Use the markdown blurb as is now, and use a placeholder if there's no blurb.

Additional notes from our meeting on Jan. 19/2022:

  • LDAP can be used to get the names of the people in each exec position (president, vice president, etc.). Since (almost) everyone's headshots are named FirstnameLastname.jpg/png/etc., these names can be used to grab the image for each exec. See https://wiki.csclub.uwaterloo.ca/LDAP for some more information on LDAP, and/or look at the code for the Members page since that also uses LDAP.
  • We will continue to use the .md files in content/team/execs to store each exec's blurb, though we can change the file names/contents slightly as needed (eg. we can probably get rid of the numbers in the file names).
  • If an exec does not have a blurb (ie. a .md file does not exist for them), then we should display some kind of placeholder blurb. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a good way to programmatically fetch a user's program or year though.
