The Freshman class elected the Freshman Class Council on Friday, October 6. As part of the Student Government Association (SGA), this class council is there to support the freshman class, to celebrate each other’s stories, engage in meaningful relationships, and ultimately experience the transformative grace of God.
The newly elected President of the Freshman class, Joseph Cataldi, commented “I am happy to be President because I feel great love and passion for ENC and its environment. The President is responsible for the effective management of the class council and he will meet regularly with the Executive President of the SGA. Cataldi’s goal is to “generate great school spirit, pride, and excitement for events.”
The new Vice President of the Freshman Class is Shawn Kerry. The 18-year-old Finance Major enjoys having this leadership role, stating that he wants to “bring the Freshman Class closer together” and let everyone be heard. Kerry explained how he would like to “organize fundraisers or big meetings where every Freshman can bring in their ideas.” A large portion of the role of Vice President is to manage the finances of the Freshman class. On this, however, Kerry says that he first needs to “figure out what the financial goal of the Freshman class would be.”
