Introducing the New CCCD Student Trustee: Joanna Navarro

Joanna NavaroThe student trustee for the Compton Community College District (CCCD) is Compton resident Joanna Navarro, who was elected by the students of El Camino College Compton Center to represent them on the District’s Board. Navarro is also the current Associated Student Body (ASB) president for the 2014-15 academic year.

As the student trustee, Navarro will discuss student-related issues and receive all materials presented to the members of the CCCD Board of Trustees, except for closed session issues. It is also the student trustee’s responsibility to make regular reports to the Associated Student Body and at other public forums held on behalf of students as it relates to the business of the District.

Navarro is so committed to being a “voice” for her community and ECC Compton Center that it became her motivation to run for ASB president. “I have the dedication, interest and fortitude to have the students’ and my opinions heard,” said Navarro. “Being aware and proactive about the things going on at your campus and within your community are very important, and being ASB president allows me that opportunity.”

Navarro believes that serving as ASB president and the student trustee will enable for her to find better ways to promote the activities and events at ECC Compton Center so students and community members can take full advantage of them. She also wants to improve the cultural activities and strengthen the Inter Club Council in an effort to promote student involvement and a balanced campus life.

Navarro is on track to graduate from ECC Compton Center in spring 2015 with an associate degree in science. She plans to transfer to a four-year university in fall 2015, where she will major in physics and minor in environmental engineering. She is working toward a future career as an engineer.
