Communications & Public Affairs Assistant
Associated Students, Inc.
Officer Attends Leadership Seminar
Carson, CA – Associated
Students, Inc. Student Activities Commissioner Keyoshia Ray
was among 28 student leaders from throughout the California
State University system who took part in Leon & Sylvia
Panetta Institute for Public Policy’s Eight Annual
Student Leadership Seminar earlier this month.
The eight-day seminar
featured topics on leadership as it relates to local politics,
business and economics,
as well such courses as “Leadership and Crisis from
the Congressional Perspective” and “Students
Attitudes Towards Policies and Public Service.” A cross
section of local, regional and national leaders, in both
the private and public sectors, served as guest speakers,
including former U.S. Secretary of Transportation Nom Mineta
and former California Secretary of State Bruce McPherson.
Ray, who will be entering her third year at California State
University, Dominguez Hills in the fall as a communications
major, has been involved in student government since she
was in high school in Arizona. Taking on a leadership role
is her social activism, her way of making a difference, she
“I felt that if I wanted to see change, I had to not
just sit and complain, but get involved and create the change,” said
Recently elected vice president of academic affairs, Ray
said she was glad to be invited to the seminar.
Institute was a great experience. I learned a number of
great things that
will help me to become a better
leader. I wish that all the leaders on campus were able to
attend such a prestigious leadership seminar.
Located on the California State University, Monterey Bay
campus, the Panetta Institute was established in 1998 as
a non-partisan center for the study of public policy. It
serves the entire CSU system, providing students with a
number of opportunities, such as the leadership seminar,
to study government, politics and public policy.
