The VSV ‘Leonardo da Vinci’ cannot exist without her active members. They are the beating heart of the association consisting of almost 200 students who work days and sometimes nights to organize activities for the almost 2600 members.
Matthew Corvers started studying in Delft in the Lustrum year 2009 and he has been a well-known face at the VSV ever since. During the 13th Lustrum he helped with everything that had to be crafted, bolted or painted. The year after that he organised the Freshmen weekend at ‘Waalsdorper Vlakte’. After a year in-between he organised that other great event that we have each year: Airbase. A 1000 people visited the ‘Casino of Gold’ edition of Airbase. Last year, Matthew had his second Lustrum as a student in Delft and as a member of the VSV ‘Leonardo da Vinci’. He decided to be actively involved in the latter, by taking part of the UPcie, last year’s Lustrum committee. He helped to make the beer cantus, the Lustrum night and the opening stunt a great success. Besides participating in all these committees, Matthew has always been around and is still a regular at so many of our activities. He does this even though he is extremely busy with his Masters and his start-up. Altogether we are glad to say that Matthew Corvers has fully earned his title as Member of Merit of the VSV!
Vera Somers started her studies in Aerospace Engineering in 2010 and since then she has done a lot for the VSV. She started in her second year in the Sportcie Committee, organizing amongst others a fantastic ski trip for a lot of VSV members. After this, she took place in the Design Battle Competition, which resulted in the Scrapheap Challenge of 2012. As she became older, the projects became bigger. She continued her work by combining the Master Evaluation Committee and the Study Tour 'Valhalla'. This Study Tour took a group of 30 students all the way through Europe. The journey took the participants along Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Italy. The Study Tour is one of the largest activities that we organize as a society, however there is one event that is even larger and that is our Airshow. This is what Vera has worked on after her Study Tour participation. Within the group of Logistics and Safety, Vera helped shape the grand finale of our 14th Lustrum. On the 29th of August, last year, she and the Airco welcomed over 15,000 visitors at Breda International Airport. In all these committees, Vera has shown an incredible enthusiasm and spirit. Because of all her accomplishments, we have asked Vera, on the air side of Texel Airport on the Flying Weekend, to become a Member of Merit of the VSV. She has fully deserved this title during her long VSV career!
