New Blood Elected to Alumni Executive Board
Pi Lam has a proud history of sadistic and unfulfilling rituals, but none more grueling than officer elections, which were held at this year’s Kovner Banquet. Imagine a roomful of alumni whose primary concern is who’s buying the next cocktail. Now, ask them to listen to speeches and exercise their decision-making capacity… you see the problem here, right?
In spite of alcohol-induced apathy, votes were cast (though some brothers contend they were only raising their hands to order another round) and two new brothers were selected to join the ranks of the alumni association executive board.
Congratulations to Donny “Boss” Hoegg ‘12 and Malcolm McMillan ‘13, who will serve as president and secretary, respectively. In spite of a spirited challenge by Bob “I am not a crook” Pennock ‘11, the incumbent vice president, Ryan Overturf ‘07, will continue to serve for another term. And although Bob Arthur ‘96 admittedly has difficulty performing basic math computations without using his fingers and toes, he ran unopposed as Treasurer.
Both new officers are young alumni and products of the chapter revitalization in 2009. Malcolm was a re-founding father from the fall 2009 pledge class, and Donny pledged the following semester. But like good pledges, what they lack in experience, we expect they promise to make up for in blind servitude.
Thanks to our outgoing officers for six years of service
Here are a few of the notable accomplishments of the alumni association since 2007 under the leadership of former officers, Mike Naegele ‘89 and Shawn Mahoney ’91:
Best of luck to the new E-Board!
