Biel also hopes to achieve the feat of encouraging the class of 2024 to achieve the highest graduation rate possible.
When Biel learned of his new position, he stated, "During the announcements, I did not know that I would win at first.

Once I heard my name, I was shocked. After realizing this and letting everything sink in, I proceeded to feel honored."
