Randell Rueda '11 | UCMAA Board Secretary
Why did you apply for the UC Merced Alumni Association Board of Directors?
I applied for the UC Merced Alumni Association Board of Directors after many years of convincing from some former and current Board Members. What finally pushed me forward was the realization that I could stay connected with our alma mater while leading initiatives and mentoring current students. We all coalesce in this space as representatives of our respective networks, and through unified efforts, we do our best to positively impact our fellow Alumni and the community.
How do you balance being on the UCMAA Board with your personal and professional committees?
I balance being on the UCMAA Board with both my personal and professional commitments by always seeing Board activities as refreshing and impactful. In the select times we congregate (virtually or in person), I can always look forward to catching up with fellow Alumni and paying it forward to those we serve.
