Student Board:

Current Chair of the Board: Mariella DiStefano

"Hey! My name is Mariella, and I'm a junior Biology major here at Eastern! Some fun facts about me- I love nature, cooking, anything to do with music, good food, and making people feel loved. Most importantly (of course), my favorite colors are sunshine yellow and forest green. While at Eastern, I have been involved with so much, and through these different classes, clubs, and experiences, I've learned about God's creation in biology, and grown in listening to and leading others. As a freshmen, I became invested in the community at Eastern, mostly through LFP and other clubs, such as Wednesday Night Worship. Now, I am Chair of the LFP, President of Wednesday Night Worship, have had the privilege of being a Student Chaplain, and am a Lab Assistant for a Biology class. One day I dream of finding a way for my passions about different cultures, strong communities, and creativity to intersect in the field of Biology."

Previous Chair of the Board: Jacob Breyer


"I am Jacob Breyer and through LFP I have been blessed with the opportunity to serve as a small group leader, as well as the chair of the program. It has been a great experience and I am beyond greatful for the oppurtunities that LFP has blessed me with. Outside of LFP, I am a player on and a captain of the Eastern University baseball team."

Current Board Members:

Apart from the board, I currently serve as a Prison Ministry leader here at Eastern and as a member of the Youth Aid Panel of Montgomery County.

"

I love to play soccer and I am a  multi and short sprinter on Eastern University’s Track and Field athletic team. I enjoy singing and dancing, as well as hanging out with friends and family. I am also an artist and love to spend free time painting, drawing, and practicing the art of hand lettering."
