Student Representative Governor Appointee
Alejandro Lomeli, a graduate from Santa Fe High School, is a first-generation college student currently enrolled at Long Beach City College (LBCC). Alejandro naturally became involved in student leadership at LBCC after many years of participation in student government in high school and in other clubs on campus. Within his few weeks of attending LBCC, Alejandro was appointed as the Representative of Legislative Affairs for the Associated Student Body.
After his first year at LBCC, Alejandro decided that he could do more in his role as a student leader to empower students and be a voice for those who weren’t being heard. He was elected by his peers to serve as the student member to the college district’s Board of Trustees. In his two terms as trustee, he participated in numerous committees, workshops, and professional development trainings with his peers.
As well as serving on his local student government, Lomeli is also serving as the Vice President of System Affairs (VPSA) for the Student Senate for California Community Colleges (SSCCC). The SSCCC is a nonprofit statewide organization that strives to improve student access, promote student success, engage and empower local student leaders, and enrich the collegiate experience for all California community college students. As VPSA, Lomeli oversees all statewide participatory governance student appointments, provides regular trainings on students’ decision-making rights, and tracks several initiatives affecting the community college system.
Lomeli is currently working towards a degree in Criminal Justice with hopes of joining the Long Beach Police Department, focusing specifically on community-oriented programs.
