Senior Brooklyn Chaffee was named Grand Valley’s 2021 Homecoming Regent.
Chaffee, a communications studies major and digital studies minor, was nominated for regent by her roommate, Alexia Davis, and friend, Jay Chapa, because of her dedication to having a positive impact on campus.
“I’m here for a reason, and I’m putting everything I have back into the school. I’m trying to show what it truly means to be a Laker for a Lifetime,” Chaffee said.
Chaffee participates in Kappa Kappa Psi, a coed service fraternity, the Campus Activities Board and the Mario Kart Club. She works for University Libraries in the Knowledge Market, supporting students by offering digital skills consulting. Chaffee is also a member of the Laker Marching Band, which was by her side cheering her on at the October 30 Homecoming football game.
“As soon as I came up on the board, for just my introduction, the whole band started going crazy,” Chaffee said. “At that point I thought to myself, if I don’t win that’s completely fine, this is more than enough. All this overwhelming support is so moving.”
