Paige Atchley, a 2010 graduate of Soddy Daisy High School, was elected vice president of the University of Tennessee Student Government Association on Friday.
Paige is the daughter of Lori and Greg Atchley of Hixson. She is a junior at UTK majoring in marketing with a communication minor.
Paige is a Global Leader Scholar, president of Impact, a member of Chi Omega Sorority, active in the student alumni association, and employed by the Alumni Association at UTK.
She ran as a team with Jake Baker, who was elected president.
Baker told the Tennessee Journalist, "It is absolutely unreal that Paige and I got elected. We started five months after anyone else and spent thousands and thousands of dollars less, and we seriously thought we were the longshot campaign.
"We joked that we were 'the little campaign that could,' but we did it."
Baker received 1,923 votes while runner-up Christian Powers of Engage had 1,473, and Amplify's Lindsey Lee got 1,446.
Paige Atchley had 1,802 votes to 1,576 for runner-up Laura Burgin of Engage and 1,473 for Cole Liles of Amplify.
