Taylor is a Junior at Tulane and a new member of our congress class this semester. He has been an incredible helping hand in all events that our chapter has had this semester. We love hanging out with Taylor and love to learn new things about him everyday. We are so proud of his talent, skill, and passion especially towards PAD
He is always helping out his brothers in any way he can and is a great leader as well. We are thankful to have him in our brotherhood and can’t wait to see his future accomplishments this upcoming year! Congratulations on Taylor on being brother of the month.
Tonight, we held elections for our new executive board. Each candidate presented a three minute speech on why they believe they would be the most qualified for their position and the brotherhood then voted on each candidate. Congratulations to our new executive board!
President - Alex Keiser
Vice President - Sharmila Mysore
Secretary - Wendy Cohen
Treasurer - Nicole Roca
Also, a huge thank you to our previous executive board!
Caroline is a Junior from California. She joined PAD Spring 2018 and currently serves as the Community Engagement Liaison. Last semester, she was abroad in Madrid, but even while abroad she stayed involved in our organization!
She has been described by her brothers as someone who genuinely cares about the other members of our organization. One member stated, "She has been there for many people in the chapter and is always a friendly face to see around campus." Congratulations, Caroline!
“Energetic”, “Caring” & “Positive”
Congratulations to our brother of the month for January, Kelly Ross! Kelly has been described by her peers as someone that truly cares for her brothers. She is always a friend that brothers can go to for a good laugh. This semester, Kelly is the Public Relations Assistant, and she’s worked incredibly hard creating new material.
“Kind” & “Selfless”
Congratulations to Lindsay Nissenbaum on making brother of the month! Lindsay served as one of the New Member Liaisons last semester and is currently our Community Engagement Liaison and one of our Transition Team members. Our brothers admire you for your dedication to this organization and your constant willingness to help. Keep being awesome!
Last night, to end the semester, we held a banquet in the Josephine Louise Ballroom on campus. We told our brothers to wear their best cocktail attire as we rolled out the red carpet for this We decorated the room with PAD memorabilia, including the PAD crest, PAD letter flag, and the PAD banner we made earlier this semester. We had food catered from Rouses, ranging from Baked Mac and Cheese to Chicken Alfredo Pasta, and a selection of desserts such as cupcakes and cookies. We initiated eight numbers into our fraternity last night. We informed them of what their responsibilities as brothers and about the history of PAD as they then proceeded to sign the scroll of our chapter.
Next, we had a very heartfelt video put together by Celina Sokol, one of our Membership Chairs, that featured photos and videos from this semester. We also had several of our abroad brothers, including Wendy Cohen, Alex Freedman, Maya Fromm, and Nicole Roca send in videos about how their adventures abroad have been. We can’t wait for them to come back next semester! Even some of our alumni, including past Membership Chair Zach Benson, past President Armando Marin, and past Vice President Brandi Doyal! It was so nice to see their faces again!
Our evening concluded with the PADwards Ceremony. We asked brothers to nominate other brothers for different superlatives. A few example are PAD Superstar, Most PAD Spirit, Fashion King and Fashion Queen, Most Likely to be a Supreme Court Justice, and many others! Then, we took the Top 5 Nominations and allowed brothers to vote on whomever they thought was the best fit! It was an amazing ceremony and we had some very deserving winners!
Thank you all for a great semester! We have enjoyed it so much. See you all Spring 2019!
