Chino Hills High ASB is a well-recognized organization not only by students and staff at CHHS, but by programs like the California Association of Student Leaders. A select group of students from Chino Hills High ASB attended a conference put on by CASL, and for the past 11 years Chino Hills High ASB has won the Outstanding Leadership Program Award. The group of students who accepted this award on behalf of the CHHS Leadership program were Caleb Andrews, Bradley Mautz, Adam Cullen, Tessa Grotz, Mitchell Matthews, Josh Stroup, Alex Ro, Tanner Schroder, Audrey Johnstone, and Gullian Dyker. At the conference this year, Adam Cullen, the ASB President for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year, was elected to be on the board for the California Association of Student Leaders as a Southern Director.
You can join academic clubs based on your major or social club based on your hobbies or interest.

The yearlong series of events that help bond the thousands of students that attend Texas State University is what they call The Common Experience. Common Experience events include concerts, films, debates, exhibits, lectures, and even artistic performances. Famous world wide artist have come to speak to the students; for example, poet Maya Angelou, actor Edward James Olmos, and director Spike
Not only was I led by example of these things, but I had numerous opportunities to see it in Hispanic community and the church as well. As a daughter, sister, grad student and full-time employee, I have incorporated these values into my life and honored
During my high school career I have made a consistent effort to stay involved in both my school and community. Through clubs such as Key Club, National Art Honor Society, and National Honor Society I’ve been able to help out locally and globally in an abundance of ways. In Key club and NHS I am able to volunteer in traditional ways, but National Arts Honors Society allows me to contribute to my community and school in a creative way that stimulates people 's minds through art. Due to these activities having a significant impact on my life my future career options are based around what I have learned from them. I plan to attend college to study art within the marketing/communications field in the upcoming years.
I decided to interview a membership-based Asian American community organization called, Japanese American Citizens League (JACL) Pacific Southwest District. Ms. Stephanie Nitahara (Regional Director), Nancy Takayama (Business & Development Manager), and Traci Ishigo (Program Coordinator) are the main staffs who organize this district in Downtown Los Angeles, CA. The JACL follows and acknowledges to issues that embellish or endanger the civil human rights of all Americans. Their goal is to put in actions for positive social change, specifically to the Asian Pacific American community. There are over 20 different districts (also called chapters) in the United States of America and over 12,000 are members and history of leadership since 1929.
Student Council performs numerous tasks around my school that hopefully improve the school and school spirit. The most important thing Student Council has taught me is: no matter how small, a good deed can go a long way. A handful of students and myself led to the founding of Spanish Club. Sadly Spanish Club isn’t an organization any more after the sponsor moved to a different position. However, my time in Spanish Club was well spent.
One past leadership position that I held in high school was the presidential seat of National Honor Society. Through this leadership position, I’ve gained communication skills between teachers and fifty students in the organization. I’ve promoted and facilitated community service activities. I’ve also learned to engage actively with colleagues and branch out of my comfort zone, especially when it is something I am passionate about. As the president, I delegate responsibilities to board members that I worked closely with to achieve the organization’s goals.
When it comes to the Hispanic’s quinceanera I do know something things about it and then there are some things that I have learn by attending one of a close friend. I already know that a quinceanera is their version of the American “Sweet Sixteen”. I was already aware that they celebrate it by having a party with friends and family. I know that Hispanics are big on family and that a big milestone is a reason to celebrate it. I knew that it is a tradition that has been passed on from generation to generation.
I was a mentor at the Phi Theta Kappa chapter at Miami Dade College Wolfson Campus Wolf Pack Mentoring Program. In this program I was able to be a mentor to two first year Honors College students, Simonet and Samantha. This has being my most meaningful involvement in a student organization, because this was a program where I was able to make a positive impact in my peers’ life. When I started college I wished I would have had someone I could definitely count on to ask questions, study, or just talk about life as a college student, and with this program I was able to provide that to them. As a mentor I helped my mentees with choosing classes, professors, giving them advice on how to study for a test, or how to handle a service learning project.
Murals of cultural heoroes and heroines such as Cesar Chavez, Pancho Villa, Che Guevara, La Adelita and Emiliano Zapata invoke leadership and unity. Incorporated with these icons are whole scenes depicted on Chicano civil rights. Today the park is used for political and social events and every year the Latino community of San Diego, come together to celebrate its christening with music, dancing, food, and speeches of empowerment
During a recent visit, I was attracted to the spirit of the campus. More importantly, as I spoke to several students, they talked about the strong relationship between the students and professors. Being a potential business major, I was excited to read that “UCF is the cornerstone within the foundation of Orlando’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.” Beyond the school’s renowned academic programs, UCF offers me a chance to be in a comfortable environment where I fit in. If I were fortunate enough to get accepted into UCF, I would be very excited to become an active ambassador for the surf club/team. UCF’s prominent surf club/team gives me a chance to surround myself with people who are similar to who I am and my lifestyle.
I became Miss Pre-Alumni for the TSU Alumni Association, elected to be Representative-at-Large for the Student Government Association and then elected again as the Speaker of the House of Student Government Association. In my Student Government positions, I created programs to encourage tutoring within the dorms, health, and new policies for student concerns. Recently, I helped create a new policy that allows proxy voting for voting members along with adding new voting members for various reasons to be allowed to vote. Through the Student Government Association, I learned how to operate through government, create and amending policies, and become a voice for the student body. Academically I was inducted into Alpha Kappa Mu Honor Society, Upsilon Phi Delta Honor Society, Psi Chi International Honor Society, consecutively on the Dean’s List since freshman year with consecutive 4.0 GPA semesters since Sophomore year and am on track to graduate with Honors.
At my high school, most people believe that being Hispanic means you are from Mexico. As an officer in my school’s Hispanic Society, I work to educate fellow students that being Hispanic includes many nationalities and cultures. Both of my parents are from Guatemala, and my Hispanic heritage is strong. This is why I participate in Hispanic Society. Our missions are to educate others on the Latino cultures; to represent fellow Hispanic students when issues come before school administrators; and to facilitate community service efforts.
Student leaders, incoming freshman, and many other students of the North Carolina Central University (NCCU) student body gathered on Wednesday September 3, 2013 at the university Greek bowl for the annual “Meet and Greet” to engage with participants running in the Fall 2013 student government elections. Student Body President Stefan Weathers says “The Meet and Greet was a very nice event that I really feel put students out there in a way that they can connect with the student body and the university.” The event began roughly around six in the evening, which gave students enough time to be finished with classes and come and enjoy the festivities going on around campus. Sunny skies and a light breeze made it very easy for students to come
