Floyd (Zhaowei) Chen
My name is Zhaowei Chen and you can also call me Floyd. I come from China and major in aviation. I love playing the piano which I have learn for 9 years, and I also take piano class in GRC. During my free time, I'd like go to the gym, play basketball and spend some time to work out.
I joined the student body at my first quarter as a student senator, and I also worked for the Public Relationship Department. There is no denying that the senator experience is the best time of my student life. I enjoy work on the student events, all those student events is brilliant! But there is still room for improvement. So I just want to find an opportunity to make our collage better.
During my time as the president, I will focus on the outside sport field construction. I want to change the idle land inside our main campus into a sport field, which is open to all of the students.
I could never be the best but I will be the hardest! If you can some questions or I do something wrong, feel free to let me know!
Rosie (Omjee) Son
ASGRC Vice President
My name is Rosie (Omjee) Son. I am from South Korea and majoring in international relations. I have a deep interest in learning new languages, because language and culture are intimately linked together. I believe I can understand various cultures exclusively from learning new languages.
Currently, I serve as co-president of a peer volunteer organization and a vice president of Korean cultural club. These experiences have inspired me to dive deeper into community involvement and have given me the know-how to do so competently.
As a hopeful for the vice president position of our student body, I would like to create an open system of communication in which all of the students can be involved in or understand the very administration process that runs our school. I will embrace students to opinions and aim to empower students to approach their desires and goals with active enthusiasm, knowing they have a student government standing firmly behind them.
I will work tirelessly with students and faculty members to encourage interest in the events or services on campus and to provide a space for their opinions and feedback to be heard.
ASGRC Chief Justice
Hello, I am Veronica Chaplin. I am the Chief Justice of Green River College for the 2018-2019 school year. I ran for Chief Justice because I wanted to be more involved here on campus in student life and events. Also, I care deeply about the people on campus and the clubs that are here; I myself am a member of Phi Theta Kappa, Black Student Union, Creative Writing Club and Environmental Club. Green River is a place that allows every student the chance to feel like they belong; I have found mine by being a part of various clubs on campus and now in student government. GRC is a great place to be!
