Student Government of Cerro Coso
The Student Government of Cerro Coso (SGCC), is the official student organization, with membership open to all students. The SGCC, through its governing body the Student Senate, promotes the Student Activities Program at Cerro Coso. A system of self-government has been established by which the students, through democratic action, formulate and execute policies and programs and prepare the student body's financial budget.
Cerro Coso Community College students can purchase the Coyote Card each semester at the time of registration. These funds, in turn, support the Student Activities Program which benefits the college and contributes to the welfare of all students. Possession of a Coyote Card may qualify an individual to serve as a club representative or a student Senator, to hold office, to join college student organizations, and to receive student discounts in the college bookstore, as well as in the community. Members are also entitled to reduced or free admission to various on-campus and off-campus events sponsored by the SGCC.

Normally people put they are the best candidate for the position because they believe they can make a difference. I am not going to say the same cliché statement. What I will offer however, is a voice. Not a voice of the student necessarily, but a voice for the students that are not saying anything. Let's face it, it is hard to get students involved in school activities especially at a junior college, but it is possible through the right means. My goal as president of the Student Government is to strengthen the bond a student holds to their school. I am proud of my school and I want the students Cerro Coso to also be proud.
I have spent over a year helping the student Government. During this time I have provided ideas, logistic support, and have been included in many decision making and representative processes.
I have a history of student body secretary from 8th grade; however, I have recently been the Student Services United Club representative for the SGCC. I have a bubbly personality that is addictive to be around. I always try to look on the bright side of any and all situations. I always write things down to make sure that everything is well documented. I have slight OCD, and am super organized. Please vote for me as secretary.
At my current job, I am entrusted to handle large amounts of money. I’ve held that job for two years. I will bring what I have learned from Game Stop and use it towards the office I am running for.
Region IX Representative
I would like to be a part of Student Government and help the communication process to help the SGCC operate more smoothly. I feel I can be appositive influence on the SGCC.
