SGA candidates for 2023

Election April 6-7

IV Leader Staff

Several candidates are running unopposed for seats on IVCC’s Student Government Association.

Voting will be from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, April 6 and Friday, April 7.

Student Trustee

Libby Boyles

From Princeton, Boyles is 18 and a graduate of Princeton High School. She is majoring in Finance.

Reason for Running
I am already an active participant in Student Government on the Freshman Programming Board. I enjoy getting the opportunity to be a voice for the students. I am running in hopes to further my participation by sitting in on monthly board meetings and being an even bigger  voice for the students in front of the Board of Trustees. I feel that being an active participant as Student Trustee will give our entire SGA, therefore the entire student body, the opportunity to be informed all around.

Election Goals
My goal is to stay active in all meetings as an advocate for the student body. I will continue to seek the opinions of my peers and help bring light to even the littlest things at the college that could make for positive changes for the students.


Daniel Sack

Sack, 25, lives in Walnut and graduated from Hall High School. He is majoring in Accounting.

Reason for Running
I am seeking a presidential office to represent my community whereby I will use my bilingual skills and diverse background to make changes to positively impact our learning community.

Election Goals
I will build an interactive community calendar to increase student engagement in academic, social, and community events. 

Vice President

Drew Knipper

From Princeton and majoring in Foreign Language (Spanish), Knipper, 19, is a graduate of Princeton High School.

Reason for Running
I am seeking the office of Vice President because I believe the IVCC SGA needs strong leaders who are willing to step up to get things done. I also believe I would be a good representative for students by voicing their opinions to the IVCC administration.

Election Goals

Firstly, ensuring the student body is heard and knows how to get their voice heard. As most students attend IVCC for two years, they often do not know how to make a change, suggest an idea, or even run for a position in Student Government. My goal is to inform students on how to do these things. Second, I want to focus on is to offer more student activities to make the college atmosphere more welcoming. This might include tournaments, games, debates, etc


Riker Fesperman

From La Salle, Fesperman is 17 and majoring in Social Studies. He graduated from St. Bede Academy.

Reason for Running
I wish to serve the student body and bring my experience to student government.

Election Goals 
I seek to better the college experience for all students by listening to their concerns and bringing them to the SGA. I believe in IVCC and wish it to be an inclusive and welcoming space for all people. I pledge to be open and willing to listen to all students.


Katie Bates

From Princeton, Bates, 19, is a graduate of Princeton High School. She is majoring in Secondary Education – Mathematics.

Reason for Running
I am seeking office to be a voice for the student body, and I want to be a part of improving student opportunities and activities.

Election Goals
My goal is to improve student life at IVCC and create more options for students to participate in.
