Pi Nu Officers 2013- 2014
President: Colten Hartman
My name is Colten Hartman. I am from central Texas via Nebraska. There are three things in the world that contain more awesomeness than any others. They are History, Music and Traveling. I have experienced much of all three and love to talk about any of them. Skateboarding and writing are hobbies that I also could go on about, but I won't for the sake of brevity. However, I really am into shooting the breeze about anything. So, don't be too shy.
Vice-President: Megan Veburg
Why hello there. I am Megan Veburg and am so excited to be Phi Alpha Theta's Vice-President. I'm a senior this year and originally hail from Shelby, Nebraska. I'm a history major with a minor in German, (Guten Tag) with hopes of being a professor someday. This should be a great year for us and as new members appear it can only get better!
Secretary: Stephanie Lyons
Hi guys! My name is Stephanie Lyons and I am a senior majoring in secondary education in social sciences with an emphasis on geography. I am from Omaha, NE. In the near future, I plan to have a career in public history interpretation. In my free time, I love watching the Huskers and the St. Louis Cardinals, fishing, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. I look forward to the upcoming year and exciting things Phi Alpha Theta has to offer!
Faculty Advisor: Dr. Roger Davis
Professor of History
Greetings. I teach Latin American and United States history and do research on Hispanics in the Great Plains region and on political culture in 19th century South America. I am originally from Ohio, and spent my graduate years in Tucson, Arizona, before setting down roots here in central Nebraska. Phi Alpha Theta is a great organization providing opportunities for students to be recognized for their academic achievements in the discipline of History.
