Welcoming the secular new year also means welcoming a fresh group of motivated Bradley Students into leadership at Bradley Hillel. They are enthused and eager to take the reins. The incoming student executive board consists of the following driven individuals:
as President, Ron Taxer, a sophomore television arts major from Buffalo Grove, Illinois;
as Treasurer, Samantha Newmark, a freshman accounting major from Chesterfield, Missouri;
as Vice President of Programming, Nora Cook, a sophomore psychology major from Louisville, Kentucky;
as Secretary, Mitchell Liss, a sophomore biology major from Vernon Hills, Illinois;
as Communications Vice President, Bridget Berkow, a freshman hospitality leadership major from Denver, Colorado;
as Food Manager, Nat Kahn, a junior pre-liberal arts and sciences major from Northbrook, Illinois; and,
as House Manager, Greg Adler, a junior social work major, from St. Louis, Missouri.
With the support of the board and Rabbi Daniel Bogard, Ron is looking forward to implementing new regular programing on Wednesday nights.
“I am most excited about the new semester, because we will be broadening our programs, hoping to bring more people to Hillel,” Ron commented.
But enhancing programing is not Ron’s only ambition as president.
“I also hope to work effectively with my peers, to use and combine their strengths and take Hillel to the next level.” Ron explained.
Nat is also excited to work with his peers. He wants to create a fun environment and commented, “Lets do things that will help improve our group and our social network while hanging out and getting to know each other.”
Mitchell is eager to share his strengths with an organization that is so important to him. “My position as Secretary is perfect for me because I'm always on top of things, so event information and board minutes will be quickly distributed.”
As the new semester begins, so does a fresh and exciting start for Bradley University Hillel.
