Two Loyola University Maryland Student Government Association (SGA) members were elected to the National Jesuit Student Government Association’s executive board at the association’s first annual meeting at Boston College on July 26.
Ryan Blake, ’16, from Hanover, Mass., was elected secretary for academic affairs, and Christopher Singlemann, ’16, from Coram, N.Y., was elected secretary for athletic affairs. Other members of the executive board include students from Creighton University, Saint Joseph’s University, and Georgetown University.
In his position, Blake, an accounting major with a minor in information systems, will coordinate discussion across institutions at both the undergraduate and graduate level regarding issues in academic affairs and study abroad. He will also communicate with the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU) conferences of all academic deans, honors programs, and service learning directors.
Singlemann, a communications major with a specialization in advertising and digital media, will represent all student-athletes and their interests. He will also coordinate programming efforts among student representatives regarding athletic events across institutions and work with athletic administrations of the AJCU schools on student-athlete policy matters.
At Loyola, Blake is currently vice president of student advocacy for SGA. He previously served as the director of academic affairs. Singlemann is starting his term as the director of public relations, and was previously the executor of Loyola’s student advisory athletic committee constitution.
As part of the AJCU, the National Jesuit Student Government Association serves as an advocate and a voice for the 28 Jesuit colleges and universities across the country.
