The largest number of student government presidents ever assembled at an AIPAC Policy Conference have joined national and state leaders of the College Democrats of America and College Republican National Committee to demonstrate their support for the U.S.-Israel alliance.
The 242 elected student leaders, known as the Geller Student Government Association Presidents, hail from all 50 states, and most of them are attending their first AIPAC Policy Conference. Their campuses include Idaho State University, Dartmouth University, University of Mississippi, Florida International University, College of Charleston, University of Alaska and Washington University in Saint Louis.
This year, 30 of the Geller SGA Presidents come from Historically Black Colleges and Universities, 23 from Christian-centered campuses and 12 from primarily Hispanic-serving institutions.
These young leaders gathered for a banquet dinner on Saturday night to hear an inspiring presentation by AIPAC National Council member and program sponsor Marty Geller, as well as brief remarks by South Carolina State Representative Bakari Sellers, a former Morehouse College SGA president attending his sixth Policy Conference.
