The 2014-15 Student Senate
Charlene, Student Senate President, graduated with an Associates of Arts Degree for Lorain County Community College and a Bachelor’s Degree from Youngstown State in May of 2014. She is currently working towards her Master’s Degree through the University Partnership Program at LCCC. In addition to her studies, Charlene is the President for the Student Senate for the 2014-2015 school year. Charlene has also served as a volunteer at the Nord Center on the rape crisis line. There, she has logged over 600 hours working every weekend for the past two years.
Charlene decided to become a Student Senator to have the opportunity to meet students and be an avid voice for her fellow students. She also looks forward to helping her fellow students become more aware of the many exciting programs, activities, and opportunities available to them as Lorain County Community College students.
Zaineb, Student Senate Vice President, is an international student from Dubai and was originally born in Pakistan. She is studying Chemical Engineering here at LCCC and is planning on graduating with her Associate of Applied Science Degree. Afterwards, she plans to transfer to CSU to continue working on her Bachelor’s Degree.
Zaineb joined the Student Senate to be the voice of students and to get the students more involved with college than they are right now. Her goal is get the students to realize that there is more to college than classes. She feels that as a part of the student body, “we are making memories” and that one day, all they will want to do is look back on the memories made and live the college life again.
Mayaya, Student Senate Event Coordinator, is a nursing major student who is planning on earning an Associate of Science Degree; she is working with the university partnership program through the University of Akron to further earn her Bachelors in nursing as an RN.
Being an international student from Zambia, her goal is to one day become a nurse practitioner and use all the knowledge and skills she will learn into opening a medical facility in her country.
Mayaya became a student senator because she feels that it is a great opportunity to improve her leadership skills, get more involved in college and be able to voice her fellow students on matters that affect them. Her goal is to also inspire international students to get more engaged in campus activities outside of the classroom; be able to provide a cultural exchange between American students, me and my fellow international students.
Carson Moen, Student Senate Outreach Representative, is a junior in the Early College High School Program. After graduating high school in 2016, she wants to get her bachelors in Microbiology and research viruses and diseases like she does in Dr. Harry Kestler’s HIV research lab. She also plans on minoring in graphic design or video editing, which are passions of hers.
She became a senator to get students more involved in campus life and to show that school is not all work and no play, but in fact a healthy balance between the two. She wants to get students excited about attending their classes and assist in leading them to a successful future.
