MEET THE BOARD

WINSTON ARDOIN

THIBODAUX, LA | SFS | EXECUTIVE CHAIR

Winston studies study Regional and Comparative Studies with a focus on Latin America and Africa and a minor in Spanish. Outside of SCC, you can catch Winston involved with mentorship programs such as New Student Orientation and the Cornerstone Initiative. He also works with GUSA and is a member of Blue & Gray.

This year, I hope to adapt much our programming to virtual platforms and expand our partnerships within the student body and greater Georgetown community to give seniors, those in DC and those wherever they may call home a memorable experience.

ALYSSA KARDOS

MORENO VALLEY, CA | NHS | AUCTION CHAIR

Alyssa is a Global Health major in the NHS with a minor in theology. Throughout her time at Georgetown, she has been involved in the IRC, Georgetown Farmers’ Market, and NSO. In her free time, she loves watching trashy reality tv shows with friends, going to Roosevelt Island, and chilling on the lawn.

My hope for our class is that we use this last year to grow closer to friends we love and build new relationships that will last long after our time in college.

JULIET FITZPATRICK

LARCHMONT, NY | SFS | EVENTS CO-CHAIR

Juliet is in the School of Foreign Service studying Culture and Politics. She has been involved with the Hoya Hub, Georgetown Global Consulting, and GU Eating Society on campus. She served as the Concerts Chair for GPB, bringing Jay Sean and Jesse McCartney. She loves exploring DC whenever possible!

I hope the senior class is able to come together even stronger amid this pandemic. These are not the events we thought we would be planning, but I think we can all find solidarity to make the best of a bad situation. My goal is to engage with as many seniors as possible through multiple mediums.

MIMI FRANCIS

POWDER SPRINGS, GA | MSB | EVENTS CO-CHAIR

Mimi is a senior who is still trying to figure out life. She can be quite sarcastic but it always comes with love. Although she sleeps during most of her down time, she loves binge watching TV, painting, and doing hair. She is also on the board of GAMBLE and a member of the Hoya Blue Diamonds.

My goal for the the class of 2021’s senior year is to be inclusive and make sure everyone feels welcome. Despite, everything going on in the world, my hope is that everyone is able to make memories and look back on their senior year with a smile.

STACIE HARTMAN

NEW BEDFORD, MA | SFS | EVENTS CO-CHAIR

Stacie studies international politics, economics, and Spanish. At Georgetown, she is the chair of the GU Institute of Politics Student Leadership Council, a consultant in Hilltop Consultants, and the secretary of Higher Education Advocacy in GUSA. She likes to sing, go to the beach, and cheer on all Boston sports teams.

My hope for the senior class is that we can become even more connected and build an even stronger bond through the common challenge we are facing in this COVID-19 world. I see this as an opportunity to build deeper relationships and never take for granted any of our time at Georgetown.

SOPHIE CHEN

WELLESLEY, MA | COL | FINANCE CHAIR

Sophie is studying Classics with a minor in psychology. Outside of SCC, she is a lead instructor at Yates and loves to travel and learn new languages. When at home in Massachusetts, she loves spending time on the cape or hiking in the Berkshires with her friends.

I’m excited to help the Class of 2021 maximize our senior year by budgeting as many fun events as possible. COVID has made it hard for us to be with one another on campus, but I hope that we can strengthen the relationship between seniors in a virtual or distanced manner.

ONREI JOSH LADAO

SAN DIEGO, CA | COL | MARKETING CHAIR

Onrei is double-majoring in art and sociology with a minor in film and media studies. Outside of the SCC, he is involved with the student board for the Georgetown Scholars Program, Club Filipino, and the Asian Pacific Islander Leadership Forum. He also works at the Center for Multicultural Equity & Access. His favorite pastimes include eating food and lamenting being single.

This year will definitely be one to remember (for better or worse) and I hope that the SCC can, at the very least, do its very best to make sure each and every senior feels valued and seen for the hard work that they have put into their Georgetown career!

As Senior Ball Chair I hope to provide an inclusive and memorable Senior Ball. I hope to promote a feeling of belonging and school spirit throughout the entire class. As for every event this year, the more people we have attending and enjoying, the better everyone’s experience will be.

HAYLEY GRANDE

ORANGE, CT | MSB | SENIOR PARENTS AND FAMILY WEEKEND CHAIR

Haley enjoys running, cooking, listening to podcasts, and trying new things!

My goal is to connect parents and families with their senior’s final year at Georgetown. I hope to help create an environment where parents and families can make meaningful, positive, and lasting memories of their student’s Georgetown experience, regardless of the circumstances.
