Zachary Sullivan ‘13
Hometown: Moline, Illinois

In March, University of Illinois Springfield student Zachary Sullivan was elected governor of the statewide Model Illinois Government (MIG) organization. MIG puts on a government simulation for over 300 college students each year at the state capitol. As a non-traditional student, Sullivan transferred to UIS after graduating from Blackhawk College in Moline. He chose UIS because of its location in the state capital and the hands-on experience it provides to students studying state government.
