Hello everyone,

It is my pleasure and honor to be the president of Alpha Gamma Sigma this year. I believe this honor society will bring you as many opportunities and leadership experience as I had have in the past. One of my most memorable time with AGS was attending the socials and events because I had the opportunity to meet very brilliant people who had similar goals as me and love volunteering. I met most of my best friends here, and I hope you will too. As your president, I am confident that AGS will become the best part of your stay at PCC for we have many big events waiting for you to cherish with us.

Misses: 7 o'clock classes, arrogance, ignorance, and TV.
Most Memorable ΑΓΣ Experience: Wow! Where to start!?! I suppose that two of the most outstanding experiences I had would have to be being voted member of the month in October and attending the Fall Banquet last semester. I was so excited when I was nominated for member of the month that I remember calling my mom and a whole bunch of my friends right after the planning meeting while literally jumping with joy. As for the banquet, it was just a great way to end the semester, being there with some of my closest friends and the hardest working people I know. To end the semester being surrounded by people like that simply served to affirm my conviction in the boundless capabilities of humanity when our hearts are open and we unite for a common purpose. Go AGS!!!
What I Do in AGS: My primary responsibility lies in running the largest AGS event, Blast-A-Scholar. In conjunction with this duty I lead the Internal VP Committee (which, incidentally, is exceedingly fun *hint*hint*), run meetings when our illustrious President is indisposed, take charge of an event here and there, and help out in any way I can!
