With the campaign slogan “Dream BIG,” Bobby Haddix and Caroline McKinney have won the 2014 Purdue Student Government presidential race. Current PSG president Kyle Pendergast hopes the two candidates will “represent the student population in the best way possible.”
According to President-elect Haddix, dreaming BIG (Boilermakers, Inclusion, Growth) is “having the courage to pursue your dreams no matter how crazy everyone else thinks they are.” Vice President-elect McKinney believes it is ‘having that big idea that you’re passionate about and doing whatever it takes to go after it until it’s accomplished.”
Boilermakers: Every student should have not only a college experience, but a Boilermaker experience.
Inclusion: Connecting international and domestic students, Greeks and non-Greeks, and student organizations.
Growth: as an individual, a community, and growth in representation.
Thanks to all of our supporters! I appreciate everything you all did. And it's been a great ride, met some phenomenal people. PU is amazing
