Hunter Smith

Jesup, GA

Born to two University of Georgia students in their third year, Hunter is ecstatic to return to his true home and pursue his passions at UGA. After graduating, Hunter's parents returned to their hometown of Jesup to raise him and his two younger siblings. As a young child he was intrinsically curious and sought knowledge and truth in every aspect of life. After the death of his father in 2007, Hunter turned to Student Government, an activity he had been involved in since the third grade, as an outlet to express himself. Acting on the desire to leave a legacy of kindness and service to his fellow students, Hunter sought leadership roles throughout middle and high school, eventually becoming Student Body President. He is currently pursuing a major Political Science, minors in Sociology and Student Affairs, and aspires to gain his law degree and master's in public administration. He seeks to give back and help create a more inclusive UGA through mentoring and helps Freshman students find their outlet in Athens. He dreams of working in state politics as a state's attorney, representative or senator, or Governor. In doing so he wishes to give the greatest gift to his constituents, a life dedicated in service to others and the belief that governments are of the people, by the people, and for all people.
