MSE Ph.D. Student Narayan Shirolkar to Head Graduate Student Government Association
As the school year ends, so do the leadership terms for Georgia Tech’s Student Government Association (SGA). Students voted for new leadership in April, and SGA recently inducted those who were elected.
Narayan Shirolkar, a Ph.D. student in materials science and engineering, and Aroua Gharbi, a Ph.D. student in computational science and engineering will helm the graduate SGA presidency and vice presidency, respectively. Pooja Juvekar, a third-year industrial engineering major, and Haigh Agnell, a third-year economics major, will fill the same roles for the undergraduate SGA.
Narayan and Aroua have previous experience in SGA’s executive branch. This past year, Narayan was the vice president of Graduate Conference Funds, and Aroua was the vice president of Graduate Life. Together, this gives them a shared background of working to improve graduate student life from both academic and student life perspectives.
Pooja and Haigh have been involved in SGA since their first year at Tech, both in the legislative and executive branches. They had an unspoken understanding that if they ever ran for leadership positions, it would be together.
