J. David Vera, of Aurora, will serve as student trustee on the Waubonsee Community College Board of Trustees for 2017 – 2018.

The student trustee is elected by the student body and serves as the liaison between the Board of Trustees and the college’s students, representing student interests at the board level.

The son of Jesse and Elma Vera, he currently resides in Pigeon Hill in Aurora, which is where he spent the majority of his childhood. A graduate of Marmion Academy, Vera has been a Boy Scout for twelve years and achieved the rank of Eagle Scout in June 2016.

At Waubonsee, Vera has served as a student senator and is finishing his first year as a chemistry major at the college. In January, he started an internship with U.S. Congressman Bill Foster.

Vera said he ran for the student trustee position because he has always had an interest in leadership and policy.

“I wish to serve as the Waubonsee Student Trustee because I want to represent the thousands of students who attend the college,” he said. “Collaboration between the students and the board is important.”
