Brandon D. Brown
Hello San Bernardino Valley College students. I am your student body President. I am twenty three years old, and entering my third year here at San Bernardino Valley College. While in office, I am making it my prerogative to ensure that every dollar student government spends has the largest impact on the maximum amount of students possible. Many administrators and faculty members are quick to refer to me and my constituents as student leaders, but it is paramount that you students do not make the same mistake. We are not are not your leaders, in any fashion, but rather an advocacy group, another resource you can utilize on your path to an education. I have a laid back style of leadership; don't hesitate to stop by my office with any comments, concerns, or suggestions.
As a recognizable, active student of San Bernardino Valley College and an active member of the community, I dedicate my time creating smiles in the hearts of all those around me. Working for the City Of Colton as a Lifeguard and Sr. Recreation Leader, I have developed a unique set of skills that allows me to maintain a professional work ethic as well as having fun doing it. As a Liberal Arts Major, my hopes one day is to become a teacher and educate students in the community where I grew up in. I look forward to working hard and improve life for the students of SBVC.
