Executive Board

 

Tamasi.jpg

 Chris Tamasi ‘15, President

Hey there, my name is Chris Tamasi and I am a senior English major here at Amherst College. I live in Canton, MA—a suburb just south of Boston and previously attended Xaverian Brothers High School. I am a proud member of the football team and President of the Student Athlete Advisory Committee. I am also an Athletics Liaison, working to create a sustainable culture of community engagement within the Athletics Department. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my “little brother" from Big Brothers Big Sisters, playing piano, and writing poetry.  If you have any questions about the Athletics Department, Center for Community Engagement, or want to learn more about the SAAC, please feel free to shoot me an email at ctamasi15@amherst.edu

 Thomas Gilligan ‘16, Secretary & Treasurer

Hey! My name is Thomas Gilligan and I’m a junior Men’s lacrosse player here at Amherst College. I am from Edina, Minnesota, a suburb of Minneapolis, where I played lacrosse in the springtime and hibernated for most of the winter. Besides being the SAAC secretary, I am also in the Investment club. When I am not playing lacrosse or in the library, I enjoy playing golf, listening to music, and cheering on my fellow student-athletes at their games. I am one of the facilitators for the SAAC Publicity and Spirit committee and would love to know if you have any ideas to spread some Lord Jeff spirit around campus! Go Jeffs! tgilligan16@amherst.edu

 Katherine Britt ‘15, NESCAC Representative

 Hello from Amherst! I am Katherine Britt, a senior Neuroscience major and a member of the women’s golf team. I am from Arlington, Massachusetts (a suburb of Boston) and played golf all through high school on the men’s golf team. In addition to being one of Amherst’s NESCAC SAAC representatives, I also am a member of Amherst Leads and I work as an Admissions Office assistant. When I am not on the course or in the lab, I like spending time outside, belting out pop songs (typically out of tune) with friends and teammates, and enjoying art to stay cultured. I am one of the facilitators of the SAAC Publicity and Spirit committee and would love to hear from you! Email me anytime! kbritt15@amherst.edu

 Stephanie Ternullo ‘15, NESCAC Representative

 Hi! My name is Stephanie Ternullo and I am a senior from Connecticut.  I am a member of the Amherst Women's Varsity Swim Team where I swim mid-distance and distance freestyle.  My favorite events, however, are relays, because the intensity level is always increased and it's so much fun to race with a group of people rather than against them!  Outside of the pool, I am an Economics major, but I am also very interested in Sociology and Spanish.  I'm really excited to work with other athletes in the Amherst SAAC and on the Campus Relations committee this year!  sternullo15@amherst.edu
