Hernandez named student trustee at Mt. SAC in Walnut

Mt. San Antonio College student Bruno Hernandez was sworn in as the new student trustee for the 2011-12 academic year during the Mt. SAC Board of Trustees meeting on July 25. As student trustee, the 22-year-old Hernandez will offer the student perspective on policy issues before Mt. SAC’s governing board. He will have only an advisory vote.

A resident of La Puente, Martinez is a biology major. He has been part of the college’s Honor Program and has been active with Mt. SAC’s student government and the Accounting Club for the past year-and-a-half.

Martinez helped establish the college’s chapter of Rotaract, the Rotary International youth program. After he graduates from Mt. SAC, he plans to transfer to UCLA as a biology major and eventually go to medical school.
