Written by Bwog Staff
This week, Bwog will be featuring candidates for leadership of the Columbia College class of 2010. Tools? Visionaries? You decide–vote next Tuesday!
President, Party: Mark Modesitt, Alma Matters
Hometown: Evansville, Indiana
Home Dorm: John Jay
The man: I am from Indiana where corn and cows are more abundant than people. My floormates often kid me about my Midwestern accent, but overall, I am an outgoing, well-rounded guy. I am an Eagle Scout, stay active by running and swimming, and enjoy nature as much as I enjoy the city. My most treasured experiences have definitely stemmed from by involvement in Student Government. My prior leadership positions have included Class President, Youth Mayor of Evansville (IN), high school representative on Senator Evan Bayh’s Youth Council, and Student Council State Vice-President.
The plan: There are many ideas I plan to implement that I believe will enrich our first year here. First and foremost, I want to set up an efficient Class Council that will serve as an effective means of communication and networking for the Columbia College Class of 2010. In addition, I would like to add new programming components to the Freshman Class Council while maintaining continued programs such as the Grandfather and Father Class functions and the Winter Formal. I hope to be able to unite our class and promote a positive atmosphere for inter- and intra-class interaction.
Historical figure with whom he most identifies: Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Ice cream flavor with whom he most identifies: My friends say I should be bubble gum because I’m a little goofy, but I would want to be Mint Mint Chocolate Chocolate Chip because I’m cool like that.
