Caitlin Buist, Vice-President of Administration
Caitlin originally chose King’s because she was given the opportunity to be a part of the Women’s Volleyball team. Other aspects of King’s that she appreciated was the small, tight knit community as well as the ability to develop her faith along with her education. She specifically chose business because it was a degree that would be applicable and practical in many aspects of life. In her 4th year, she has joined the LBA as the VP administration with a desire to give back to the Leder School of Business and to be more involved in the King’s community.
Lucile Maniraguha, Vice-President Internal
Lucile chose to come to King’s to get a business education that went beyond making a profit. Not only did she choose to go into business out of interest for the marketing field, she also chose it because it would allow her to understand what would go into building her clothing line one day. She values the importance of involvement. This is why she chose to be part of the LBA in order to contribute to her business community.
Charlotte Niemand, First Year Representative
Charlotte chose The King’s University for the amazing Leder School of Business, the small classes, and the vibe of community. She is in her first year of university and is loving every minute of it. Her plan in the business world is to go into advertisement. She wants to make a difference through the advertising industry. One value that Charlotte holds dearly is her faith. The fact that King’s could offer an education with Christianity incorporated in it was just calling for a student loan. King’s has not failed to show it’s potential.
York Dudiak, First Year Representative
York is a first year student at The King’s University. York went into business to get a foundation for his goal of studying corporate law, and eventually starting his own firm. He chose King’s for the small classes, great professors, and friendly community. He is really excited to be a part of the LBA team!
