LAMONI - Karley Whelchel of Perry has been elected to the 2018-19 Graceland University House Council as Senator for Shalom.


Graceland offers a unique system that merges student government and the housing system. Each floor of the residence halls is designated as a “House” with its own name, symbol and colors. The integration of student government and the houses allows student leaders to impact the entire campus community and to plan and run programs for the house. This is accomplished by house council leaders becoming the members and decision makers in the student government organizations.


Karley and other students participating in leadership and service programs at Graceland University engage in a journey toward personal growth, social responsibility and building community by recognizing leadership potential and clarifying personal, academic and professional goals.
