2022 Engineering Class Marshals

Jun 10, 2022   |   Dartmouth News

Each year, class marshals are selected by their fellow students on the basis of good citizenship, enthusiasm, integrity, and positive impact on others. The marshals carry batons engraved with their names as they lead their classmates to the Green during the commencement procession.

The 2022 marshals were invited to write a brief encapsulation of their time at Dartmouth and to answer this question:

Looking back on your time at Dartmouth, what place would you lift up as significant to your experience on campus, and why?

Abigail Brazil '21 Th'22

Hometown: Jackson, Wyo.

Degrees: AB in Engineering Sciences, BE in Mechanical Engineering

Brazil was a four-year varsity athlete for the cross country and track teams, serving as captain for her final seasons, in addition to being president of the Tau Beta Pi engineering honors society.

Favorite Place on Campus: Pine Park

"The proximity of Dartmouth to nature was a large reason why I chose this school, and it continues to be one of my favorite things about Dartmouth. My cross country team and I are able to run from our locker room and suddenly find ourselves deep in the woods of Pine Park, overlooking the Connecticut River, chatting and laughing as we go."

Ivan Cornish Morales '19 Th'22

Hometown: Monterrey, Mexico

Degree: Master of Engineering Management

Morales' quest for knowledge drove him to come back to Dartmouth for his master’s in engineering management. After graduating in 2019, he strove to give back to his peers as a resident fellow and teaching assistant.

Favorite Place on Campus: Fairchild Steps

"The steps coming out of Fairchild provide one of the best views of Baker Tower. I can still picture the countless sunsets I witnessed as I descended the steps on my way back to Thayer for some evening work. Admiring the tower and its contrast to the evening sky always gave me a few moments to relax and bolster my motivation for the challenges ahead."

Alicia C. Everitt Th'22

Hometown: Hood River, Ore.

Degree: PhD in Engineering Sciences

Passionate about community, Everitt served on Thayer Council, was a teaching assistant for multiple engineering courses, mentored undergraduate research, did STEM outreach, and loved to adventure in the nearby mountains.

Favorite Place on Campus: The Tower Room

"I remember the first time I found the Tower Room I instantly felt a part of something serious, intellectual, and with rich history. I sought out that space often to help me focus and push through stress in my early years, and I returned to it in my last year while writing my dissertation, reflecting on all that Dartmouth had been both personally and professionally. Also, no better spot to get cozy and warm in winter — just don't fall asleep!"
