Christiano Solano - Supreme
Court Chief Justice
the Supreme Court Chief Justice for ASRCC I work with each and every one
involved in student government as a body that collectively aims to secure and
promote student's success on campus. My goal as Chief Justice for fall 2015 is
to enable and establish an environment where students feel they have the
necessary tools and information to excel in their studies. Such tasks are
planned to be worked through and achieved by holding open forums that will be
hosted this semester, where all students can be a part of! Open forums that
have been projected to occur during this semester will include topics that deal
with international students and immigrant students that attend community college. Open forums dealing with student involvement on our campus, with clubs
and pathway progress that are offered. Also any other issues that students may
want to bring up are welcome for discussion and possible resolutions. Overall I
aspired or progress and to allow for a student body at the Supreme Court level
to serve the students and continually provide changes that students seek and
need. I have been active in many community service programs throughout the city. I have been a part of ROTC, aqcuired military based discipline and leadership traits. I also enjoy an atmosphere where teamwork and innovation is elicited. I am a history major and plan to attend law school in the future. My passion lies on helping others and I hope I can be of service to my fellow students.
