Written by Danielle Snow. Danielle is a second-year sophomore studying Sociology and Gender and Women’s Studies. She is our chapter's Public Relations Chairperson and the Co-President and Co-Founder of the WMU RSO FemiNOW.
Junior and Political Science major, James Hurley has been a part of Western Michigan University’s Alpha Lambda Delta Chapter since the Spring semester of 2014. He’s been an active, volunteering member for many ALD events including Bronco Bash, Walk 4 Water, the Condom Fashion Show and many more; the Condom Fashion Show being his favorite. “It had a great message, good production value, and I was always doing something constructive and helpful throughout the experience, which I don't always get to do during events. I even got to be a judge, which I thought was nice!” wrote James.
When discovering he’d been selected as ALD’s member of the month for September, James wrote, “I'm glad I have the privilege to be a part of such an honestly good organization that pretty much does nothing but give back to others. It’s a pleasant change from all the other groups I've been a part of in the past that were more of a "have to" rather than a "want to" in regards to activities.”
Not only is James an incredibly active member of ALD, but he is also on the executive board of the Western Democrats, a voting Senator for WSA, currently a part of Western’s new Model UN RSO, a member of the Political Science Society Phi Sigma Alpha and is also in the Lee Honors College program. He has also been recognized for the maintaining of his 3.5 GPA all throughout his college career. He was recognized for his efforts under a State Senator during the Political Science award dinner of 2014. He was also award WSA’s “Most Dedicated Senator” and he can now add Alpha Lambda Delta’s September Member of the Month to his list of achievements. In the future, James hopes to work in and around the Lansing area, making a professional footstep in the political arena. His biggest dream is to work for either a legislative or executive member in any way possible.
Thank you for all the hard work you’ve put forth with Alpha Lambda Delta and congratulations, James.
