Meet Shanell

A native San Franciscan and proud graduate of City College, I’ve spent the past 4 years fighting to save our City College from a near loss of accreditation and closure. In doing so, I engaged everyone from members of the community to elected officials during my two terms as Student Trustee. I travelled from San Francisco to Washington D.C., and worked tirelessly alongside students, faculty and classified staff to ensure our City College remained open and accredited. As a former foster youth myself, I know that community college offers an affordable and accessible pipeline to higher education to lift individuals out of poverty and toward a brighter future. As a Trustee, I will work hard to ensure the needs of the students, faculty and staff are the Board’s top priority when making decisions about the future of City College.. I believe an accountable, accessible and diverse City College benefits us all and I’m ready to take my 4 year fight to the next level. I’m ready to serve our City, improve our College and most of all, restore our community’s faith in City College. I’m ready to be our voice for City College.
