Junior Kelly Logan, College of Education and Human Services Senator, has been elected as the Student Government secretary.
Logan is majoring in middle-level education with a concentration in math and science.
She is aiming to have a career as a middle school teacher somewhere in New York, Pennsylvania or Virginia.
The 21-year-old from Media, Pennsylvania, has been a part of Student Government for two years. Logan was asked to take part in Student Government without original interest, but then found herself loving it.
For her current position, she had the opportunity to choose the new dean. She also meets with the dean a couple times a month as well as sitting in on teacher education council meetings in which she gets to help decide what goes on the curriculum.
“It’s a lot of meeting new people and sitting on the board of a lot of things. It’s really fun,” Logan said.
While Logan is away from Student Government, she is also a part of the women’s track-and-field team as a javelin thrower. Other clubs she is a part of include Circle-K, the technology committee, Tau Kappa and she is the outdoor track-and-field representative and Make-A-Wish committee co-chair for the Student Athlete Advisory Committee.
She is also a big sister in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.
“Secretary was the perfect fit for me. I like to observe more,” Logan said.
When she begins the secretary position, she will be responsible for taking minutes for meetings, be in charge of the public relations committee and also host different events on campus like holiday dinners.
Logan’s new position as secretary will take effect on Thursday.
She would like to see a lot more equality on campus as secretary, as well as more communication.
“I get extraordinary opportunities I never thought I would have,” Logan said.
