What is a leader? To me, a leader is someone who provides guidance or direction or can inspire others in a common cause. I also like to believe my leaders tell the truth. Jimmy Dummermuth is not the ‘chief of finance of the Washburn Finance Society,’ as he claimed in “Let the games begin” (2/13). Not only is he not the chief of finance, he is not even a current member of the finance society. I would think the supposed chief of finance would know if he had paid his dues for the year. This fallacy was brought to my attention by another officer of the Finance Society. He was also kind enough to check with the writer of the article to make sure it was not a misprint. As President of the Washburn Finance Society, I would like to take it upon myself to correct this falsehood to make sure no one is misled. With this definition of a leader, I worry if Mr. Dummermuth is capable of fulfilling this position.
President, Washburn Finance
