Hood Community College, and part of the Associated Student Government, I have been exposed to many new experiences, people, ideas, perspectives and backgrounds.

    Kenneth Mendoza

    My name it Kenneth Mendoza and I am running for the President of Associated Students of Mt. Hood Community College. As the former President of Portland Community College (PCC) Dental Assisting Program, I was responsible, organized, reliable, motivated, passionate, and punctual with my classmates. Being the youngest with the least amount of experience in a leadership role was a challenge. However, I made up for what I lacked in, with my passion, dedication, and a positive attitude. It was also a positive experience working with people of various backgrounds, age, and different points of view. It was an honor being the President for the Dental Assisting Program at PCC and to be able to demonstrate my ability as a leader for a group. I am also currently the lead Dental Assistant where I work and I use the leadership skills I have acquired throughout this academic year to implement and grow as a leader. Moreover, I can also say that I have a years’ worth of experience in the Associated Student Government here at Mt. Hood Community College (MHCC) as the Legislative Affairs Representative. I have gained and polished my leadership skills to ease my transition to be the next President of the Associated Student Government here at MHCC to represent and empower each and every single student that attends or plans to attend MHCC. My goal is to fulfill student’s desire by cooperating with other members in Associated Student Government and bring diverse cultures together to feel like we are connecting with one another at the college.
