JACKSON -The Mississippi Federation of College Republicans hosted their annual State Convention at The University of Southern Mississippi Saturday and Ridgeland resident Evan Alvarez was unanimously elected chairman of the group.

"I look forward to a great year of promoting our organization and the Republican Party as a whole," said MFCR Chairman, Evan Alvarez.  "The main reason I am a Republican is because in 1959, my father came to America to escape the communist leadership of Castro.  They knew America was the land of opportunity, freedom, and liberty."

The MFCR members discussed ways to grow and make their organization stronger in the coming year.  The guest speaker for the convention was CRNC National Chair, Alex Smith. 

The delegates elected their State Board for the 2014-2015 school year.  Officers for 2014-2015 are as follows: Chairman, Evan Alvarez;

Vice-Chairman, Caroline Collins; Treasurer, Emily McDermott; Executive Director, Kolby Busby; and Secretary, Eric Bennett.  District 2 Deputy Chairman, Jessica Carr; District 3 Deputy Chairman, Turner Bridgeforth; and District 4 Deputy Chairman, Gardner Hewes.
