Jacob Clark : Founding Co-Chair

Jacob Clark

Founding Co-Chair

Jacob is a junior at the University of Tennessee in the College Scholars program. His program consists of a focused study in synthetic tissues, mathematics, and physics. He plans to attend dental or medical school and become plastic/oral maxillofacial surgeon, or pursue neuropsychiatry, or non-profit activism--he's not really sure. When he was growing up, his career aspirations included becoming a bus driver, Broadway choreographer, Olympic swimming official, actor, and baptist. He has since seen the light, and decided that money is more important than choreographing You Can't Stop The (motion of the ocean or the sun in the sky, you can wonder if you wanna, but I never ask why, and if you try to hold me down, I'm gonna spit in your eye and say that you cant stop the) Beat!

Nicky Hackenbrack : Former Executive Board Member

Nicky Hackenbrack

Former Executive Board Member

Nicky started the Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program at Penn State Hershey's College of Medicine. Because of her Sex Week experience, she hopes to focus future research on sexually transmitted viruses. To be honest, she misses being in a place where she can say "y'all" indiscriminately. She watches "The Office" more than is socially acceptable and probably laughs louder than is socially acceptable. If you're ever in Hershey, let's grab coffee/chocolate!
