The Honors Student Association (HSA) held elections last week in order to elect two freshman representatives. After a ballot was sent out via email to every freshman honors student, Mason Bowes and Sara Kattan were elected.
Bowes is pursuing a double major in English and philosophy and a minor in art history. His main reason for running was to improve his leadership skills and be a voice for the honors community. Bowes said he wants to be “someone my peers can talk too” and his main goal is to be seen as approachable.
When asked how he plans to make a positive impact on his community Bowes said, “l want to be known as someone who does good for people.”
Sara Kattan is pursuing a major in biology on the pre-med track. Her main goal as a freshman representative on HSA is to cultivate her leadership skills and give back to her honors community.
“I can not express enough how significant this position is to me because I would like to contribute to such an extraordinary and outstanding program,” Kattan said.
HSA represents the students in the All-College Honors Program. They plan trips, events and other activities for members of the honors community to enjoy, a highlight being the honors banquet that occurs every spring.
In addition to two representatives from each class, the current executive board consists of President Zachary Lundy, Vice-President Anna Gullo, Secretary Erik Pawelski, Treasurer Abby Bradley and Communications Chair Lily Wozniak.
