Mary-Madison is the President of HCSA for the 2015-2016 academic year and a rising senior in the Honors College. She hails from Tyler, Texas, and is studying Nursing and Honors Humanities.
Welcome back! As the Honors College Student Association president, I am very excited to see how HCSA will serve our community this coming year! Because of successes from previous years, our team hopes to continue HCSA’s traditions as well as provide new events. I have already heard the brainstorming beginnings of possible events among the cabinet and committees.
This year, our cabinet is equipped with both organization and enthusiasm. With Lydia Flynn as Vice President, Chloe McLaughlin as Chaplain, Larisa Kuehn as Secretary, and myself as President, we bring individual competences that buffer each other’s weaknesses. I am thrilled to be working with women dedicated to their position and, more importantly, dedicated to God.
Committee chairs and members are each devoted to building community within the HC through unique avenues: academic functions, service projects, social events, and spiritual gatherings. Due to the hard constitutional work of last year’s HCSA, I am happy to announce the committee chairs for this year!
Academic Committee Chair: Janice Murray
Service Committee Chair: Charlie Hurlocker
Social Committee Chair: Dani George
Spiritual Committee Chair & Chaplain: Chloe McLaughlin
We have an incredible team. As Paul hoped for in Philippians 2:2-3, I pray that we may “complete [our] joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind…[doing] nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility counting others more significant than [our]selves.” I hope for like-mindedness among the members of HCSA, that we may encourage the JWHC community to participate more deeply in the love of Christ.
Finally, I would ask for every JWHC member to please pray for our team. Please pray that we may be equipped with heart, soul, and mind to love and glorify God individually in our positions and communally as a student organization.
Soli Deo honor et gloria.
