May 2006


First, congratulations and best wishes to the Class of 2006.

I would like to extend a special thank you to outgoing GBSA President Andrea McDonald for her leadership this past year.  Some of her many accomplishments include: opening the doors to the new student lounge, implementing an improved financial system for student clubs, restructuring the GBSA constitution and by-laws and hosting some really fun and memorable events.

The incoming board and I would like to also thank Alison Shields, Sam Harpold, Rachel Walker, Jim Armour and Eric Matson for their commitment to the GBSA executive board and for preparing us to build upon the solid foundation they have built this past year. We will miss you next year, but we know that you will make us proud as Weatherhead alumni.

It is my privilege to introduce the 2006-2007 GBSA executive board:

Christina Heinrich- VP Student and Academic Affairs
Andy Male- VP of Finance
Christina Freeman- VP of Student Organizations
Rishi Darda- VP of Communications
Matt Evans- VP of Cultural and Social Affairs

We are your representatives and look forward to serving you next year. Our goals include the following:

  • Build professional and civic relationships in the Greater Cleveland community
  • Implement the student code of conduct and increase the role of the Student Learning Management Committee (SLMC)
  • Improve communication between all stakeholders (students, faculty, administration, staff and alumni)

These are lofty, but attainable goals, and we will need everyone’s involvement to ensure our success. We look forward to a year filled with fun activities, academic success, career and professional development, and an even greater Weatherhead community. Enjoy the summer and see you in August.
