Class President : KIM, Kwang Hwi (Jeollabuk-do Provincial Government)

If you meet with our class president, you might be surprised when he called your name. Once he was appointed as a class leader, it has been added his to-do list to memorize all the students’ faces and names he met. He has been working as a government official for 20 years. Studying in KDI School itself is a great opportunity and thrill to him. And now he even more motivated by becoming a class president, his school life can not just be calm and bounded inside the textbooks. 

He is now focusing on composing the well-organized student committee, which will become a mediator between students and school. The new student committee is expected to be full of active movements. From early twenties to late forties, they are all ready to hear your voice and to derive the most optimal solutions among concerned parties. 2006 1st School Field Day on April 7 will be the first official event arranged by the committee. They will spend their time and efforts into it by saving their time during studying and solving problem sets. With reporter’s point of view, they are all students like the other students. So if we all become supporters for our student committee, rather judging whether they can successfully operate the event and how well they represent us. Then the event will become fully of ours, the student committee will accomplish the best solutions how difficult it is under support of all students.
Let’s be KDI Students, like let’s be the Reds in 2002.

Let’s be KDI Students.


MBA : KIM, Young Ki (People Consulting)

He is the one of youngest powers in the student committee, but you better not misjudge him as just a young MBA representative.

Evening MBA : CHUNG, Seong Kyu (Korea Cyber Payment)
