Alex Hermann ’14 wins associated students presidential election

The 2013 Associated Students election was exciting for Beta Theta Pi as Alex Hermann '14 was elected President of the University of San Diego Associated Students for the 2013-2014 school year. He will lead the Associated Students Leadership Team whose mission is to "promote opportunities for growth and expression, address student issues, and enrich a diverse, inclusive, and engaged community."

Alex is the first Beta to be elected AS President, and in his campaign statement, he stated he was running for President to "build a bridge for future generations to cross." For Betas, this idea should sound very familiar, as it is a model found in the “Bridge Builder” poem, which is read at the very first pledge meeting and meant to instill the idea of building a lasting legacy in Beta Theta Pi.

Alex states his inspiration for leading the University of San Diego community comes from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who said, “He who is greatest among you shall be your servant.” Alex is excited at the prospect of serving the USD community next year and wants to continue living out Dr. King’s philosophy.

Congratulations again to Alex Hermann, who has started his own legacy of members of Beta Theta Pi serving the University of San Diego as student leaders. He has made his chapter incredibly proud.
