Zoey Lane

Educational background and future plans:

"I obtained my high school diploma from Havana High School. While in high school I took a dual credit class through Spoon River College. I absolutely loved my teacher and class. It was one of my favorite parts of high school, and I knew I wanted to transition to SRC. "Now that I am attending SRC I am working towards my associates degree in Biological Sciences. After SRC I plan to attend SIUE to get my bachelors degree. After my Bachelors degree I hope to be accepted into their dental program to pursue my dream of becoming a dentist and working for my family's dentistry business.".

Reasons for running for student trustee:

"Becoming Student Trustee has been a goal of mine since before I actually started to attend SRC. I love the idea of being able to have a voice for our student body. As Student Trustee, I would make sure students are enjoying the activities and overall student life on campus. Students are the reason we all come to school and I would love to be an asset, voice, and audience for students like you."
