The MEGSO Executive Board
Pay no attention to the committee behind the curtain.
President - Edgar Mendoza
El Presidente - the one in charge of making sure your Grad Student needs are met. Shoot him an email if you've got any questions about MEGSO or the CMU experience. Be prepared for a lengthy sidebar about the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Vice President - Nick Jones
With the charisma of Biden and the dead, empty eyes of Pence, Nick is here to make sure this machine runs smoothly. When Edgar can't answer your emails, he's the one to call. Also the resident webmaster and committee wrangler.
