Kansas State University students elect Kiehl, Pitts as student body president, vice president

Submitted by Communications and Marketing

For the first time, Kansas State University students have elected two female students to the top two student government leadership positions in the same year.

Jordan Kiehl, senior in industrial engineering, Fairway, will serve as student body president and Lacy Pitts, junior in agricultural economics, Moundridge, as student body vice president. 

"It means so much to be elected and we owe it all to the students who believed in the purpose behind us and our platforms," Kiehl said. "We would not have been able to do it if it wasn’t for their encouragement and incredible support. While elections are over, the real work has just started. We are excited to begin working for and with students on our campaign initiatives, but also on the other issues students see on our campus in order to truly enhance the student experience for all students."

Kiehl and Pitts will take office in April and plan to continue their work on their three platforms — affordability, access and accountability.

"Getting elected by the student body was an extremely gratifying experience, and we are so lucky to have the support of our friends and family," Pitts said "The work Jordan and I put into developing platforms was well spent and we can't wait to get started on bringing positive change to K-State and addressing the needs of students."

Currently, Kiehl is the chief of staff and Pitts is a senator for the College of Agriculture for the Student Governing Association.
