Today is the last day of FY14, and therefore my last day as the Graduate Member Coordinator. It was truly a pleasure to serve the graduate community this past year, and I’m excited to see what the new graduate team brings next year!
With that, I am pleased to welcome the new Graduate Member Coordinator and Coordinator-Elect for FY15:
FY15 Graduate Member Coordinator (GMC): Elizabeth Gregory is a PhD candidate at Iowa State University (ISU) studying aerospace engineering. She has been involved with SWE since 2002, starting as an undergrad at the University of Kansas, then as a professional member with the Greater Salt Lake Professional Section, and finally as a committee member and chair of the Graduate Committee of ISU SWE. She has held various officer roles throughout her SWE career, as a collegiate of various sections and as treasurer of her professional section, and most recently as GMC-Elect of SWE in FY14.
FY15 Graduate Member Coordinator-Elect (GMC-Elect): Katharine Brumbaugh Gamble is a PhD student at the University of Texas at Austin, also studying aerospace engineering. She has been involved with SWE since her freshman year at Purdue University in 2006, serving various officer roles, and at UT-Austin as part of the Grad SWE program, serving as the Committee Co-Chair for two years. Katharine has also served as the Regional Conference Coordinator for the SWE Graduate team, and currently participates on the Program Development Grant committee and the Government Relations and Public Policy committee at the society level.
Please join me in welcoming Elizabeth and Katharine!
