President

Connor Miller   I’m a U4 Bioresource Engineering student, and I’ve been with the tractor team for about 4 years now. As last years captain, my responsibilities this year are to assist younger members on the team in their designs as well as additionally give programming tutorials. MUTRAC is where I learned most of my designing skills and was given the opportunity to apply things that I had learned in class to a real-world situation.

Secretary

Victoria Tseng Paepcke   Hey! I’m a 3rd-year Life Science student and this year’s VP Secretary! I joined the team in my first year because of my interest in tractors and tractor pulls. As Secretary, I’m in charge of recording the minutes during our weekly general meetings. Last year, I held the position of VP Finance where I presented weekly account updates at our general meetings and approved purchases. Mutrac has allowed me to both expand my knowledge and make friends outside of my program!

VP - Fundraising

Youssef Saeed   I am a U4 Bioresource Engineering student. In the previous years I have been on the electrical design team and the brakes design team. I would have also helped with other things like fundraising. However, this year seeing as I have enjoyed fundraising for the team I have decided to take on a VP position and applied for VP Fundraising.

VP - Equipment

Jessy St-Amour   Salutations, I am in my first year of Bioresource Engineering, and I have always been interested in understanding the inner workings of machines. Through Mutrac, I have had the opportunity to use Solidworks, to learn the basic mechanics of an engine, to familiarize myself with the process of obtaining products from suppliers, and to weld. I have specifically been working on the armrest, hitch and frame of the Pullwinkle.
