Brandon D. Brown
Hello San Bernardino Valley College students. I am your student body President. I am twenty two years old, and entering my second 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.

Executive Assistant Director
Hello, I am Executive Assistant for Associated Student Government (ASG) and President of the Spanish Club. My road to higher education began here at Valley College in Spring of 2010. I became a member of the Spanish Club my first semester and later I took a position as an officer. I really enjoy being involved with campus activities. I have opportunities to meet plenty of great people and make new friends. I am proud and excited to be part of ASG for the 2013-2014 year. I hope to bring more student involvement with the campus and leave behind a foundation where students know they have a voice. My life goal is to become and educator, I want to be a bilingual elementary teacher. I feel education is where a person can impact students the most and have the ability to make a positive influence on a student’s life.
Administrative Support Services Director
This is my second term to serve San Bernardino Valley College (SBVC) students. Last year I worked with Vice President of Administrative Services, Scott Stark, to provide adequate lighting in all area on of the campus including parking lots. Vice President Stark and I also worked together to have cameras installed in area we deemed necessary for the safety of evening students. In addition, Brita water fountains with water bottle fillers shall be installed at six locations so that students will be able to stay properly hydrated while on campus for free. Furthermore, I worked with the SBVC Transfer Center to give students an opportunity to visit schools in Northern California (like U.C. Berkeley), so that they may be able to broaden their perspectives in education. I also advocated adding more classes at the district board meetings.
This year I plan to continue what was started and so much more! I plan to find ways to make SBVC more energy efficient, while preserving the beauty of this newly built campus. I hope that you will come and speak with me if you have any concerns about student safety, accreditation, matriculation, graduation, or any other administrative related issues.

Instructional Support Services Director
I want to start off by saying I am here for the students. I graduated in 2009 where I previously held a position in the Associated Student Government (ASG). I value my time and I considered myself to be a valuable asset to my constituents and student government. All while I was in ASG I sought to perform duties that would benefit the students. I wanted to ensure student funds were properly allocated. I feel that with my return, I can continue to make ensure that funding is benefiting the students and the school as much as possible. With me being here I feel as if I can truly be "By the students, for the students".
