President: Deric

Meet Deric Liang, our President! Deric is a senior majoring in Statistics and Economics.

Shortly after joining, he found that the Glee Club was not only a great environment to constantly learn and grow as a singer, but also a place to develop personally and professionally. Outside of the Glee Club, Deric participates in the Oriana Singers and Glee Club THON Organization as the Donor and Alumni Relations Chair, works on various research projects, and enjoys lifting and playing video games. Deric feels that the Glee Club has given so much to him and is extremely excited to give back to the Club in his role as President and sing with his fellow members for the 2020-2021 academic year!
