Erika Hinman ‘13 & Keith Love ‘13
Hello Class of 2013! This spring we, Erika Hinman and Keith Love, are running for the positions of Class Presidents. After spending freshman year discussing our student government intentions and spearheading a rebel army against The Ninja, we feel we can lead the rising sophomore class in SGA and in our ongoing endeavors, be they class dinners or study breaks.
To start with a few introductions, Keith Love is a graduate of Hopkinton High School in the exotic, tropical land of Hopkinton, Mass. a suburb half an hour outside of Boston. In high school, Keith spent his senior year as class treasurer, vice-president of the National Honor Society and tri-captain of the soccer, winter and spring track teams. Additionally, Keith has five years of experience serving on the board of directors for the Vernal Pool Association, a nonprofit environmental outreach group. Now at Colby, Keith is a member of the newly founded EcoRep Program and the track team. Combined with his love for dancing like no one is watching, walking barefoot on the beach, being spontaneous, catching snowflakes, cuddling and anything mango, he is ready to take on the challenges and responsibilities of class president.
Erika Hinman graduated from Hastings High School located in Westchester, NY, a suburb four hours outside of Boston. During her senior year, Erika was the senior class representative to the student government. Erika also played varsity field hockey for four years and captained her junior and senior year teams. Along with sports, Erika was also very involved in high school musical ensembles, playing the trumpet for the band and jazz band. She was once invited to play with the Philharmonic, but could not attend as the concert fell on her mother's birthday; Erika places a high priority on family. Erika was also a proud member of National Honor society and Model UN. At Colby, Erika is a member of the field hockey team, a mentor for CCAK and a participant in CCOR. Erika's responsible and committed nature, combined with her abilities to bro out, live with the flow, shred gnar and grow out the lettuce, will be exercised throughout her presidency.
As class presidents, we will increase communications between the student body and SGA, implementing monthly questionnaires available to the student body. We would be in place to make decisions for the class and to represent the opinions of the bicentennial student body; thus, our focus will lie heavily in integrating class participation in the Colby student government. We will continue the discourse regarding room draw as we further the improvements of the current system. As both of us have great experience in planning, organizing and executing our ideas, we will also implement more study breaks and further class unity.
Thank you very much and we look forward to earning your votes throughout our environmentally friendly campaign. Look for our recycled flyers around campus!
