President:

Molloy Sheehan: mbs3xz@virginia.edu
4th year in the Curry School of Education, majoring in Kinesiology

President Sheehan is from Lon Gisland, New York where she discovered her favorite color is turquoise and once had this "pretty gnarly pogo stick accident, thankfully that didn't hinder [her] career of useless talents because [she] still rock[s] the hulahoop and unicycle." When asked where the worst place to get stuck is she responded that "anyone who has seen Frozen (the 2010 version with real people) knows the answer to that question." Furthermore, Molloy would not have a yacht, because she would be too busy hanging out with "those guys from shark week."

Molloy's slogan is currently under negotiation with Shakira (circa 2007).

 

Vice President of Snowboarding:

Helena "PrincessLaney48" Groves: hig8gn@virginia.edu
4th year in the College of Arts and Cratfs, majoring in Anthropology and American Studies

Vice President Groves' favorite color is pitch black (like her soul) and her favorite scar is the "gut-wrenching pain of being way too full after eating some delicious BBQ. It's a pain of delight." If she had a yacht she would name it "something cheesy like "Makin' Waves" or "When This Boat's A-Rockin' Don't Come A-Knockin'." But let's be real, she'll never have a yacht. When asked which city should be removed from a map of the United States she responded, "Charlotte, NC. I hear that place is a dump. And that people from there smell."

Helena's slogan is: "Vote for me, I'll get yer shit dun!"

 

Vice President of Skiing:

Peter Gregrowski: pzg5sj@virginia.edu
3rd year in the College of Arts and Cratfs, majoring in Computer Science and Economics

 Vice President Gregrowski's favorite color is a classic: Neon Reddish Aquamarine. For those of you that don't remember this color of your childhood, it can be found between Atomic Tangerine and Wild Blue Yonder in your Crayola box. Peter doesn't have any scars because "how can you have scars when you are so flawless you never get hurt?" And while this is currently true of the ski Veep he does imagine his ultimate downfall will involve slowly sinking into a giant vat of honey, or possibly peanut butter. Before that day comes though he will often be located on his yacht, the "There Dooley, I Answered All of Your Questions. Now Leave Me Alone", or the "TDIAAYQNLMA" for short. Peter would also like to acknowledge that the rest of the world might like us more if we stopped advertising New Jersey as being part of the United States.

Peter's slogan is: "Yeah... not really sure why you guys want me to do this... but sure, why not?"

 

Treasurer:

Emily Pierce: eep6bm@virginia.edu
4th year in the College of Arts and Sciences, majoring in Human Biology

Treasurer Pierce's favorite color is Blue, with a capital B. She would name her yacht "99 Problems" and one of them would be finding where she docked her boat, seeing as she would remove the entire state of Delaware from a map of the United States.

Pierce would also like it to be known that she doesn't classify her scars by "favorite" and "not-favorite," but she still has some. Also the worst place for her to be stuck would be in a mental hospital.

Emily's slogan is: "Just do it."

 

Secretary:

Alex Botlo: akb2mb@virginia.edu

 Secretary Botlo is busy filling your inboxes with delightful messages and can currently not be reached for comment.

 

Women's Snowboard Captain:

Tania Awalegaonkar: taa6yc@virginia.edu
4th year in the School of Engineering and Applied Science, majoring in Biomedical Engineering

Captain Awalegaonkar believes that all colors should be treated equally and will not discriminate any of them by choosing a favorite. However, she has decided to disclose that she does love Asian food. As far as scars go there was that one time that she tore her hammy, but we don't talk about that. We'd much rather talk about the time she dropped her Christian's face down and then continued to eat it. She would like to make a formal apology to the avacado slice. You were good to her and she let you down. She really is quite sorry. Another thing she is sorry about is Newark, New Jersey, and, like VP Peter, she thinks we could do without it on a map of the United States.

Tania's slogan is: "Are you a fun sucker? Are you a commie? Have you ever tried O'Doul's, or even thought about it? If you answered no to all of these questions, vote for me because I dont suck as a human being."

 

Women's Ski Captain:

Hallie Pence: hmp9yh@virginia.edu
3rd year in the College of Arts and Sciences, majoring in Government and Philosophy, with a minor in Buddhism

 For starters Captain Pence would like it to be known that her first name is pronounced "Hal-lee, not Hail-lee." After that she believes in "equal love for all the colors of the rainbow" and is a big supporter of the "streak the lawn" tradition. In fact, she was so excited to complete this activity that she broke her foot streaking the lawn on her first night at college. Upon graduation she anticipates naming her first yacht "Gin-erosity," but is still taking suggestions of names for the rest of her fleet.

Hallie's slogan is: "I'm all about that inner zen yo!"

 

Men's Snowboard Captain:

Ben Pickus: bap4db@virginia.edu
Professional Mexican Jumping Bean

Ben likes squirrels.

 

Men's Ski Captain:

Nick Kwan: nk4ea@virginia.edu
4th year in the McIntire School of Commerce

Captain Kwan is partial to blue and orange #gohoos, and you probably should be too. His favorite scar is "that fun one from hitting a tree at practice." Admittedly though, "It's always tough navigating the treacherous terrain of Wintergreen." Even this though is nothing compared to the scar that would be left if he was stuck in girls rush. On a happier note, Nick is going to name his boat Jenny, because it's the most beautiful name in the world after all.

Nick's slogan is: "A vote for me is a vote for something fun and different."
