Co-President: Gabby Kim 

Cedar Park, TX

Hey y’all! I’m Gabby, and I’m one of the Co-Presidents for the Class of 2021 this spring! I’m from Cedar Park, TX (and also from Hanover, NH) and I’m a government & environmental science double major. I just got back from a semester “abroad” at Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Science where I explored the role of ~nutrient limitation~ in our oceans. Outside of SGA, I sing in Mediocre Acapella, dance in Colby Dancers, and am an OL and a Data Co-Chair for Colby’s Planned Parenthood Generation Action! This winter break, I sold out and binged the entirety of the Office for the first time ever, and am honestly not sure how to feel about it. I’m very excited to help improve our campus culture and community this semester and am looking forward to a great year!

Senator: Ryan Bedell

Rye Brook, NY

What’s up, guys?!  My name is Ryan Bedell and I am from the one square mile town of Rye Brook, New York. I am a Government major and a Managerial Economics and Environmental Studies double minor. Outside of SGA, I am a part of the Men’s Swim Team, Captain of the Water Polo Team, and a COOT Leader. I also volunteer at the Waterville YMCA acting as a mentor to high school students. In my free time, I love walking from heights all the way to AC because I couldn’t live in a dorm that is further away. I am excited to bring a new perspective to SGA and to see what this year brings.
