Chief of Staff

Derek Arnold

Hi! My name is Derek Arnold, and I serve as the Chief of Staff for the 2017-2018 Student Government Board. I’m originally from Altoona, PA, but love calling the city of Pittsburgh my second home. I’m a huge reader – Harry Potter being my absolute favorite series – and love to binge watch shows on Netflix. If I’m not reading or watching Netflix, you can usually find me checking out all of Pittsburgh’s awesome restaurants and culture scenes. I’m beyond thrilled for the opportunity to work with SGB and the student body, so please feel free to contact me with anything you may need!
