Lenoi Carter is the student representative on OCC’s Board of Trustees for the 2015-16 academic year. Each year the Board of Trustees includes one student member who attends monthly meetings and participates in all votes. “It’s a tremendous honor. I like the idea I will be representing all of the students,” he said.
Carter came to OCC from Manchester High School in Jamaica. “When I was in high school I was good in math and physics. I decided to pursue a degree related to engineering.” Carter is enrolled in the College’s Engineering Science major and on track to graduate in May 2016. He’s done well enough in class to earn membership in international honor society Phi Theta Kappa.
Carter plans to bring his unique perspective to board meetings and be an active member. One of his priorities will be to help create parking specifically for motorcycles. “When I pull into the parking lot and am looking for a space I’ll see one I think is empty. When I get up close to it I realize a motorcycle is in it. We should have motorcycle specific parking spaces close to buildings.”
