Arsenio Lopez is the Outstanding Two-Year Student for 2012
The Pierce College Puyallup Office of Student Life is very proud to announce that Arsenio Lopez III was presented the Outstanding Two-year Student Award at the 2012 National Association of Campus Activities West Regional Conference.
The Outstanding Two-year Student Award is given annually to one student in the western states who demonstrates excellence and exhibits organizational skills, outstanding dedication to campus activities, and leadership ability at a two-year institution. Arsenio is currently serving as the diversity coordinator for the Pierce Puyallup Student Activities Board.
“Arsenio Soblechero Lopez III is an exemplary student leader who should be recognized for his hard work to bring critical issues to campus programming as well as his ongoing efforts to connect with students face to face,” said Sonja Morgan, student programs coordinator.
Before becoming the diversity coordinator for the Pierce College Puyallup Office of Student Life, Arsenio started the First Nations Club on campus to engage and educate students around Native American and Indigenous cultures. He also represented Pierce College as a delegate to the 2012 Washington State Students of Color Conference and applies this experience to his current role as diversity coordinator and president of the First Nations Club.
“Arsenio has already brought many transformative opportunities to students this fall quarter, including leading a delegation to the Race and Pedagogy Criminal Justice Conference, collaborating with the ESL department on a Multicultural Fair and Fashion Show, which brought students from all different backgrounds together to celebrate their traditions and accomplishments, and creating a Veteran’s Wall of Honor that was presented to a local veteran’s home and featured on King 5 news,” said Morgan. “What truly sets Arsenio apart, however, is his a unique sense of humor, a contagious laugh and an undying positive attitude, all of which greatly contribute to a welcoming and affirming campus environment.”
