Vice President of Operations

Kara BlakleyMy name is Kara Blakley, and I'm a marketing and management information systems double major, lover of all things television and movies, a die-hard St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan, and passionate about Student Government at Butler.  As Vice President of Operations for SGA, I oversee boards that help coordinate the logistics of our weekly student assembly and shuttle bus service on campus.  Participating on Operations Board allows you to assist in organizing numerous aspects of SGA, and it is a great way to be informed of various events and programs on campus. 

Outside of SGA, I am active with business organizations, volunteer work with the YMCA, and have an on-campus job.  There hasn't been a day that's gone by that I haven't loved being a Bulldog and being a part of organizations such as SGA has made it even more enjoyable.  If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions about Operations Board or even how to get more involved with SGA, please don't hesitate to contact me at SGA@butler.edu. Thanks!

Favorite Butler Memories

My favorite memories have included being in the audience for one of Jimmy Fallon's late-night show tapings in downtown Indy during Super Bowl week, seeing Trip introduced as a puppy and watching him grow up and become our third official mascot, and the basketball team's buzzer beating win against Gonzaga and enjoying all the festivities from ESPN's College Game Day.
