Raymond Gosen - ASO President
Raymond Gosen is 22 years old. He has volunteered and worked for numerous nonprofit and government organizations aimed to guide, mentor, and empower the youth. Americorps (YPI) and STAR education are amongst a few. Ray has received numerous certification and specifically certification in going above and beyond his standard of care with his commitment and dedication to the community.
Growing up and living almost his entire life here in Sylmar has motivated him to make a great difference in the lives of many students. Currently attending both Los Angeles Mission College and California State University at Northridge, Ray plans to get his Bachelors in Psychology, only to go onto Law School where he wishes to pursue a degree in Environmental Law.
A strong idea that Ray likes to capitalize on is that "Actions Speak much louder than words." To propel and make change, one must be intertwined within the community in order to communicate and plan properly. One hand alone does not clap, but a few hands will make an audience.
Raul Juarez - ASO President
My name is Raul Juarez; a Business major (emphasis in non-profit) at LAMC running for ASO President. Currently I am the ASO Treasurer, AGS Honors society member, and Business Entrepreneurship Club member. Outside of campus I frequently volunteer with organizations such as: the Midnight Mission located on Skid row whom help rehab the homeless back into society, and The Special Needs Network whom assist people with disabilities. My long term goal is to establish my own non-profit that will alleviate homelessness in the San Fernando Valley.
As ASO President my goals will be to bring resources and funds to students-such as job fairs and internships. A crucial part of my role will be to bring back student involvement. Currently our campus lacks a pulse. During my term I will strive to create fun beneficial events that will bring back life to our campus. I will connect with other colleges to create Missions first (or first in many years) Inter-campus events with other colleges. Overall fostering both intellect and enjoyment, creating memories students can carry for a lifetime.
I believe that a true leader must be able to serve. As president I will stand by my students and regardless if I have a solid plan I will always ask the question, -How may I be of service to you?
Shannon Zollars - ASO President
I am the co-founder and President of the Culinary Arts Club. Having run a business and working with corperations like Sears and Masonite Corp. over the past thirty years I know what it takes to be a leader and get things done. A good leader not only leads but must be able to listen, learn and follow the people they represent. My only concern is for the betterment of the students at L.A.M.C. and the LACCD. I have a good understanding of what this will take and I will be very dedicated to doing so. My motto is "Students First".
Kandra Brooks - ASO Treasurer
For an organization as great as ASO I feel it necessary to give a hundred percent of myself to my fellow students. Working in a retail environment has prepared me to take on a leadership role such as Treasurer, whether you work in retail or not everyone can relate to the work ethics, dedication, and leadership of a retail management team. When I am the manager on duty I lead my team to a hundred percent customer satisfaction while keeping the books even and the employees happy. When I am not working with the Child Development Center or the company Ross I am hard at work at my church helping to balance and allocate the money properly. These positions I have held have more than equipped me for the position of Treasurer and I will give my all to ensure that the needs of the student body are met to the fullest with their best interests at heart.
