The Division of Enrollment and the Student Experience has announced Serena Ogie Evah Omo-Lamai and Kyle Rosenblum as the Senior Class Marshals for the Class of 2020. As Senior Class Marshals, Omo-Lamai and Rosenblum will represent and lead their class during Syracuse University’s 166th Commencement ceremony. Junior Emerson Womble, majoring in citizenship and civic engagement, economics and political science and minoring in Spanish in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Maxwell School, has been named Senior Class Marshal alternate.

Each year, Enrollment and the Student Experience leads the process to select two rising seniors to serve as the representatives for their class. Students are selected based on their academic achievement, campus and community involvement, and Orange spirit. In addition to leading their class at Commencement, marshals spend their senior year participating in University events and connecting with senior leaders to share their experience.

The Senior Class Marshals exemplify what it means to be Orange as well-rounded leaders who have excelled academically and co-curricularly, all while engaging on campus and beyond through research, service and leadership opportunities. Serena and Kyle will be exemplary representatives for their class,” says Colleen Bench, associate vice president in Enrollment and the Student Experience and chair of the selection committee.

Kyle RosenblumOriginally from Limerick, Pennsylvania, Rosenblum is earning a dual degree in psychology and policy studies in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Maxwell School. He is also minoring in Spanish and information management and technology in the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Information Studies, respectively.

Rosenblum is a Coronat Scholar who has earned Dean’s List honors every semester at Syracuse. As a Coronat Scholar, he is part of one of the most highly competitive programs in the College of Arts and Sciences, focused on students with outstanding intellectual curiosity, accomplishment and courage, as well as a commitment to serving others.

“I am most looking forward to forming new and strengthening existing connections throughout campus,” he says. “In my time here, I have found that each day brings opportunities to interact with new individuals vastly different from myself and that with each interaction I gain a deeper appreciation for Syracuse University and all those around me. The friends, mentors and role models that I have been so grateful to meet have emboldened me and inspired me, and I hope that through this position, I am able to have a similar impact on a campus that has given me so much.”
