The 2022-2023 Student Alumni Executive Board


Joseph Andreason

I will be serving as President of Student Alumni 2022-23. Entering my final year at BYU, I will be graduating in Communications: Journalism and minoring in Spanish. I plan to attend law school starting in the Fall of 2023–location TBD.

I grew up in Murray, Utah. I played football and basketball, but now I spend more of my time enjoying pickleball and trying to figure out how to golf. I love listening to The Beatles, trying new sushi restaurants, and telling more jokes than I probably should.

A BYU fanatic, I've only missed two home football games since the start of the 2006 season (outside of my mission to El Salvador and Belize, of course). My favorite BYU athletes of all time are Cody Hoffman and Jimmer Fredette.

The only thing I love more than BYU is my lovely wife, Sadie. We are thrilled for our first child to arrive in October 2022 (right at the end of homecoming week!). Sko Cougs.

Executive Vice President

Makayla Howard

I am a Russian major and Global Business & Literacy minor from Anchorage, Alaska. I learned Russian while serving a mission in the Ukraine Kyiv Mission, and am starting to learn Ukrainian as well!

The Student Alumni Association, with the vital assistance of hundreds of volunteers, puts on events all year that are quite different in scope. However, while its reach is vast, its mission is simple-- to connect for good.

I have found my place of belonging here at the Student Alumni Association, first as a volunteer and now as a board member. It has been the best part of my BYU experience, hands down. I have found true friends, direction, and purpose here, and I hope to help all of our volunteers have a similar experience, tailor-made for them.

Vice President of Traditions

Jaycie Call

I am a senior from Kansas City, Missouri, studying Experience Design and Management. I am a perceptive friend and avid adventurer. I love tennis, pickleball, volleyball, and snowboarding.

In the fall, I love attending the BYU football games and I am proud to say I haven’t missed a home game yet.

Through Student Alumni, I have had some of the best experiences volunteering at events. Student Alumni creates opportunities for students to connect with the traditions and people of BYU, and I am grateful and excited to be a part of continuing these traditions.

Vice President of Philanthropy

Tanna Porter

I am a senior studying Human Development with a minor in Psychology. I have a very happy disposition and I love to meet new people. I love to go boating and play volleyball and pickleball during the summer. In the winter you can find me on the ski slopes every weekend.

I grew up in Logan, Utah with my 4 sisters and 2 brothers. I started studying at BYU In 2018 then I served an LDS mission in Argentina and Arizona.

I have been involved with student alumni since I started studying at BYU which has made it a big part of my college experience. Through student alumni I have had a blast, met the most amazing people, and found purpose in my life as I serve others.

Vice President of Marketing

Jayden Davis

I am a junior studying public health and nonprofit management. This intersection of disciplines allows me to learn about and address social issues, especially gaps in the healthcare system.

I served a mission in Cincinnati, Ohio, which deepened my love and compassion for people. In my free time, I love to hike, do yoga, initiate spontaneous dance parties, read, and get involved on campus and in the community. I strive to relish life as I live it!

Over the years, Student Alumni has been my home away from home. My involvement has been a source of confidence, connection, and professional development. It has been one of the most meaningful and influential aspects of my BYU experience thus far. If you love BYU and building connections, this is the place for you, too!

Vice President of Connections

Zac McMillan

My name is Zac McMillan, and I am from Salt Lake Utah. I will be a Senior studying Information Systems and I plan on being a data scientist once I graduate. I’m the oldest of four other siblings and as a family we like to play sports, games, and vacation together.

Something cool about me is that I speak three languages. I lived in Costa Rica for two years in high school where I learned Spanish, and I served my mission in Brazil so I also speak Portuguese. I’m really looking forward to this year with Byu Student alumni and I’m excited for the experiences that I’ll be able to have!
