Major: English-Literature
Minor: Library Sciences
Hometown: Neenah, WI
I'm just a simple girl that loves everything books, Taylor Swift, and pink. After I graduate from UWEC, I hope to become a writer or editor. It's a passion of mine to travel, so I would love to document my adventures in a travel magazine. I'm very excited and grateful to be a member of Sigma Tau Delta-Theta Zeta again this year, and to be working with some amazing people! Here's to a great year!

Minor: Topical Minor-"Character Development"

I am very excited to be the VP for STD this year! I think the next two semesters are going to be full of fun events and lots of laughs so I encourage everyone to join! In my spare time I like to tdo outdoor activities like running, camping, frisbee, soccer, and whatever else relates to that. Once I graduate in May 2014, I hope to get a job that I love and while I haven't figured out what that will be, I am hopeful I'll figure it all out soon. The most important thing about me is I have a cat named Twinkles.

Treasurer -
Ryan Furlong
Major: English-Education
2nd Major: History-Education
Hometown: Stillwater, MN
I am in my fifth (and final) year at the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire. I am involved on the executive boards of both the English Honor Society and History Honor Society, and am passionate about always learning something new and fascinating. I am a follower of jesus. I love literature, history, philosophy, and some solid theology, but my love for my fiance tori goes far beyond books. Playing the drums and the ukulele rank high on my relaxing activities, while I cannot get enough of a good workout. I am looking forward to a great year in Sigma Tau Delta!

Historian -
Anna Mae Tempus
Major: English Education
Minor: Theater Arts
Hometown: Shawano, WI
I am second year student at UW Eau Claire, and a member of the local chapter, Theta Zeta. As an English major, I have a great passion for reading and writing- but mostly I enjoy helping others cultivate that passion as well. In my free time, I also enjoy baking, watching movies, and becoming hypnotized by the internet. I encourage all to join Theta Zeta, for the connections, friendships, and opportunities afforded to its members are absolutely irreplaceable!

Kaitlyn Johnson
Major: English Literature
Minor: Mass Communications – Advertising

This is my fourth year at UWEC and my first semester involved with Sigma Tau Delta. I plan on attending graduate school and eventually earning my PhD.

Website Manager-
Crystal Kloth
Major: English-Creative Writing
2nd Major: Psychology
Hometown: Medford, WI
I am a senior with a passion for English and Psychology (they often fight for my attention). I transferred as a Junior from UW-Marshfield where I became a member of Sigma Kappa Delta (one of our 2 year campus chapters). I love creative writing of all kinds, but my favorites are poetry and short stories. In the near future, I hope to begin submitting to publishers and after graduation to find a job somewhere in the psychology field. I have a very wide range of interests including baking, art/photography, and procrastination. In my free time you can usually find me hanging out with my roommate, watching a movie, or with my nose in a good book.

PR-Membership- Grant Butterfield,

Carey Applegate
PhD in English Studies (Illinois State University)
MA in Cirriculum & Instruction (University of Mississippi
Hometown: Peoria, IL
I teach English Education, popular culture, and composition in the English Department at UWEC, and I love working with our students - especially the Sigma Tau Delta crowd! My favorite authors are all over the place... Anne Lamott, John Green, H. Samy Alim, Jennifer Crusie, Sherman Alexie... The list could go on. I love kicking back by traveling around to new places, swimming and hanging out on the beach in warm weather, doing movie marathons with friends, writing about popular culture, doing photography, and singing (loudly) in my jeep. When I grow up, I want to be a Winchester - "saving people, hunting things... the family business."
