Hi Devils! My name is Rosie Graff, and I am the new Executive Director for ASLCC.
I was born and raised in Kelso, WA. I absolutely love the Pacific Northwest and all of its natural beauties. I love being outside and being active. I play tennis for Kelso High School, and I study classical ballet. This is my tenth year doing ballet, and it’s the love of my life! I really enjoy music, and I also play the cello.
I love LCC. I’m a running start student through Kelso High School, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to further my education. I am currently working toward a General AA degree, and I hope to transfer to Brigham Young University next fall.
I am thrilled to be part of student government for my second year in a row. I learned a lot from in ASLCC last year, and I am looking forward to learning even more. Making sure student voices are heard is very important to me. I value the opinion of all our students, and I hope to always lead with the whole student body in mind. Please feel free to reach out to me with any concerns or ideas you have to make LCC a better place- I want to hear from YOU!
Here’s to another great year, Devils!
Hello! My name is Jadd Curtis and will the ASLCC Student Affairs Director for the 2019-20 year.
This is my 3rd year at LCC. Yes, I liked it so much I came back for another year! I changed my intent after the first year and decided to go for a bachelor's degree in business. I am still on the fence between WGU and WSU Vancouver and can't wait to talk with both schools to see which one will fit the best. I am excited to be this years’ Student Affairs Director because I get a chance to give back to this school. One big thing I have learned here is the best education comes from asking questions and asking for help. I have received so much guidance from everyone in the library, the tutors, the fine folk at registration, and those in the career center. I have been amazed by how much they want to help. I have had the privilege of getting to know people in many areas at this school, so if you see me around and have a question, I might not have the answer, but will more than likely be able to point you in the right direction. Carl Sagan said, “There is no such thing as a dumb question.” I have learned it's only silly when you don’t ask.
Have a great year and can't wait to see you around!
Hi! I’m Sidni, the Student Activities Director for 2019 to 2020 year.
For the last year, I tutored here at Lower Columbia College. During this next year - I hope to bring new ideas to the table, whilst also listening to what my peers want this next year.
While I am still learning, I have decided to dedicate the rest of my life to the art world. Right now I currently do small scale digital illustrations. One day, I hope to be a famous graphic designer who can do anything I set my mind to.
*In addition to my love for art, I am super passionate about coral reefs, and can talk your ear off about them for hours - just ask my speech instructor.
My name is Eli and I am the Public Relations Director for the Associated Students of Lower Columbia College!
I was born and raised in Longview, and I am grateful for everything this city, family, and God has allowed for me. I recently graduated from the Career and Education Options program offered on our campus to earn my high school diploma. I’m a very positive person because we only get to live once and life is more fun when you’re happy. I’m very competitive and nerdy, so naturally I found a home with our Fighting Smelts Speech and Debate team. I’ve made a lot of great friends and I’ve grown a lot since I first started attending.
I’m very grateful to serve and get to know the rest of our ever-changing student body and represent the school that has changed my life. Feel free to approach me about anything, there’s always room for more love in the world. I know that together we can make LCC a better place for ourselves, the community, and the students that will succeed us.
Hello! I am Nelly Lynnet Wanja Wangari but would prefer being called Lynn.
I will be the Diversity & Equity Director for ASLCC 2019-2020. I am from Kenya, Africa where I was born and raised. I attended a university in Kenya where I studied information technology (IT) but before finishing got a chance to come to the US and took it wholeheartedly. Now I’m doing the prerequisites of nursing hoping to join the nursing program in 2020. Why the change of heart from IT to Nursing? Well, I have always wanted to be a doctor when I was young and being in LCC taking nursing is taking a step at a time. IT is my second-best career.
I am very happy to be in the student government helping others when in need and also making their lives less stressful and more bearable. I need all the help I can get to help you like the saying “help me help you’. I have some experience in leadership in some organizations back in Kenya. So the Diversity & Equity Director, here I come! All ideas and help will be highly appreciated. Thank you all.
My name is Mitchell Levy, and I will be your Chief Justice Officer for the 2019-20 school year.
This year will be my second at LCC as a Running Start student from Kelso High School. I’ve lived in Kelso for over two years, but before I lived in Kelso, I lived in the Reno, Nevada area. I’ve really loved it here in Washington, and I hope that my time at ASLCC will benefit the community here. When I’m not working on academic obligations, I compete on the speech and debate team here at LCC, play the piano, and work on hobby programming projects. At the end of this year, I plan to transfer to a four year university to study computer science.
While I am a member of ASLCC, I hope to be able to give back to the community here at LCC and ensure that ASLCC is able to do its best work.
Hi! I’m Katrina Shaw the Graphic Designer for ASLCC this year!
I love to draw, travel, and learn as many useless facts as I can in hopes that one day I might finally win in Jeopardy. I love learning how to play instruments, I particularly enjoy the piano, guitar, ukulele, mandolin, and snoot flute. I’m just getting started on the accordion, one of the most intimidating and imposing instruments. I’m fascinated with the nuances of art, I love ceramics, drawing, stop motion, painting and general mess making. I am really excited to be a part of Student Government and have the chance to serve and be a part of this awesome community that makes up LCC. I would love your input on my artwork.
“When life is more than challenging, it is possible to change your direction.”
Serving my school was the reason I chose to apply for a student government position. I’m outgoing, kind of a smart Alek, and I enjoy being around people. Clubs & Organizations Director is a good fit for me. I’m also a member of the TRIO program and I am currently studying psychology. I’ve known that psychology was my passion since Silence of the Lambs came out in 1991. I enjoy school. While it is challenging sometimes, I like it. I have made a lot of friends here, and the learning happens both in and out of the classroom.
From 1993 until 2010, I was homeless and on drugs. In 2009, I started attending college in California, even though I was still on the streets. School was where I received the assistance I needed. The nurse’s office gave me a coupon for lunch every day. Even here, there are a number of students who live in their car. The lunch program is a program that I would love to be able to implement at LCC. Because of school, in 2010, I turned my back on the streets, put myself in rehab, and stayed in programs until they were completed. There is a way out. I want to be able to be there for others at school. If I have the chance to help someone else, that is how I would like to contribute.
My name is David Adegbami, I am an international student from Belize and I am currently studying Mechanical Engineering at LCC.
Ever since I started high school, I knew I had wanted to do engineering, and during my 3rd grade of high school, the inspiration of designing and building was birthed within me, so I immediately decided that I was going to pursue engineering as a career. Engineering and Technology subjects continue to be on demand because they develop key skills employers all over that the world looks for. I believe that pursuing engineering as a career, will provide me the opportunity to help others. Making myself available and proactive in assisting others, will allow me professionally, to create room for fulfillment of destiny. Over past couple of years, I was involved in different activities such as playing soccer, teaching hip hop dance and doing mission trips both in Belize and abroad.
I am very excited to be a part of the student government and I believe that my contribution will make a positive impact, and will allow others to see their true potential in pursing their dreams in life.
Hi! My name is Kaylee Florek and I am the Finance Director for the 2019-20 school year. I am so excited to be a part of ASLCC!
I was born in Longview, WA and have lived in Castle Rock, WA all my life. Growing up in such a rural and beautiful area has led me to appreciate the outdoors and all of the fun activities that it has to offer. A few things that I enjoy include hiking, kayaking, learning about history, and trivia. Some trivia about me is I love spicy chicken, lemonade, a good bargain, and my favorite animal is a cow.
I am the first person in my family to attend college and it is very exciting to start this next chapter of my life. Science has always been something that has intrigued me and I plan to apply my interests into a degree in biology. After LCC I will complete my bachelor’s degree at George Fox University in Newberg, OR.
Through ASLCC I hope to continue to grow as an individual and develop strong leadership skills.
We are going to have a great year!
