By The Mercury

Eli Schooley was elected president of Kansas State University’s student body in voting that concluded Wednesday.

Schooley and running-mate Jake Unruh received 2,352 votes, about 60 percent of the total cast. They defeated the team of Kyle Nuss for president and Ariel Mendiola for vice president, which received 1,529 votes.

Schooley and Unruh ran on a platform that included improving wireless access on campus, improving student webmail services and installing charging stations for computers.

They will succeed current president Nate Spriggs and vice president Grant Hill.

The total vote count was 3,881 ballots cast, a number that was up about 22 percent from the 2012 election result.
