President: Cynthia Tyrell

How long I’ve been with RecBoard: This will be my third year being apart of RecBoard, and my second year being on the e-board!

Why I joined: I joined RecBoard because I really wanted to get involved on my campus. Once I stepped foot into a meeting, I knew that this place was going to be my home throughout my time at Montclair State University.

Favorite Memory: My favorite memory from RecBoard is all of the times that I got to spend with members of the club whether it was running an event, going out to eat, or just hanging around the rec. We always have a great time, and that is what I love about this organization.


Vice President: Bryana Lewis

How long I’ve been with RecBoard: I’ve been with RecBoard for 3 years and this is my first year on the executive board!

Why I joined: I joined RecBoard because I absolutely adore the atmosphere RecBoard gives. From my very first meeting, I immediately felt I was accepted amongst my peers. Everyone was extremely accepting and made me feel like I was apart of a family. I knew that RecBoard was definitely the club for me.

Favorite Memory: My favorite memory has to be Friends Day. It was amazing to see the entire Rec Center work together and put on such an amazing event.


Special Events Chair: Jehan Abayhan

How long I’ve been with RecBoard:  This will be my second year participating with RecBoard, but my first year being apart of the E-Board!
Why I joined: I joined RecBoard because it gave me the opportunity to have a much more fulfilling experience at school as a commuter. Not only have RecBoard events/meetings pushed me outside of my comfort zone but it has, and continues to introduce me to some of the most amazing people around campus and this is something I am so fortunate for.

Favorite Memory: My favorite memory from RecBoard has been preparing for Bingo, since it was the first big event I was able to work alongside the rest of the E-Board and leadership committee!

Special Events Chair: Diamond Jordan

How long I’ve been with RecBoard: This will be my second year with RecBoard and my first year on the executive board!
Why I joined: I joined Recboard as a way to meet new people and to get involved on campus. While attending every Friday Recboard meeting, I began to make friends, create memories, and discover a sense of belonging. Recboard has greatly impacted my experience here at Montclair State University and I hope to continue that for all current and future members.

Favorite Memory: My favorite memory has to be helping out with the events. Now being one of the leaders in making these events happen is so much fun!

Marketing Chair: Christian Cortez

How long I’ve been with RecBoard: This will be my third year with RecBoard and my first year on e-board!
Why I joined: I joined RecBoard because I wanted to try something new on campus. RecBoard got my attention during freshman year and I knew I made the right choice when I got more involved. It is a safe place for everyone and it showed me how to meet new people and make new friends.
Favorite Memory: My favorite memory from RecBoard has to be preparing for the big events on campus because I like interacting with the other members making sure that the events are a success. It’s so fun being together and having fun.
