most essential and valuable work that we put forth on behalf of our students.”

In recent years, the NBSA’s advocacy has resulted in a wide array of successes for their members. This includes the introduction of the Free Tuition Program and Tuition Relief for the Middle Class, Medicare coverage for international students, and investments in youth employment and experiential learning.

NBSA Executive Director Emily Blue also commented on the election.

“Brianna has already established herself as an integral member of the Board of Directors given her previous experience as Vice-Chair. We are delighted to see that the STUSU has yet again taken a leadership role within the NBSA and I am really looking forward to working under Brianna's direction,” said Blue.

Workman’s new role as Chair marks the first time that a STUSU delegate to the NBSA has served in this capacity.
