PSU Greek Councils Hold Elections
By Julia Chapmans, Collegian Staff Writer
Elections for Penn State's Interfraternity Council (IFC) and Panhellenic Council were completed yesterday, allowing the councils to fill their positions for the 2007 term.
The IFC elections were held last night at the biweekly president's council meeting to fill the offices of president, executive vice president, and vice president of finance for the 2007 term.
Grant Miller of Delta Kappa Epsilon was elected 2007 president of IFC, Frank Keller of Kappa Alpha was elected executive vice president and Dan Luttner of Acacia was elected vice president of finance.
The elections had been scheduled for Nov. 14, but were pushed back to encourage competition for the top level positions, Brad Fitzpatrick, vice president of communications, said on the scheduled election day.
The Panhellenic Council held elections on Monday, Nov. 20 for all positions on the executive board, including president.
All but one of the open positions were filled, Alyse Fiori, vice president of communications, said.
"We filled all of the positions except the vice president of standards, which will now be filled by appointment," she said.
Stephanie Kender of Zeta Tau Alpha was elected 2007 Panhellenic Council president, Katy Hatfield of Kappa Alpha Theta as executive vice president, Angela Robine of Alpha Omicron Pi as vice president of programming, Kirsten Hosack of Alpha Delta Pi as vice president of membership, Stephanie Sobol of Alpha Delta Pi as vice president of finance, Megan Moran of Alpha Omicron Pi as vice president of communications, Kathleen Asklar of Gamma Phi Beta as assistant vice president of Thon and Greek Sing, and Meaghan Cappelloni of Delta Zeta as assistant vice president of homecoming and greek week.
The new officers of both greek councils will be governing for the 2007 term.
The winners of the IFC elections will be sworn in to office at the next president's council meeting, which will be held in two weeks, and will begin their duties at the start of spring semester, Ben Jabara, current IFC president, said.
The officers-elect of Panhellenic Council will be installed on Dec. 7, and will serve as the executive board for 2007, Fiori said.
