Hello Alumni!!!

We have successfully reached the end of another year of the Psi Chapter, and it was a great one!!! This year, we completed bigger and bolder service projects, updated some of our old traditions, brought in a bunch of fresh faces, and said goodbye to some old friends!

At the end of it all, the quarter culminated in our elections for the 2018-2019 Officer Board! We even made constitutional changes to the gavel order (note the name change of  “Music Chair” to “Director of Music”) to emphasize the importance of music in our brotherhood. I am pleased to introduce to you the following outstanding brothers:

President: Tia Liu, BΤ
Vice President of Membership: Joey Auer, BΤ
Sergeant at Arms: Jacob Hambalek, BΤ
Director of Service: Harry Mitchell, BΥ
Director of Music: Emma Boone, ΒΦ
Treasurer: David Thorne, ΒΦ
Brotherhood Relations Officer: Daniel Adea, ΒΦ
Director of Brotherhood-Sisterhood Relations: Eric Wong, ΒΦ
Director of Band Activities: Christopher Qiu, ΒΦ
Secretary: Daniel Fernandez, BΥ
Alumni Relations Officer: Haley Nelson, BΥ
Historian: Justin Nguyen, BΥ
Webmaster: Erica Vellanoweth, ΒΦ

As with every year, the Psi Chapter also said goodbye to a phenomenal class of seniors. This year, we had 19 seniors graduate from Psi to move on to bigger and better things. As a senior myself, I can say earnestly that it has been an honor to be a part of this organization, and I look forward to getting involved and reading future Encores!

Moving forward, I hope you all are getting excited for Band Alumni Reunion!!! It’s an excellent chance to reconnect with the band, play your instrument again, and even pick up some cool gear! Mark your calendars for the UCLA versus Arizona football game on Saturday, October 20th, and check out the BAR article in this Encore!

It has been a pleasure working with you all this past year, and I wish everyone the best going forward. I know us alumni will all be in great hands with our newest Alumni Relations Officer, Haley Nelson!
