As the 2022 calendar year came to a close, we held our last general body meeting. We would like to extend a huge congratulations to our new officers and thank all the candidates who ran for their hard work and dedication to the club. We have no doubt that they will do an excellent job leading the club and we look forward to the new ideas and energy they will bring. Thank you to everyone who participated in the election process, whether by running for office, supporting a candidate, or casting a vote. Your involvement is what makes the club such a vibrant and active community.
We would also like to extend a huge thank you to our previous officers for their service to the club. Their hard work and dedication over the past year has been invaluable and we are grateful for all that they have done.
Congratulations to our new President, Kenny Nguyen, and new Vice President, Kian Pierce!
And now a few words from our new President Kenny Nguyen:
As we begin the kickoff to the start of our 2023 Spring semester, I would like to introduce myself to the folks I never got the honor to meet yet. My name is Kenny Nguyen and I am proud to be your newly elected President. I am a fourth year student studying Mechanical Engineering from Richmond, VA.
I was initiated into YACHT in Fall 2019 during my freshman year and during those years, I have been elected philanthropy chair for 2021 and vice president for 2022.
As your newly elected president, I will not only be a leader, but also be a resource for my officers and members. I have seen this organization grow tremendously and I intend to help continue growing it, so that future members can partake in the fine establishment we call YACHT. I plan on building this fraternity and making sure that our overflowing amount of ideas will be accomplished. I also plan to have opportunities for our wonderful alumni to be more incorporated with new events in the future. With that, I hope to see some familiar faces soon!
If you have any questions or concerns, my contact information is below. Please feel free to reach out to me. Thank you and Godspeed.
A few words from our new Vice President Kian Pierce:
For those I haven't had the privilege of meeting, my name is Kian Pierce and it's an honor to have been elected the Vice President of this organization which means the world to me. I'm a Junior in Electrical Engineering, raised in Richmond, VA. I spent the last year serving as Secretary of YACHT and I have a long history of leadership roles from Highschool. I'm very excited to lend my hand in the growth of YACHT this next year.
As the new VP, I intend to further solidify the bond we have as brothers. I plan to continue our traditions and implement my new ideas in an attempt to achieve this goal. My primary proposal is to broaden the variety of brotherhood events YACHT hosts. I would like to organize day trips like visits to Claytor Lake or going tubing at the New River Junction. YACHT has a strong Alumni community and I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to meet each and every man who's contributed to this organization. Come to Blacksburg very soon!
I grew up without brothers so, in every sense of the word, the YACHT boys are my brothers. That being said, for any questions, concerns, ideas, advice or if you're ever in town and want to grab a drink, shoot me a text, call, or email!
