Justin Ketterman, Candidate for Online Student Senator

If you are reading this it’s probably because you care very much about the future of UIS.  You want someone who is passionate and willing to work for the students, not just receive recognition for themselves.  You want someone who is committed, has a proven track record of success, and has the initiative to go out there and do more.

Passion, initiative, and commitment – there are qualities that UIS has instilled in me.  Last year I exercised these qualities by introducing resolutions and ideas that are the foundation for bigger and better changes at UIS.  My big goal last year was to create an online forum for students to help fill the communication gap that existed among the student body.  It passed and was a tremendous success for the online program.  I gained the experience and knowledge to quickly tackle objectives and move ideas forward in SGA.

This year, I plan to keep building on what I worked on last year.  Communication is still a huge barrier in the online program.  Along with other projects that were started last year, there is still a lot of work to be done.  As the representative for online students, I can finish the work that’s been set in motion and fight for student’s matters that will create huge, positive impacts on the student body.  If you’re willing to join me on this journey, I am confident that we will improve UIS and end up in an even better place than it is today.
