Grace Bannister
Director of Membership
2021

My name is Grace, and I am a member of the Class of 2021 and resident of Quincy House. At the College, I study Government with a secondary in Archaeology. Originally from the small town of Logan, West Virginia, I joined the IOP my freshman fall as a member of the Harvard Political Union. While remaining a dedicated member of the HPU, I also served as the Director of Online Communications for the Fellows and Study Groups Program, an IOP Organizer for Freshman Engagement, liaison for S'18 Fellow Scott Jennings, and most recently, IOP Communications Director and 2019 Executive Team member. I have also been a member of the Campaigns and Advocacy Program and the Women's Initiative in Leadership. Outside of the IOP, I have served as the Vice President of both Harvard Republican Club and Network of Enlightened Women. I am also a senior staffer for both of Harvard’s Boston-based Model UN Conferences and HMUN India. In my free time, I can often be found in the IOP student office or around Quincy House. My hobbies include eating Felipe’s nachos at odd hours of the night and explaining the Second Wheeling Convention to people who probably wish I would stop talking.
