Mission of Student Senate
Meet the Senators
Student Senate President Senior Biology, Pre-Med Major
My favorite thing about being on Student Senate is getting the opportunity to work with various students, faculty, staff, and administration. It is great for everyone to come together to make Blackburn a better place! I ran for Student Senate because I care so much about Blackburn and I wanted the chance to make a profound impact on behalf of students.
Vice President & Jewell Hall Rep Freshman Medical Laboratory Science Major
My favorite thing about being a part of student senate is that I get to voice not only my opinion and concerns, but also other students opinions and concerns! I love that everyone has a voice here at Blackburn! I ran for student senate because I wanted to get involved and become aware of what the students do and help determine here on campus!
Treasurer & At-Large Rep Sophomore Biology, Pre-Med Major
I am currently the Vice-President of the Pre-Health Professions club, and an Emergency Room Medical Scribe. On campus I work for Dr. Bray in the biology department as a teaching assistant and tutor, helping Botany and Bio 100 students. I have served three semesters on Senate as the Treasurer thus far and I would like to serve many more. Being a representative on the Senate gives me the opportunity to branch out and talk to students of different interests, become active in solving issues presented to the Senate, and gives me a chance to make a positive impact on the Blackburn Community.
Secretary & At-Large Rep Senior Biology Major
My favorite thing about senate is having the honor of giving the student body a voice, and making connections with students, faculty, and staff across campus. I ran for senate because I wanted to be able to represent the student body and make a positive impact on the time we have at Blackburn.
- At-Large Representatives:
At-Large Representative Junior Psychology Major
My favorite thing about student senate is that we have a hand in planning events. I ran for student senate to have a leadership position under my belt, to see how the student government worked, but most importantly it seemed to be a lack of diversity in senate with two diverse students out of ten. I also joined to show that no matter if you’re a minority you can always rise up and compete with the majority.
At-Large Representative Sophomore Elementary Education Major
My favorite thing about Student Senate is working with the other senators as a team, with many different viewpoints, to help solve major problems that come to our attention. I ran for Student Senate because someone told me about it and I thought it sounded like a great way to get involved with decisions made on campus.

- Commuter Representatives:
Brandon Lewis Jr.
Commuter Representative Junior Organizational Leadership Major
My favorite thing about student senate is the involvement with the campus community. I ran for student senate because I was encouraged by one of the senate members. If it wasn’t for Deja Luckett I would not have the courage to do so. Being the representative student for the commuter students, I understand the amount of involvement we have with the campus and I want to increase that involvement.
Christopher C. miller
Commuter Representative Senior Pre-Med Major
My favorite thing about student senate is the to work closely with other students. I ran for student senate because I want to make a positive impact on campus.
- Residence Hall Representatives:
Jones Hall Representative Junior Biology Major
I joined Student Senate through an opening in my dorm. I did not actually have intentions of joining when I did, but I took the opportunity and actually really enjoy it. Now I am considering running for at large representative next year. My favorite part about Senate is getting to hear the different ideas of people I don’t normally see on campus. I enjoy getting to discuss the different issues and topics happening on campus and really feeling like I have a voice.
Challacombe (North) Hall Representative Freshman
Stoddard Hall Representative Sophomore
Butler Hall Representative
Graham Hall Representative
Dr. Mark Armstrong
Faculty Adviser Professor of Chemistry
My favorite thing about Student Senate is how passionate, responsible, and hard-working the Senators are. I was delighted to become an Adviser when I was asked to.
Staff Adviser Director of Student Engagement & Resident Director of Jewell
My favorite thing about Student Senate is seeing students grow and find their voice, they don’t always know what they are going to learn being a part of Student Senate, but I hope they get something valuable. Student governance is one of my favorite things to be a part of. As an undergraduate I was in student government and i love to be able to give back to similar communities.
