Daniel Romary was appointed to a two-year term on the Purdue Board of Trustees in July 2017 by Gov. Eric Holcomb. He is a Master’s student in biomedical engineering, having obtained his Bachelor’s from Purdue in the same discipline in May 2018, with highest distinction. His thesis research is focused in cardiovascular imaging and tissue engineering.

Romary is a native of northeast Indiana, where he graduated as valedictorian of New Haven High School in 2014. He has always been passionate about serving others, and has continued this pursuit through his extracurricular involvements at Purdue. During his undergraduate years, Romary was heavily involved in Purdue Student Government, where he served as a director of strategic planning and assessment, a senator for the College of Engineering, and the student body secretary. During his tenure, he worked to expand mental health resources on campus, acted as a liaison between Purdue Student Government and Purdue Dining & Catering, and served on various committees with students, faculty and administrators. He was also a member of Purdue Foundation Student Board and the Barbara Cook Chapter of Mortar Board senior honor society.  Currently, he is an active parishioner at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church in West Lafayette, where he regularly serves as a lector and was previously a small group leader on the semi-annual Boiler Awakening retreat.

Romary is a Charles C. Chappelle Fellow, was named the 2018 G.A. Ross Outstanding Senior Man, and has consistently been named to the Dean’s List.  He also received Biomedical Engineering’s Charles Wayne Sullivan Outstanding Sophomore Award in 2016.  

After graduation, he hopes to attend medical school and eventually practice surgery.
