President: Rebecca Laing

Email: president@ccmknights.com  

Hi everyone! My name’s Rebecca and I’m so blessed to be serving as your president this year! I am a junior here at UCF studying Business Management. I got involved with CCM my freshman year by getting hooked on the undeniable family aspect of the community! Everyone was so welcoming and loving and I can only hope that I, along with the rest of the community, can be that for others. From there, I never looked back! I got involved in many of the committees that we offer and even served as Social Chair last year! Some other fun facts about me: I love Disney (the parks, movies, music, you name it), volleyball, pizza, and playing guitar! I also love meeting new people so please come say hi! I am in this position to do the Lord’s Will and to share the love that He has shown to me- I am so excited to see where the He leads the community this year. Come Holy Spirit!


Vice President: John (Goose) Gotheridge

Email: vp@ccmknights.com

My name is John Gotheridge, but almost everyone calls me Goose. I am currently a fourth year student at UCF and I am an interdisciplinary studies major with an education minor. With my major, I have 75% of two different majors to form my degree. My main focuses are psychology and general humanities, which I use to take religious studies courses as well as philosophy courses. I did not start going to CCM for events besides Sunday mass until October of my sophomore year. Since then, I've been fully committed to helping this ministry in every way that I could. I felt called to run for eboard because I wanted to take a bigger role in helping this ministry grow and I have been blessed with a lot that could help. After college, I plan on doing ministry work for the rest of my life.



Secretary: Carly Grimison

Hello everyone! My name is Carly Grimison, and I'll be serving as your Secretary this year. I am a junior at UCF majoring in biology with a pre-dental concentration and minoring in business. I've been coming around to this community since freshman year, and I have absolutely fallen in love with it. I am honored to have this opportunity to go deeper in the faith with you all and am so excited for what God has planned for us this year!



Treasurer: Molly Dawkins

Email: treasurer2@ccmknights.com

Hi y'all! My name is Molly Dawkins and I am serving as CCM Treasurer for the 2017-2018 school year! I am a junior studying biomedical sciences. I plan on going to medical school in two years (ahh!!) and want to become a pediatric doctor. I joined CCM the spring of my freshman year and boy what an amazing blessing it has been in my life! Through CCM, I found a loving, welcoming community of like-minded people all with the same goal: going to Heaven! Other than CCM, I love playing soccer, relaxing with friends, playing the harp and exploring nature. I also love hearing about people's lives so I hope to get to your stories of how you got here!!





Historian: Amanda Davis

Email: historian@ccmknights.com

Hello! My name is Amanda Davis and I am so blessed to be able to serve you all as Historian this year. I am currently a third year student majoring in Accounting and I am currently trying to decide on a minor. I’ve lived in Florida for 14 years, but Maryland will always hold a special place in my heart as my first home. When I decided to come to UCF, I did not know that CCM even existed, but Jesus is funny sometimes because I have found my home away from home in this community. I have made some of my deepest friendships here and I have grown in a deeper relationship with the Lord. I enjoy doing a lot of things such as going on adventures in my chacos and bucket hat, getting Mini cupcakes on Mondays, playing soccer, and singing; and I enjoy doing all this with my friends. I am excited for all the adventures that will come this year, especially while serving on E-Board!



Spiritual Coordinator: Jesus Penaloza

Email: ccmspiritual@gmail.com

Hello everyone, my name is Jesus Penaloza and I was born in Los Teques, Venezuela. I moved to Central Florida at the age of 2 and have lived in the area ever since. I am a senior majoring in Mechanical Engineering and minoring in Intelligent Robotic Systems. I am incredibly excited to be serving all of you in this brand new executive board position as Spiritual Coordinator! Since starting at Catholic Campus Ministry, I have seen my faith skyrocket to new heights. I know the Lord has called me to challenge the community of Catholic Campus Ministry to go deeper with our faith and our relationship with Jesus Christ through this position. I have gained so much having previously served as a Bible study chair, social chair, and retreat director, and I cannot wait to see the wonders that the Lord has in store for all of us this year!
