Kite and Key Society members last week elected College junior Stephanie Newman as their new president and filled 10 other posts for 1992. Society members also elected College junior Michael Gross to be vice president, College junior Doug Hodis as secretary and College junior Michelle Fink as treasurer. Newman and her new board will take their posts in January. The new president, who was tours coordinator this year, said last night she is excited for next year. She is impressed with her board and said "everyone expressed great ideas in their speeches." And Newman said she wants to increase the sense of community within Kite and Key next year, making every aspect of the group more accessible to all members. "I want to have each member have more of a voice," Newman said. "I want to be very open to any ideas that members have." Newman, who defeated three Society members to get her new position, said the new board will work very well together. Current Kite and Key President Barbi Lewis said yesterday the biggest issue facing next year's executives will be to get a handle on the Society's recent growth in activities. College senior Lewis said members will need to "maintain the areas of growth that Kite and Key has evolved and to find new ways to stay involved in the community and on campus." Lewis added that she was impressed with the way the candidates handled their campaigns and the election, noting it as a good sign for the way they will work together next year. The other elected members are College junior Stephanie Fish as alumni relations coordinator, Wharton sophomore Marc Tarquinio as female hosting coordinator, Nursing sophomore Elisa Katz as male hosting coordinator, College junior Deborah James as tour guide coordinator, Wharton sophomore Peter Wang as on- and off-campus recruiting coordinator, College sophomore Deborah Roberts as special projects coordinator and College freshman Lauren Stein as Step-One tutoring coordinator.Comments powered by Disqus
