Elaine Sheehan (‘18)
Elaine is a junior majoring in English. She loves getting involved on campus and meeting people throughout Westminster's small community, but especially appreciates the connections she’s made through her involvement in the Honors College. Elaine has been a writer and editor for the Honors newsletter, Honorable Mention, since her first year and is eager to increase student involvement by recruiting many new writers (and future editors) during the upcoming year. In her free time, Elaine loves going to the theater (or participating in the productions), rock climbing with friends, or enjoying the mountains she calls home.
Elaine is excited to continue her involvement with the Honors College through the Student Honors Council. Her goal for this year is to spread awareness of the incredible opportunities available to Honors students and maintain the tight-knit community during this exciting time of growth. She wants every Honors student to take advantage of and enjoy the opportunities offered by the college as much as she has.

Holden is a senior philosophy student at Westminster. Currently, he is working on an independent research project through the Honors College. This coming year he will be applying to graduate programs in philosophy and, potentially, the Fulbright Scholar program. On campus, Holden has filled a variety of roles, including ASW Senator, resident advisor, research assistant, ethics bowl co-captain, supplementary instructor, and principal bassoonist for the Westminster Chamber Orchestra. In his free time, Holden enjoys reading, listening to music, and trail running.
Holden is excited to connect Honors students together outside of the classroom this year. He hopes to encourage thoughtful and invigorating conversations at SHC events. He also hopes to involve students in the exciting developments taking place in the Honors College in the near future.

She is the president of Mock Trial, history club officer, resident advisor for summer housing, and a performer in many of Westminster’s music ensembles.

Julie is an enthusiastic individual who’s always up for a challenge and a good laugh. She loves podcasts, movies, and is a self-proclaimed foodie. As an SHC member, she wants to create a smooth transition to the Honors College and create a welcoming environment for lateral-entry students by integrating the Honors community into the rest of campus.
