Supreme Court Officers

Argie Hill - Supreme Court Chief Justice

 My name is Argie “A.J.” Hill and I will be your Supreme Court Chief Justice for the 2014-2015 academic school year. As Supreme Court Chief Justice, my goal is to ensure balance within the Associated Students of Riverside City College (ASRCC) by promoting political efficacy, providing organizational management, and ensuring due process within the Government. As a part of the Supreme Court, it is my honor, and privilege, to highlight important topics that affect student life on campus. I intend to make student elections and the provision of incentives for students to learn and participate in the political process a focal point during our school year. I encourage all students at Riverside City College (RCC) to participate on campus and advocate for the rights and opportunities granted to them.

 

Sammie Ayoub - Justice

 As a Supreme Court Justice, my duties are to abide by the Constitution of the ASRCC as well as remain unbiased and impartial to all hearings for the sake of maintaining order, which all students must abide by. As a Justice, I am open to hearing the opinions of others because I am a firm believer in freedom of speech and being open minded towards all points of view. I am happy to help all students at RCC and am grateful that the ASRCC allow me to serve them as a Justice through the political process of ASRCC.

 

Tandy Dang - Justice

 As a student at RCC, I have come to know many of the struggles of college life. Although a junior college, RCC students also have unmet needs, and it has become my goal to assist in improving the quality of life for as many of our students as I can. Working together with other motivated individuals inspires me to do things I never thought I had ever been capable of, and it truly warms my heart knowing that there are others who also care about the college and its people. There is a lot of work to be done, but by working together with other students, staff, faculty, and administrators, so much has already been made possible.

 

Thomas Lee - Justice

 

Thomas Lee is a first year student at RCC, studying towards transferring to a University of California (UC) college. Likewise, Thomas is an assistant coach for King High School's Mock Trial team and is part of the Community for Academic Progress (CAP) Program at RCC.

Hello Tigers! Many blessings on your steps down the academic path. I hope to be able to meet many of you in serving as your Supreme Court Justice for the 2014-2015 Academic School Year. I am a former biology student who now seeks to receive a degree in Math and Science, with the possibility of transferring into Physics. "Learn to teach," this is my slogan for 2015. This is my first year at RCC and I am very excited to engage in studying and debating in Riverside. The next two years may pass quickly or with struggle, either way, let us face the semesters together in scholarship.
