Lee is in his 5th year and studies a MEng Civil Engineering while fulfilling his role as events secretary for the Civil Engineering society. His dedication in organising both social and academic events has been recognised by the committee and members and they believe his dedication reflects the societies growth from 15 to 50 members over the past 2 years.

On a more social level, members are involved in a football 7s league and meet at Marcos pool bar regularly.
Being a senior and active member of the society Lee recognises stainability of the society is key. With this in mind, he’s been committed to developing new members along with supporting committee members taking on new roles.
Overall Lee has been a great asset to the society.
Sports Person of the Month: David Tompa - Mens Volleyball
David is a 1st year BA (Hons) Marketing Management student who’s smoothly transitioned into the Mens Volleyball Squad. Due to his diverse skillset, he has been required to play a passing position in the team that he was previously unfamiliar with, as well as his typical attacking style-showing willingness to accommodate other players in the team.
The club feels David has made a solid contribution to the team in many aspects. Performance wise volleyball have won 5 out of their 7 games this Semester and narrowly missed out on promotion by only 2 points! The club believes Davids consistency in games has got them back on form and has given the club the boost it needed.
David was also keen to put himself forward for Napier Cheerleading's fundraising event, which has boosted club relations by bringing the Mens and Womens squads together to support eachother but also facilitating further joint social events within Team Napier.
As a first year student in the club, David has already made a very positive impact in the short time that he has been involved. We believe he will become a core component of the team as the club progresses in future years.
