Each year the student body of Brookdale Community College elects a Graduate Trustee to serve as a voting member of the College Board of Trustees. The person elected will serve a one-year term of office beginning the first month after graduation. The Graduate Trustee serves as an important conduit between the students and the Board, and his/her participation is valued.
The Graduate Trustee is responsible for reviewing all board materials prior to the meetings; maintain strict confidentiality (as needed), attend and participate in monthly, evening Board of Trustees’ meetings; participate on one or two Board committees, which meet monthly/semi-monthly, and attend Board Professional Development sessions.
This year’s candidates are: Ademir Segura, James Hackett, Jean R Desire, Laura Ostar, Layla Taqi, Melissa Kerr, Paul Geissler and Tyler Verdoni. Please click on the candidate names to read their personal statements.
