Grayson Palmer ‘11 & Annie Warner ‘11
Class of 2011: our senior year is almost here, and, like you, we couldn't be more excited. Right now, it's time to start thinking about who you want to represent our class, implement your ideas, and organize an unforgettable last year at Colby College. We are Grayson Palmer and Annie Warner. We have both been members of the Student Programming Board since freshman year, and last year, we served as chairs of the Sports and Leisure and Social Events committees. We organized and decorated for dances, concerts, sporting events, and other social functions. Our combined programming experience makes us confident that we have what it takes to be the Class of 2011 Presidents.
We are both actively involved on the Colby campus. In addition to serving as mentors for Colby Cares About Kids, we are both currently members of the Junior Class Council, where we have had firsthand experience understanding what the job of Class President entails. Senior Class Presidents fulfill a unique and important role. As organizers of senior week, pub nights, class dinners, the senior Halloween party and other class activities, senior representatives must be exceptionally committed. Our enthusiasm and dedication promise to go above and beyond--and what's more, sharing the office of President means that we have double the experience, double the passion and commitment, and double the time to make all of this possible.
We also have a number of individual experiences and qualifications that make us a unique team. Annie has experience with the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid, giving tours toprospective students. Grayson works in Colby's Scheduling Office, coordinating events on campus. Both positions offer a distinct perspective on Colby College and have helped us to focus our vision of exactly what we want our senior year to look like--and what it takes to achieve that vision.
Of course, the office of Class President means more than planning and implementing social events. While working on the Student Programming Board, we have familiarized ourselves with crucial details, including budget management and knowledge of the key contacts and different departments involved in planning activities. We have also forged relationships with many student groups, including the Pugh Community Board and the Student Government Association.
Both of us have loved our time at Colby and have come to view the class of 2011 as much more than classmates; rather, we see all of you as fellow seniors, as friends, and even as family. For this reason, we want to do our part to ensure that everyone in our class enjoys our last year at Colby. We will make this possible by organizing a diverse array of social functions, while maintaining Colby traditions. We will represent you in student government meetings and promise to make sure your voices are heard. We love you, class of 2011, so show us some love too and vote Annie and Grayson for senior Class Presidents!
