Elaine Hinrichs, Class of '16: I am an Environmental Studies major and Physics minor from State College, Pennsylvania. I am especially interested in restructuring human interaction with the world around us through ecological design, and see the Green EDGE Fund as one of the best resources on campus for students looking to create lasting change in their surroundings. At Oberlin, I am on the College’s Cross Country and Track and Field teams, and love running with my teammates around Oberlin and nearby areas. I'm excited to spread the word about projects the Green EDGE Fund has already made possible and discuss potential projects with fellow students and community members. I look forward to helping you implement projects that are important to you!

Julia Murphy, Class of '17: I am an Economics and Environmental Studies double major with a minor in Religion. I feel that economics and environmental sustainability go hand-in-hand. To me the Green EDGE Fund represents this duality, which inspired my desire to be a board member and inspires me as I work with Green EDGE. Although I appreciate people’s efforts to make life-changes to support the environment I feel that our generation must fight for substantial infrastructural and societal change for our society to be environmentally sustainable. I enjoy traveling and music. This semester at Oberlin I am part of a new organization looking to create pluralism in economics, I am also teaching the Alternative Schools of Economic Thought ExCo. Otherwise, I am on the Economics Majors Committee. I am very excited about working with the EDGE Fund this semester and for the years to come.

Hillary Pan, Class of '18: (Office of Environmental Sustainability Efficiency Liaison) I’m a Physics major from the San Francisco Bay Area. Working with the Office of Environmental Sustainability in conjunction with the Green EDGE Fund has been such an exciting experience, and I look forward to working further on projects presented in both. I see the Green EDGE Fund as one of the best tools for the Oberlin community to make sustainability projects become a reality and I'm especially interested in seeing larger infrastructural projects that will promote efficiency at Oberlin brought to the table. In addition to my liaison position, I'm a research assistant in both the physics and environmental studies departments and an editor/writer/admin for The Synapse.

Board Members on leave:

Kyle Mytelka, Class of '16: I am a Environmental Studies major focusing on Energy & Society. I grew up in Virginia Beach, spending much of my time on or around the water and gaining an appreciation for environmental stewardship. I hope to raise awareness of the EDGE Fund around campus and around town as it really is a great way to help folks be proactive in bringing about sustainability in their community. Outside of classes, my main passion is intramural softball and my team, the Pecan Sandies- Spring 2015 champions!

Darrell Davis, Class of '16: (Student Senate Liaison) I am a double major in Politics and Environmental Studies from San Francisco, California. Within Environmental Studies, I am focusing on Environmental Justice. In my free time, I like to give affirmations to people when they need it (which if you really think about it is all the time), create community wherever I go, and unlearning oppressive ways and behaviors that I have been socialized to practice and believe. I am working with the Green Edge Fund through Student Senate as the Sustainability Liaison, and am excited to work the Edge Fund.
