NEW LEADERSHIP: DARWIN MLACHILA & LONDON LEE
Last month, our previous president, Janet, stepped down from her position. Because Pitt NSBE follows
Robert's Rules of Order, VP Darwin Mlachila became our new president. An election was held at a Town Hall
meeting, and general body members elected senior, London Lee to become our new vice president! London is
a mechanical engineering student who has been a member of NSBE since she was a freshman and is hoping to
make the organization just as exciting for incoming freshmen as it was for her. She has also been the region's
End Zone Coordinator, so she is a great person to talk to if you're interested in NSBE leadership!

FRESHMAN REPRESENTATIVE APPLICATIONS OPEN UNTIL 10/1


Pitt NSBE is in search of three wonderful freshmen to serve as our Freshman Shadowing Initiatives
Chairpersons! This is a rotational position that will allow freshmen looking to become involved in NSBE
leadership gain experience and find their strengths on the board. Apply at bit.ly/fsiapp
