University of Vermont



Officers 2008-2009


Chancellor: Lisa Harris  (Fall '08 - Censor)

My name is Lisa Harris and I am part of UVM’s class of 2010. I am an environmental studies major with a social anthropology minor. For the Fall 2008-Spring 2009 academic year I am very interested in being the Censor for Alpha Zeta. I believe I would be a good candidate for the position because I am dedicated to all activities I participate in, am very organized, and like to be creative in my thinking. I have been very involved on campus over the past two years, working for organizations like Eco-Reps and UVM Hillel, and am also a member of the sorority Alpha Delta Pi. Alpha Delta Pi has taught me leadership and communication skills as well as given me the opportunity to do service work for our national philanthropy, the Ronald McDonald House. As an environmental studies major I have found my career interest to be in non-profit environmental work. During the summer I intern for a non-profit ocean advocacy group called Clean Ocean Action based off Sandy Hook, New Jersey where I am from. This type of organization is what I am passionate about and I hope after I graduate to be able to pursue a career in. By being the Censor I believe I will bring interesting ideas, my passion for community work, and overall a big smile to Alpha Zeta Fraternity.   


Censor: Vanessa Patten  (Fall '08 - Treasurer)

My name is Vanessa Patten. I am from Mont Vernon, a small town in southern New Hampshire.  I am currently a sophomore animal science student with a pre-veterinary concentration. I hope to attend veterinary school upon graduation and someday practice as a small animal veterinarian. My interests include running track and cross country for UVM, working as a part-time veterinary technician, hiking and being outdoors. I would love to hold the office of Scribe for Alpha Zeta because I hope to become more active in the campus community. I have held similar positions such as secretary of the National Honor Society chapter and choir at my high school.  I am interested in assisting with events in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and in the off-campus community. I consider myself to be outgoing, organized and motivated and will bring all of these qualities to this position! 


Scribe: Marlow Duffy

     My name is Marlow Duffy and I am currently a junior here at UVM majoring in Community and International Development with a double major in Dietetics.  I am a member of the Equestrian Team and the Honors College.  I also participate on CALS REPS, and play intramural broomball.  My ultimate career goal is to help fight obesity in the United States, and foster sustainable community practices among residents of wherever I end up living and working.  Most importantly, I wish to enjoy the path I end up traveling along, and live each day to the fullest! I would love to be an active member of Alpha Zeta and hold the office of Scribe.  I am very organized, pay attention to detail, love interacting with people, and wish to be a liaison between Alpha Zeta members and officers.  Being a scribe is not merely attending office meetings and hanging up flyers for events, but entails interacting with each and every member of Alpha Zeta, listening to their concerns and suggestions, and making positive differences that will enhance everyone's experience in Alpha Zeta.


Treasurer: Jared Alvord (spring '09)


Chronicler: Derrek Eckhardt

My name is Derrek Eckhardt. I am a Junior majoring in Sustainable Landscape Horticulture in Plant and Soil Science.


Chancellor: Dana Notte
 (Fall '08)
     I am currently a senior from Rutland, VT majoring in Dietetics and Nutrition and Food Science. I will graduate in December of 2008 and begin graduate school at the University of Vermont in the fall of 2009 to complete my dietetic internship and masters degree. When my education is complete I want to venture into the community and work for a non-profit organization that promotes nutrition education and awareness. I have interned with Vermont Department of Health WIC Program, the Campaign to End Childhood Hunger Cooking for Life program, and conduct my own undergraduate research. All of these experiences have furthered my interest in the subject and made me even more aware of the nutritional issues our country faces. I am very passionate about what I am studying and very interested in working to improve the nutritional status of our society.
     Officer Position: I am interested in re-running for the position of Censor. I am honest, organized, reliable, and most importantly hardworking. I think that I have demonstrated this well over the past year as Alpha Zeta Censor and I would like to continue to work hard for this group, our school, and our community. I think that our group can do a lot of great things to benefit the community and I would love to be involved in the organization and execution of those events. I would appreciate your vote for the position of Censor and should I be re-elected I promise to continue representing the group and our school to the best of my ability.


Advisor: Mark Starrett
