Humans Uniting for an Equal Society (HUES) congratulates the newly elected Board! All positions were up for elections. Allie Genia and Ben Schroff, both of whom served as temporary Chair and Vice Chair, respectively, for the past two months, were elected to their positions full-term, while Makayla Mainhood continues into a new term as both Secretary and Treasurer of the organization and Katie Trudell continues into a new term as Ambassador. The position of Communications Strategist is currently open, with follow-up elections to be scheduled.
