Student Senate Spotlight – Grace Rogers

Meet the person behind the position! Student Senate Spotlight is a fun way for us to showcase our members of Senate and for you to get to know them a little better! As we get closer to the end of the semester, I will begin posting two spotlights per week. This week in the Spotlight:
