Rossy Carranza, President

Program of Study: Health Sciences

“My goal for SGA is to create an environment where every student can voice their opinion and be heard. I also plan on making fun events where students can learn and make the most out of their time being a student at Laurel Ridge.”

Spencer Lombardo, Co-Vice President

Program of Study: General Studies

“One of the beautiful things about Laurel Ridge Community College is that it shares its services with several rural communities throughout Virginia. As someone who attends the Warrenton campus, I intend to use my roughly 2 years of grassroots leadership experience to ensure that EVERY campus within our student body is equally represented in a fiscally responsible fashion.”

Charles Arvie, Co-Vice President

Program of Study: Computer Science, AI/ML & Robotic & Automation certificates

“I’d like to explore the possibility of adding RFID to our student IDs, to serve a more functional purpose other than just identification.”

Avery Hammond, Secretary

Program of Study: Early Childhood Development

“A goal of mine is to bring the college community together and make sure everybody has a voice that is heard.”

John Redden, Public Relations

Program of Study: Nursing

“My main objective for the SGA is to foster greater student engagement and establish a channel for their voices to contribute to the advancement of our college.”

Bing Morgan, Senator

Program of Study: Science/Agriculture

“My goal right now is to take advantage of some underutilized common spaces on campus, and to support my peers in their projects.
