Greetings Fellow Penn Staters,
My name is Madeline Snyder and I’m delighted to announce that I will be fulfilling the next term as President for the Penn State York Alumni Society. I am excited to take on this new role and share my own love for Penn State with existing and future members.
I graduated from Penn State York campus in May 2012 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication, Arts and Sciences. During my four years on campus, I was very active in several clubs which include being President of Lion Ambassadors, active in THON, President of the Campus Programming Board and serving as an assistant to the Student Affairs Office during my junior and senior year. I am hoping to use my prior experience in student engagement and activity planning as a guide for recruitment of new members as well as organizing new social events for the alumni society.
My goals for the alumni society include more activities and opportunities for networking. As students of Penn State, we were always looking for opportunities to socialize, network and have fun. As alumni of Penn State, we should look for the same opportunities of socializing and networking, but also include family-friendly events as well as opportunities to grow as professionals. With an excellent group of board members comprised of individuals who have served PSYAS before, and with some fresh faces, I’m hoping that we achieve the goals of a stronger, organized alumni society.
I would like to extend a gracious thank you to William Englar for his time served as President of the Penn State York Alumni Society. His hard work, vivacious spirit and helping hand has really influenced this group, as well as myself, in terms of understanding what it means to be a proud supporter of your school and organization. Though I know we will continually see Bill attending events with that lively smile and spirited attitude, I think he deserves several applauses for his efforts working with this organization. I hope to reference him as I look to move forward in this new important role.
In closing, I am excited to meet the many members of the Penn State York Alumni Society, as well as recruit new members to our existing organization. I look forward to sharing ideas; conversations as well as time spent sharing our love for Dear Old State together. Feel free to contact me with any suggestions or comments you may have. I look forward to hearing from you.
For The Glory,
Madeline Snyder, PSU ‘12
