The Manager

Melinda Becker TC '15

When she was a child in Norton, Kansas, Melinda’s kindergarten teacher wrote her mom a note about how she liked to run other peoples’ lives. Sixteen years later, her hobbies haven’t changed and she’s managing the Members of. .

Melinda is a proud former section leader of the Clarrrrrinets. She’s also fed the band as social chair and led the band in a different kind of song as Singing Bus Leader.

When she’s not managing the YPMB, Melinda, a linguistics major, can be found analyzing everything people say. (Come talk to her; if you say something interesting, you might end up in one of her papers!) She can also be seen pretending to contribute to science at the Alzheimer’s Research Lab where she works.

Melinda loves her job as “the girl who holds the white board,” and despite what it might look like on football mornings, she would love to talk to you. Contact her at
