HWS Class Presidents

First Year

Hobart: Christopher Doyle '17

I am from Potomac, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, D.C. I went to high school at Georgetown Prep, where I played lacrosse and football. I also like to golf, fish, and snowboard in my spare time. I have an older brother and sister that have graduated from college and now work in the Washington, DC area. My aunt and uncle met at Hobart and I have multiple cousins that have subsequently attended Hobart and William Smith. I have already started to think of events we can hold and am ea-ger to hear your ideas. One event that I suggest is a barbecue before a home lacrosse game, I believe it would be a great way to meet fellow class members and foster school spirit. I am looking into a caterer and am open to your recommendations. I also believe that a networking event in which HWS alumni are invited would be a great option. Please feel free to contact me with any suggestions at

William Smith: Elizabeth Chirco '17

My name is Elizabeth Chirco, but I go by Biz. I am the William Smith Cass of 2017 Class President and also am a member of the William Smith Field Hockey team. I love God, America, politics, and this school. Three years ago when I set foot on this campus for the first time, I knew it was where I was supposed to be. HWS has always been more than just a school to me; it is a community and a way of life. I look forward the rest of the year and helping to ensure everyone gets the most they can out of their first year!


Hobart: Ryan Tinklepaugh '16

I am a 2012 graduate of West Genesee High School. While there I was Vice President for four years and I knew I wanted to continue student government at Hobart. I played varsity lacrosse, hockey, and soccer. My family includes my parents, Jay and Kathy, and my brother Jay. I also have a dog named Mia. I am a resident of the Bampton House as well as a member of the Chi Phi fraternity. I serve as the Risk Manager for 2014. My activities include: HWS investment club, Hobart student gov-ernment, and the Constitution Committee.

William Smith: Erica McLaughlin '16

I grew up Medfield, Massachusetts, with my mother, father and two older sisters. In 2012 I graduated from Medfield High School, where I was member of the national hon-ors society, drama club, and chorus. My interests go beyond student government and at HWS I am involved in a wide range of activities. I am a member of Hip NotiQ's the step team, 3 Miles Lost the female a cap-pella group, I am a writing colleague, and a tour guide for the admissions office. I also live in Beta Sigma, the political and social change house.

This semester I look forward to working with Ryan Tinklepaugh, the Hobart 2016 class president, on exciting new events for the sophomore class.
