Endorsement

Grand Marshal: Kyle Keraga

The Polytechnic has chosen to endorse Kyle Keraga ’15 as Grand Marshal. The Grand Marshal is the highest elected student official at RPI and serves as the head of the Student Senate. Additionally, the GM is charged with representing the entire student body and voicing their concerns to the appropriate parties. The GM, therefore, holds a great deal of responsibility in both Student Government and across the campus as a whole.
Keraga has been a passionate and dedicated member of Student Government since his freshman year, is the president of Undergraduate Council, and is the chairman of the Student Life Committee. Some of his many successes and programs coming from his time as both a senator and committee chairman, include the proposed recommendations for changes to RPI’s excuse policy, the recently passed prescription drug initiative, and the proposal for a flat-rate taxi fee for students. Keraga has consistently worked to better the lives of his fellow students, something which we believe he will continue to do into his term as GM. Read more...
