Maddie Hain– Operations Captain
Maddie Hain is the team’s Operations Captain. Operations manages PR, grant writing, team scouting and our finances.
Joe Shen – Technical Captain
Joe, the team’s Technical Captain, had little experience with the club when he joined. Wanting to expand his knowledge, he participated often. He personally helped to build the programming board, and rose to assistant manager. Joe wants future members to know that organization is important, and wishes to thank James O for joining and working with him. When asked if he had any more comments, he said “Send me a picture of the closet in 2027,” referencing the overcrowded closet we use for storage.
