Junior Class Presidency

Oscar Escobar Rodriguez and Michael King

Why vote for us? We think these statements ask more for our personal convictions than being superfluous with words.

Michael: “I have always been the type of person that thrives when I am working in a group setting. I want to be an advocate for those with a similar disposition. I also want to make sure everyone feels welcome in the study room and free to work collaboratively. I sincerely hope that everyone who wants to is able to find a study group where they feel like a valuable contributor. Most of all, I want everyone to feel like they can be successful in ACME.”

Oscar: I have always thought of myself as that one guy that is not the best at something but works hard and tries various times, so that in the end, he does okay, maybe even well. I would like for others to feel and experience the same, inasmuch as that is possible. I think of leadership as just a public announcement of being a friend to all, serving others, and being held accountable to doing the best for those you represent.

Collectively, we want to be advocates for you as well as ensure that everyone can be heard, helped, welcomed, and above all feel successful in ACME. We promise to our best to help you and make the laborious and long road laid ahead of us feel easier. We look forward to sharing the load together and the laughs that will come along the way.
