Elliot, a Grossmont College student whose broad range of study includes American Sign Language; mythology and world religions; and public policy and administration, said she looks forward to engaging student voices and getting them more involved in their educational futures. She has been active with the Associated Students of Grossmont College and the Student Senate for California Community Colleges.
Elliot said rising enrollment fees, the availability of classes and textbook costs as the greatest concerns of today’s students.
“The biggest challenge I envision for this year, given the fiscal condition of the state, will be ensuring that the district is able to provide quality and affordable education for students,” Elliot said.
In addition to student government and advocacy, the San Diego native and Valhalla High School graduate has participated in Grossmont College’s theater program as well as in community theater. Professionally, she hopes to pursue a career in deaf education or as a college instructor.
