Lao takes charge of organization

Andrew Thagard | Tuesday, January 20, 2004

The Campus Life Council (CLC) reconvened Monday for its first meeting after Christmas break, led by new chairman and student body president Jeremy Lao, who replaced the now graduated Pat Hallahan.

“I really look forward to working with you all this semester,” Lao said at the start of the meeting. “I really firmly believe it [CLC] is one of the most important committees [within student government].”

Lao challenged members to use the council to its full potential.

“In the past few years, I don’t think CLC has been fully utilized,” he said. “I’ll do my best to bring topics to the agenda.”

Emily Chin, formerly the chief of staff, replaced Lao in the position of vice president, and her former post was filled by senior Patrick Corker.

Liam Magee also joined the CLC as a new member and representative from the Diversity Council.

CLC plans to host a social gathering in the coming weeks to provide an opportunity for the members to better get to know each other.
