2014-2015 SGA Executive Officers


Marcus Frisbee
SGA President

Hello! My name is Marcus Frisbee and I am the President of your Student Government Association for the the 2014-2015 school year. I am a graduate student, working to earn my Master of Science in Education in Curriculum and Instruction. I am originally from Athens, which is a small town roughly 30 miles south of Albany.  

I served as the Comptroller and Treasurer of the SGA from 2011-2012 and 2012-2013. Those two years on the Executive Board instilled in me a great passion for service to the students of this campus. As President, I look forward to serving the student body to the best of my abilities. The Student Government on this campus is an immensely important resource for the students. It serves as the focal point for student concerns, and it is my job as President to take the concerns of the student body to the faculty, to the administration, and to communities outside our campus.  

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments about our campus, our Student Government, or anything that you feel is important, feel free to stop by the SGA Office (Barrington 213), or my office directly (Barrington 209). If you wish to schedule an appointment, I can be reached by phone at (315) 267-3285, or by e-mail at sgapres@potsdam.edu.


Scott P. Turner
SGA Vice President

My name is Scott P. Turner and I am your Student Government Association (SGA) Vice President and Speaker of the Assembly. This is my second year as Vice President and I am happy to be serving again. I am a transfer student from Morrisville State. I am a senior with a double major in creative writing and political sciences. In the past I have been the Gender and Sexuality Alliance President and Gaming Club Vice President. On our campus I also serve as the Marketing Chair of SES.

This year I am also serving as a University Representative for SUNY Student Assembly. I represent Potsdam, Plattsburgh, Fredonia, Empire and Cortland. I see SGA as a way for all students to have the ability to participate, either through the Assembly and Senate or clubs. SGA gives a voice to the students, and I am proud to help students let their voice be heard any way I can, from a policy on campus that students disagree with or even forming a new club. If you are looking to get involved on campus I always suggest joining the Assembly or joining one of our many clubs. If you don’t see clubs that you believe should be on campus feel free to come talk to me and I can help you start the process of making one.

If you have any questions stop by my office (Barrington 217) or at the main SGA Office (Barrington 213). You can also schedule an appointment with me by contacting me at my e-mail, sgavp@potsdam.edu.


Kathryn Graham

My name is Kathryn Graham and I am your SGA Treasurer.  I am a senior here at Potsdam, majoring in biology with a minor in chemistry.  I am in the BA-MST program for science education.  I am previously a music education student at Crane on violin.  I have been involved in SGA since my freshman year when I became a co-founder and Treasurer of the Harry Potter Alliance.  I have also been Vice President of the Video Gaming Club, as well as a member of many other organizations on campus. 

I feel that SGA has always been a place where students can participate through Senate and Assembly, and have their voices heard by people that have the power to make a change for the better.  I am glad that I have been given the opportunity to serve you in the treasury not only for the past year but the coming year as well.  Please never hesitate to come to the SGA office (second floor Barrington, room 213), give me a call at 315-267-2588, or e-mail me at sgatres@potsdam.edu if you have any questions or would like to know more about your Student Government Association. Lets make this a great year!



Daniel Coelho

Hail! I am Daniel Coelho, the current SGA Comptroller. I am a double major here at SUNY Potsdam in Philosophy and Biochemistry as well as a native of the Capital District.

The Student Government is a unique organization within any upper level educational system in that it allows students the opportunity to both participate in experiences with like-minded individuals through clubs already in existence as well as gain first-hand experience in managing preexisting clubs or creating one from the ground up! It is for these reasons that I ran in and ultimately accepted the vote into office. I would encourage anyone new or returning to campus to look in to the Student Government and all of the services we have to offer!

As the Comptroller my duties include dealing directly with the treasurers of each club for various purposes including advice on what avenues to pursue for their club’s funding, organization of paperwork, and pushing the club’s financial documents to the SGA Treasurer.

If you have any other questions I entreat you to either e-mail myself at sgacomp@potsdam.edu or visit the SGA Office located on the second floor of the Barrington Student Union.


Katrina Macaluso
SGA Secretary

My name is Katrina Macaluso and I am your Student Government Association Secretary for the 2014-2015 year.  I am a senior with a Spanish-Education double major.  I am a transfer student and I got here at Potsdam in the Fall of 2012.  I'm happy that I can be a part of SGA and reach out to the students.  

SGA is an important part of the SUNY system.  It's a voice for the students and a way for students to express themselves through clubs, organizations, and events that they provide for the students.  It's easy to make your voice be heard by joining a club or by joining Assembly and representing a specific group of the student body. My goal is to increase the knowledge of the students about SGA.  If you want more information you can email me at SGAsec@potsdam.edu
