Silver Lake College student Robert Pauly of St. Cloud, Wis., has been appointed to the position of President of the Lakers Legislation student government for the first semester of the 2015-2016 academic year.
Pauly, who previously served as vice president, replaces Justin Mrotek, who graduated earlier this month.
“I look forward to it, but I’m also humbled by it,” said Pauly, who plans to meet with students in fall to determine their needs and to build the organization around addressing those needs.
The Lakers Legislation is “a communication link between the student body and administration,” with a twofold purpose, he said.
“First, it is to bring student concerns to the faculty, staff and administration,” Pauly said. And, second, student government leaders can help the college create a solution that is easily applied and adaptable, he said.
Pauly plans to graduate in December 2015 with majors in theology and history.
The executive leadership team also includes Jonathan Billingslea, treasurer, and Amanda Giacobbe, secretary. The position of vice president remains unfilled.
The student government organization will hold Town Hall meetings during the school year. It also will communicate through its Facebook page (Silver Lake College Student Government-Lakers Legislation) as well as campus bulletin boards, the college’s course management system (Joule), or through student email (LakerLink).
