Meet Our Governing Board

The Governing Board directs and oversees the Honors activities that happen on and off campus.  These activities might include films, speakers, discussion groups, field trips, special campus events, and community service projects.  Nine members are chosen to comprise the Board – 3 Seniors, 3 Juniors, and 3 Sophomores. 

Abby Cryan

Abby CryanI am currently studying Biochemistry and am attending graduate school in the Fall of 2012.  I have been an active member of the Honors Program since my freshman year.  I have traveled to several honors conferences and have helped introduce many changes to the program, including increasing participation and making the program more valuable to our students. 

Brittany Boyce

Brittany BoyceI am a senior Natural Science major with a specialization in Forensic Science.  I have been in the Honors Program since my freshman year.  I have also been fortunate to travel to multiple locations for conferences.  This has allowed me the opportunity to get to know many of my professors on a one to one level, and enhance my overall experience at Daemen College.

Kadie Horton

Kadie HortonI am a senior in the Nursing program, attending classes both at Daemen and Trocaire.  I have been in the Honors Program for four years and have seen the program through some of its most expansive and exciting changes.  I have overseen the development of the points systems and have watched as the program doubled in attendance.

Annie Skrobacz

Annie SkrobaczI am a junior in the Physician Assistant Program.  I joined the Honors Program as a freshmen and this was a great way to become involved with Daemen College.  Not only do I have the opportunity to get to know my professors better when working on various Honors Projects, but I also developed great friendships on the many club outings with other Honors members.

Cameron Garrity

Cameron GarrityI'm a third year Graphic Design major with a minor in Theater.  I have been involved in the Honors Program since I was a Freshman and have loved every minute of it.  The program has allowed me to collaborate with students from different departments, present my school work around the country, and develop strong relationships with my professors on campus.  

Hannah Okel 

Hannah OkelI'm in my third year in the Physician Assistant upper division program. The Honors Program doesn't just pad your resume. By contracting classes of my choice I have been able to venture deeper into areas of my interest, including the influence of nature versus nurture in a child's upbringing, the anatomical occurrences in hearing impairment, and more!

Amanda Smith

Amanda SmithThis is my first semester being on the Governing Board. I am a Sophomore in the Physician's Assistant program.  So far, the Honors Program has been a great experience offering many opportunities that I would not have been able to experience if I was not in the program. It is a great way to create relationships with friends and faculty on campus.

Caitlin Scheeler

Caitlin ScheelerI am a sophomore Physician Assistant student with a minor in Psychology. This is my second year in the Honor's Program, and I have completed half of my projects.  I have been on the Governing Board for about a year, now.  I am one of the three Governing Board members who over-sees the Media Group, promoting the Program throughout Daemen's campus. 

Thomas Wilkie

Thomas WilkieI am a sophomore, majoring in English and Spanish.  What I have enjoyed about the Honors Program is the opportunity to meet people outside of my major that I would not have met otherwise.  I have also had the opportunity to travel to the National Honors Conference in Phoenix, Arizona.  Taking away knowledge from that event has helped me better our program.
