As the outgoing Co-President of the Campus Activities Board, it is my pleasure to announce to the campus the 2013-2014 CAB Co-Presidents: Grace Balfanz and Jenny Marquette! There is no doubt in my mind that the two of them will take the board to new heights next year as they have both proved to be strong leaders in their past years on CAB. They both truly embody to spirit and mission of the Campus Activities Board and have a dedication to the development of the executives in their personal and professional lives.
Grace will be a senior secondary education and math double major. This will be her second year as president on CAB, but her third year on the Executive Board (she was the Recreation executive as a sophomore) and hopes to use her love for seeing people develop really shine through with the new executives on this board. Grace is really gifted at building relationships and making people feel comfortable and valued – both on the board and at events.
Jenny will be a junior communication studies major. She served the board as a Co-Special Events executive last year. Jenny is a very skilled event planner that is bursting with creativity and ideas to enrich the board and will be a phenomenal mentor to the new executives. She showed potential for being a strong asset to this board even as a first-year on the Special Events committee, so we are excited to see what she will do!
Please join me in congratulating these two ladies next time you see them on campus! I could not be more proud to pass the torch to them.
