College sophomore Natalie Hernandez resigned as Undergraduate Assembly Secretary on Sunday afternoon. Hernandez will still serve as a College representative.

Hernandez said that she is stepping down so she can focus on academics. In an email to the UA informing them of her decision, she stated that acting as UA secretary has been a rewarding experience but that her first priority is academics.

As secretary, Hernandez was expected to oversee administrative duties for the UA’s weekly general body and Steering meetings, as well as attend executive board and Cabinet meetings, serve as a liaison from one of the UA’s four committees to the executive board and plan bonding events for the UA general body .
