Meet Vicente Ortiz

Reason for running:

Hello MCC Thunderbirds! My name is Vicente Ortiz, and I want to be your 2021-2022 Student Body President. I've been at Mesa Community College since Fall 2017 as a dually-enrolled high school student. I am currently on track to become trilingual, taking courses in Spanish and American Sign Language(ASL) to better engage with our diverse community. I am an active leader on campus, speaking at MCC's Civic Action Hours; presenting at the New Faculty Experience Training; participating in a professional opportunity to serve on an MCC hiring committee; receiving moderator training by the MCCCD Director of Community Engagement; tabling at the MCC Student Success Fair; serving on the MCC Community Engagement Advisory Board; serving as MCC's 2021-2022 Newman Civic Fellow, and many more! In my community, I have served as a 2020 Census Ambassador for the City of Mesa, as an Americorp member with Mesa United Way, a local nonprofit agency. I have also served as the Chief Recruitment and Development Officer for Phi Theta Kappa, an international honor society, and received training as a certified deputy registrar. Over the years, I earned many awards for my servant-leadership including, the Excellence in Service award, MCCCD Chancellors Civic Medallion nominee, and a 2x MCC Service Scholar. I hope my leadership experience demonstrates that I am committed to serving students and clubs on campus. Over the years, I have built strong relationships with MCC administration, faculty, staff, and clubs. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are at the heart of Mesa Community College and will continue to create an inclusive and vibrant learning community where everyone is supported to achieve success. Through service, research, and advocacy, I will strive to implement effective mechanisms for creating lasting change on my campus. I promise to inspire, ensure access, and empower the action of all students at MCC. I will ensure that student's voices are heard, and I will always encourage them to speak up about changes they want to see around campus. Please Vote Vicente Ortiz as your next Student Body President.

Community Involvement:

2020 Icount City of Mesa Census Ambassador, Two-time Americorp member with Mesa United Way, Feed My Starving Children Volunteer, United Food Bank volunteer.

Meet Galya Ochoa

Reason for running:

I want to run again for VP of communications because communicating with our students is the most crucial part of this board. The more we spread the word and create excitement for our events, the better turn out we'll see. I want to keep everyone as informed as we possibly can while creating visually appealing digital content.

Community Involvement:

In LUCHA, I've had the pleasure of doing some incredible community work. I've participated in press conferences, been interviewed, held rallies and helped register people to vote. Being a part of the community is something that is very important to me. Aside from being in LUCHA (which works both in school and out) I manage a non-profit dance group. We are called Ballet Folklorico Fuego de Phoenix. We perform for hundreds of people to teach them the beauty of our traditions through dance!

Special Interests:

My hobbies include making music, playing video games, dancing, and making handmade jewelry.

ASMCC Organizational Structure

The Executive Board consists of four officers elected by the student body each spring. They include, President, Executive Vice President, Vice President of Communication, and Vice President of Fiscal Affairs. The Executive Board is responsible for the management, administration and appoints necessary staff to facilitate the goals of ASMCC.

ASMCC Student Senate represents the voice of the student membership, and ensures that the wishes of the ASMCC membership are published and distributed. The legislative and specified fiscal power of ASMCC resides within Student Senate. Student Senate allocates funds to various clubs on campus as well as programs that further develop the intellectual, social, physical, personal, and leadership potential of all ASMCC Students.

The Student Court consists of five Student Justices; including one Chief Justice. The Student Court has jurisdiction over grievances of ASMCC members arising under the Constitution, Case law, and Bylaws. They also have appellate jurisdiction to review decisions of the Election Committee.
