I would like to start this post by thanking Natalie and Friel. Natalie- thank you for believing in me, and for appointing me as the next president. Your help and guidance has been invaluable, and I am so honored to be chosen by you. Friel- thank you, as always, for being an unparalleled resource for UNIFI, and for always helping officers with technical issues. You are the best.
With that, I want to tell you about my vice president, Tre Goodhue. I have a vision for UNIFI, that it would be a place where good, hard discussion happens, which is where Tre comes in. Tre is a senior History major, and is one of the calmest, most organized people I know.
Tre works in the Union as a supervisor for Chats. I know him from move-in crew, and from the moment we met I knew I wanted to be friends with him- well, me and everyone else. Tre is the type of person that has no shortage of friends because he is supportive, kind, and fun to be around. He’s also one of the most intelligent people I know, and always gives his all to his classes, which I think will be a wonderful resource for UNIFI because as Tre says, those that know history are not doomed to repeat it.
That calmness, along with his passion for history, make him the ideal person to mediate discussions in the group, as well as to provide solid input to the talks. I am also putting him in charge of alumni relations, as I trust his organization and reliability to make alumni feel comfortable and welcome at events.
In summary, please welcome him as vice president and be sure to get to know him- if you don’t know how to set that meeting up, he’s always down for coffee.
