JT Baker ’21, who was disqualified from the student trustee race, would have won the position had he stayed in the race. He will fill a vacant spot on the Cornell Board of Trustees alongside Jaewon Sim ’21, the undergraduate trustee-elect, for the next two years starting July.
It’s the beginning of a new school year, and there is much to be celebrated. From launching the College of Business to welcoming a whole slew of top-level administrators, Ithaca is teeming with new and exciting changes. This year, we welcome Cornellians in the class of 2020, and trust that they will continue to pioneer the innovative and progressive energy that infiltrates Cornell. Like the class of 2020, this year marks a welcoming change for me too. This year, I begin my journey as the graduate student-elected trustee.
