|2010-2011 STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT ANNOUNCEMENT
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
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 be 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 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
