SEE WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO
Last Sunday, May 4, 2014, was the second annual SWE End of the Year Brunch. The brunch's purpose is to take a nice break from finals, enjoy a nice meal with fellow members, and commemorate notable members of the organization. The event gives the members a recap of the year and a reminder of all the hard work and great accomplishments made.
The event was beautifully planned by the 2013-2014 executive members and was held in the notorious Montpelier Room at James Madison University. Present were National SWE members Colleen Layman (who generously helped sponsored the event) and Mary Perkinson. Members of all different graduating classes were there, five who are graduating this coming Saturday.
The event included a slideshow displaying photos from all the events held this year. Photos included group pictures taken at the Region E Conference at Virginia Tech, to engaging action shots during the EYH Conference in Memorial Hall. The food served was deliciously cooked breakfast food: fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, breakfast sausage, biscuits, and herb potatoes. The room was filled with chatter and laughter.
The executive members started by recapping the year. It was mentioned that this past year was the year that SWE held the most events, which is a great step forward! This past year also consisted of regularly-held meetings. A fun and competitive incentive for members to attend more meetings, the executive held a point system and designated a certain amount of points for each event. Melissa Bernazani and Winifred Opoku had the most amount of points, attending the most and second most amount of meetings and events, respectively. The executive board also announced the new positions for the upcoming 2014-2015 year. Senior Mallory Draeger passes her duties to former Vice President, Genna D'Antonio, who also has been with SWE back in the early roots. Towards the end, the members celebrated the graduating seniors, who will be graduating in the College of Integrated Science and Engineering this Saturday, May 10, 2014.
