First African-American students to serve as UHD student body president and vice president

Shenaedra "Shay" Tatum was officially inaugurated as the first black female Student Government Association president. She and Jason Lillie are the first African-American duo to serve as president and vice-president. 

Both are non-traditional students and will provide a voice for many of UHD's older students, including those that are parents.

The university was recently ranked number 7 among colleges and universities that help adults return to school.
