Kenneth Meador won the election for chairman of The Leadership Council, OCCC’s equivalent to student council, on March 20.

TLC is comprised of representatives from each campus club, plus several at-large members.

“It’s a good opportunity,” Meador said.

“I’ll do my best to serve the school because I appreciate the opportunities I’ve had here.” Meador represented College Democrats this year.

“I chose to run because I love OCCC and wanted to serve and the chair seemed like a good way to do that.”

He will assume his leadership role in the fall.

He said his goals are to support the student body and provide solid leadership.

Meador said he is proud of his work with College Democrats and their voter registration drive this past year.

The group just broke the 100 mark in membership, Meador said.

For co-chair, Cadmus Surrell might have been running unopposed but that didn’t stop him from asking for votes.

“I’m going call it a vote of confidence,” Surrell said.

Surrell served as the director of research this year.

Jorge Krzyzaniak is the new 2011 researcher. Krzyzaniak represented Advocates of Peace this year.

“I’ve always been an advocate for those who can’t be heard,” said Krzyzaniak

Rico Smith won the election for the office of community and public relations.

“I’ll think critically about each event and how to most effectively use all the resources we have to promote the event,” Smith said.

Smith represented the Oklahoma Collegiate Legislature this year.

TLC serves as a resource for the Vice President for Enrollment and Student Services and the rest of the President’s Cabinet, providing open, honest feedback about all aspects of the campus environment, according to its website.

Each club on campus has one vote. TLC meets every other Thursday in the Student Life Conference Room.
