The year 2014 marks an important year for the Valiant Defenders Party. Why you may ask? In April of this year the VDP will celebrate it's 2nd birthday. Formed by half a dozen CollegePlus (CP) students back in 2012, the VDP has now multiplied to roughly 20 times that amount. And added to it non-CollegePlus students as well that share common background, goals and passions.
The last two years have been years of growth and change for us. The VDP started off as a party that ran in CollegePlus student body elections. Though after winning one election, our focus shifted to become something more than that, to become a student leadership society for CollegePlus students and then also for non-CP students. It is our goal that through our network of members that we can aid all of them to reach both academic and life goals by being part of the VDP.
The year 2013 was a busy year for our party. We went from winning that election in the beginning of the year to shifting focus to being a student society in the fall. There were countless activities throughout the year as well. Including, but not limited to the Advent Orchestra, Royal Present swap, Sunglasses Swag contest and much more!
Now we look ahead. I see this as being an interesting year, not with as much change as last year but more growth and development. This looks to be a great year for the Party and I’m excited to see what is in store!
Of course, none of this is possible without our members, so thank you to all members, keep being awesome! Also, thank you to everybody who served in a Party position.
