Club Members step up to serve!

Sorry for the delay people! We’re in the thick of semester, and the schoolwork is pouring in. Despite all of our obligations (school, work, family), you all still make an effort to contribute. That was illustrated during our last meeting Feb. 17. We talked during the meeting about Spring Fling coming up, and how we would like to have some club visibility at that event. So four of our members volunteered to work the club’s table at Spring Fling.

A big thank you goes to Vice Chair Gregg Mosley,  Secretary LaToya Matthews-Tripp, Club Member Jenny Stovall and Club Member Brittany Bynum, who is now a full, dues-paid member! We’ll see you at Spring Fling.

Additionally, Congrats to Brittany Bynum, who is also the club’s new Student Government Representative. And a congrats to LaToya Matthews-Tripp for taking on the role of newswoman.

We appreciate their willingness to step up and serve!

Also, be on the lookout for the club’s board, which club members Maury Smith and Jenny Stovall have been diligently working on! It’s in the lounge area on the Health Sciences campus. A big thank you to both!

And a special acknowledgment goes to our Department Head Tony Porrett who is a member of the club, paying his dues earlier this year.

See y’all at the next meeting March 24 @ 5 p.m.
