VP of Community Outreach
Hello! I’m Connor and I’m a third year Computer Science undergrad student. Before being the VP of Community Outreach, I was the Media Chair. I grew up in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. I am on the Mines club volleyball team. I love video games, cats and getting to know new people! Send me your favorite meme.
Lanie Breckenridge (she/her/hers or they/them/theirs)
Howdy, y’all! I’m Lanie and I’m from Colorado Springs. I am a sophomore majoring in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering with a humanitarian engineering minor in Community Development. I like dogs and watching snowfall and gushing over my wonderful girlfriend up in CSU and many more things but I’d need more space to write them all. I work in a couple of research groups and intend to join Peace Corps out of college. I love to chat so say hi if you see me around!
Kat Bailey (she/her/hers)
Howdy! I’m Kat. I’m a second year Chemical Engineering Major with the Biological Track and I’m in the McBride Honors Program. I’m originally from Bakersfield, California which is very flat and hot and polluted. SO! I really love being here in Colorado. I love to go hiking when I can. I also love to cook and bake in my free time because I finally have access to a kitchen. Also I love playing board games very very very much. I’m social chair for oSTEM this year and I’m also involved in the Mines marching band and concert band. If any of y’all want to talk about anything, feel free to virtually visit my office hours. 🙂
Malcolm Johnston (he/him/his or they/them/theirs)
I’m Malcolm Johnston, and I’m a third-year Chemistry student who is also trying to get a minor in the McBride Honors Program. I was born in Boise, Idaho, but moved to Fort Collins, Colorado when I was seven (thanks, recession). While I’m new to the position, I served as Philanthropy chair in FIJI, so I’d like to think I have some idea of what I’m doing. I’m the middle child, with an older brother also attending this school and a younger brother in high school. Feel free to talk to me about writing, books, history, video games, or chemistry!
Penny Rose Scharf (she/her/hers)
Hello! Penny. Third year. Comp Sci. Colorado native. That’s me. Now for the interesting part! I was the historian of FIJI and the treasurer of Improv Club, that was cool. I also really like graphic design, making Discord bots, playing video games, making and then running TTRPGs, and making the occasional trash fire– I mean… film. Sure. Am I good at any of these things? Who cares! But I sure do put a lot of effort into ’em. And that is… cool.
