The King's College Announces Pam Dodge as Student Body President
Winner Of 2010-2011 Presidential Election
NEW YORK, March 23, 2010—The King’s College is pleased to announce Pam Dodge as its student body president for the 2010-2011 school year.
Dodge, a junior from Oklahoma, won 55 percent of the votes in a special run-off election after none of the three student candidates procured a majority in the initial election. 89 percent of the student body participated in the run-off, which Dodge won over sophomore Nick Dunn. She will become the college’s eighth student body president.
Dodge is pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Politics, Philosophy, and Economics and is a proud member of the House of Sojourner Truth.
She decided to attend The King’s College, she said, because it “offered an academically rigorous, idea-based education that would help me influence society for Christ.”
Since starting at King’s in the fall of 2007, Dodge has been active in the House of Truth and served from 2008-2009 as Truth’s Chamberlain, a leadership position that builds community within the House and acts as a liaison to the Office of Residence Life.
As president, Dodge will preside over The King’s Council, the student government, composed of ten House presidents. A House is a student-led, mission-driven organization composed of 35-45 students who aim to grow together spiritually, intellectually, and socially.
Dodge has also been instrumental in founding The Debate Society of The King’s College and said one of her favorite activities at King’s has been “traveling around the Northeast to compete in debate tournaments, where I've had the privilege of representing the school and using my education.”
As student body president, Dodge hopes to guide the student body through some of the college’s upcoming changes, including the hiring of a new president for the college this year. She desires to make these transitions smooth for students. She said, “Next year, I envision a student body that is pursuing excellence in every area: our walk with Christ, our academics, our community, and the way we engage New York City.”
