About Katharine

My interest in politics paired with my passion for helping people made Student Government Association an ideal organization on campus to get involved in. As a leader on campus, I serve as the liaison between students and administration. I have the responsibility to speak up as the ‘voice’ of students in issues that concern and affect them daily. More than anything, I want students to leave Houghton having the best experience possible.

I think God has put me in this position for a reason. It has prepared me as an individual to enter the world as a voice of reason and to advocate for the powerless. This new role for me on campus is teaching me discernment, determination, and patience. I’m learning what it means to integrate my faith with my profession. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for this year at Houghton.
