Students are an important part of our life here. Half of our vestry members are students. The Episcopal Student Association (ESA) is our official link to the university. This year we have five ESA officers and one advisor.
Erin is a junior at Purdue studying Human Services with plans to get her masters in Christian Education. Erin is the ESA president. She is from Monclova, Ohio and enjoys spending time at home in the fields reading books. When not snuggling with her cat or making dinner on Sunday nights she spends her time dancing with Purdue’s east coast swing and blues dance club.
Brian O’Leary is our vice-president this year. A junior in MET and the ROTC program. Being over six feet tall Brian spends most of his time smacking his head on chandeliers and door frames. When not biking and hitting his head, Brian spends his time with the Purdue Pistol and Riffle team.
If you mix a cup of weird, a tablespoon of loud and a pinch of annoying you get a sophomore at Purdue named Eva Stachler. Eva is a pre-pharm major who truly enjoys the sheep upstairs and napping. being our secretary.
Ashlyne’s special skills feature counting on her fingers. No wonder she was picked to be our treasurer. Ashlyne Taylor is a sophomore in political sciences and plans to graduate in only three years.
Sam Courtemanche is a sophomore in pre-vet here at Purdue. When not wearing advent wreaths on her head Sam helps the ESA by being our volunteer coordinator. Finding ways to serve the community is what Sam excels at. If you have an opportunity we could help with, Sam’s the one to talk to!
Tammy Conard-Salvo is our faculty advisor. Tammy, a new mother adopted baby Aila out of Fort Wayne. We are all very excited for our village to watch her grow up!
