President: Allison Fife
Perhaps one of my defining characteristics is a passion for learning. It sounds cheesy--I know. But my love of learning has driven me to an equally great love of travel, reading, and discussion. Although my majors are History and Economics, my academic interests are varied and include business, ethics, religion, philosophy, language, gender, and political science. Basically, I love learning about the interactions we humans have with each other every day. That is one reason that participating in SAEL has been so rewarding for me: discussing relevant ethical questions has helped me to broaden my view of the world. Outside of school and my extra-curricular involvement, I like to hike, sing, dance, play the piano, and spend time with my family.
Vice President: Katrina Nieveen
I love to study the world around me through reading, discussion, work, and travel. I am particularly interested in gender roles, ethics, and religion. I also loves to spend time outdoors hiking, swimming, and camping. I'm a senior studying Accounting with a minor in Management Information Systems.
Treasurer: Liza Patterson
I am sophomore studying Accounting and Management Information Systems. I love watching TV shows (especially BBC ones with hot men in them) and going to classes! The second one is sometimes a lie, actually. I also sing, play the piano, craft, and absolutely love playing games. Other than my indoor activities, I enjoy fishing, hiking, horseback riding, and exploring the world. SAEL has given me the opportunity to better define my personal ideas of ethics, and though I still have many questions about ethics which I feel I will never come to a conclusion about, I am working on a strong foundation from which to base my answers.
Head of Marketing and PR: Zach Malcarne
I am a sophomore majoring in Marketing. I hope to dual major or minor in Watershed Science and eventually work with water technologies and sanitation advancement after graduating. When I'm not napping in the library or watching Netflix, you can find me trying to avoid hitting innocent civilians while riding my bike around campus. After originally hearing about SAEL in my freshman connections class, I found that it's an amazing place to learn and grow in my opinions and develop beliefs that were previously foreign. By becoming a member of SAEL, I have become a better member of our global society.
Secretary: Katie Matheson
I am a senior studying Business Administration and Human Resource. My entire life, I have been an avid reader; when I learned there was a club that read about topics not commonly addressed in our schooling (and that we also got to keep the books discussed), I immediately signed up. Through members of SAEL, I have also become involved with Women in Business and PBL. When I'm not participating in my clubs, doing school projects, or working, I enjoy playing lacrosse and exploring what Logan City has to offer. I will take any chance I get to see the world and believe that my travels have had an immense impact on my education.
Events Coordinator: Jolynn Carr
I am a senior studying International Business with a minor in Organizational Communication. I first joined SAEL three years ago and loved it. I took some time off to serve an LDS mission in the Philippines, but now I am back and excited to get involved again. I really enjoy learning about the perspectives of others and thinking about concepts in new ways. Other than reading, I enjoy skiing, camping, hiking, boating, or anything with a good group of friends.
Recruitment: Kelli Morrill
I am a junior majoring in history teaching and minoring in Latin. Some of my interests include watching sports, reading, traveling, and watching movies. I especially enjoy relaxing in the sun while watching a baseball game. I stumbled upon SAEL through my roommate, who invited me to attend with her. I went and loved dinner, discussion, and the prospect of receiving books. I have really enjoyed SAEL because it gives me exposure to books and topics I would not have normally chosen.
