Paul-David Steele, Director of Internal AffairsPaul-David Steele
Director of Internal Affairs

Hello there. My name is Paul-David "PD" Steele and I have the honor to serve as the Director of Internal Affairs. Prior to my current position, I served as a Delegate and as the Clerk of the Senate for one year each. Throughout my time in SGA, I have learned so much about my strengths and weaknesses, and I am very thankful for every opportunity to improve myself to be of better service to others.

As the Director of Internal Affairs, my job is to work with the Student Body President regarding legislative matters, to ensure that all legislation is up-to-date, and provide the House and Senate leaders with the resources necessary to help them lead in the most effective way possible. I pray that I can assist you to the best of my ability.


Lydia Elrod, Director of Spiritual LifeLydia Elrod
Spiritual Life Director

Hi there! My name is Lydia Elrod, I am a senior at Liberty University studying English, and I am serving as Student Government's Spiritual Life Director. I am honored to be in this position and to be a part of a very special Executive Cabinet this year. I will always be here to serve in every way that I can. Please reach out to me by email, and I will be in contact with you as soon as possible. Prayer requests are always welcome.

After graduation, I plan on continuing my education in English with hopes of becoming a professor, to support my passion for writing. I find myself writing about any and every thing that life brings my way, but that almost always lands on reflections about the goodness of my heavenly Father. I pray for these same reflections within all of SGA this year.

As representatives of the student body, and above all else, Jesus Christ, we stand to unify Liberty under the common goal of letting our lights shine for the Lord continuously. "You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden "(Matthew 5:14).
