Below is a list of Officers in Student Honors Council which includes their picture and a brief bio. You can also find their contact information here.
President - Sydney McVicker
Imagine a place where everyone is considered a leader. Somewhere diversity is embraced, and cultural differences embodied. Rainbows light the sky and unicorns roam free. A welcoming environment that anyone can call home. Celebrations of equity and inclusion, of both success and failure; this is a place we can all strive to create. Sydney McVicker believes this idea is not only possible, but we have the ability to make it a reality. As a sophomore at UNC, she is working towards completing a Psychology degree, Leadership Studies minor, and both the lower and upper division Honors Programs. She is a Diversity Mentor in Harrison Hall, and strives to be well versed in social justice. Passion drives her to make long lasting relationships, and to motivate others to speak for what they believe. In an uncertain society, Sydney believes anyone can make an impact big enough to change the world.

General Council Member - Joshua Wiggins
Imagine yourself to be a young woman in her mid-twenties, who, having only recently moved to the San Francisco Bay Area, is looking for love. You meet a young man in an obscure coffee shop that seems to sell more ceramics than it does actual coffee, and the two of you hit it off immediately. However, at the end of the breakfast, as he takes one final bite of the packet of Goldfish™ (the crackers, not the fish) you had purchased, he confesses that he must immediately return to Spain to help his uncle on their goldfish (the fish, not the crackers) farm before the season was over and harvest was to begin. As he collects his belongings and dashes out the door, he leaves behind a pamphlet advertising a masquerade ball happening in three weeks' time. Undaunted, you prepare to go to the gala, only to discover at the gate that it was exclusively for Cantonese sojourners within the city as a sort of political get together, and no, there were certainly no Spaniards invited. Aghast, you wander the streets of the park near your apartment complex, where you run into an old summer fling from your high school years, fall for him once more, and before you realize exactly what had happened thirty years of marriage have flown by. Your two children, Xavier and Amanda, are darlings. That's what being Joshua Wiggins is like.
Also, he really likes books and is pursuing a degree in English. He doesn't quite know what he wants to do with himself, but no one does either, so that's quite alright.
