"Continuing the Excellence" - David Cwiertny - President Fall 1999
All I really wanted to do when I took over as president was continue the excellent tradition of executive officers that CA A had had before me. I saw the visions of previous leaders like Bernie Lin, and I was inspired to try to continue those and reach even higher levels of success (and hopefully not screw up along the way :)). I came away from my presidency fairly pleased with how the semester resulted. We recieved the candidate list in a remarkably fast manner,and had the largest candidate class to date (I believe). We started some good events and continued many of the old ones. I was blessed to have a tremendous officer corps that, in spite of being a little green in experience, was incredibly motivated and full of wonderful ideas and inspiration. My time with Tau Beta Pi was great. Looking back, I miss it more than I thought I would. But being the president and working with such great individuals and meeting so many wonderful new friends was an experience I will never forget.
so there you have it. i never thought i would look back on tbp and berkeley and miss it so much.
