Candidate Statements


Subber Dhillon

Hello everyone! My name is Subber Dhillon and I am running for Student Government President. Although this is only my second semester at Cerro Coso, I’ve developed a strong connection to the school and its students; being a part of the SGCC has played a major role in that. Throughout my life, I have always had a passion for leadership and because of this, I held countless officer positions such as Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer, during my high school career. Additionally, for the past semester and a half, I was the Secretary of the SGCC Senate and was given the opportunity to work closely with many members of the executive board. Seeing how much they cared about improving campus life, and making the voices of Cerro Coso known, made me realize how badly I wanted to do the same. Joining the Senate further solidified my passion for helping the community and also inspired me to seize the opportunity to do something bigger than myself. That is my motivation for running for running for president. By being in this position, I’ll have the platform to represent you all and make a difference for the better. I can’t wait to do just that.

Vice President

Nadia Khatib

My name is Nadia Khatib and I am currently a senator in SGCC and I have completed two semesters as a senator. The aspect that caught my eye most about student government is their desire to foster a positive environment for the students with their emphasis on improving student life. In providing services and events to the student body, I will make it my utmost priority to listen and surface the concerns and needs of the students . During my first year at Cerro Coso, I was able to see the diversity of our campus being harnessed.  I love working alongside a diverse group of talented individuals and I hope to promote a surrounding where diversity is celebrated.Our current SGCC e-board has paved the way for facilitating an encouraging environment and as Vice President I hope to continue that and surpass any expectations.
