JR Siperly, PresidentPosition: ASCC President
High School attended: Adna
Hobbies/Interests: I love to fish! Rain or shine I love to spend every weekend at the river looking to hook a massive fish. My other hobbies are hanging out with friends, wrestling, coaching, and hunting.
I came to Centralia College because it was close to home and was more economical to my parentís budget. I have always heard great things about Centralia College on how it better prepares anyone to go back into the work force or go to a four year university. After I receive my basic AA I will be transferring over to Eastern Washington University to continue following my dream on becoming a Special Educational Teacher where I hope I can motivate anyone to continue following their passion.
Centralia College is helping me better reach my goal by preparing me for a four year college. I graduated from Adna High School in 2012 where I was very active during my high school years. Some of the sports and activities that I was in was wrestling, football, Boy Scouts, and ASB President. My senior year I received my Eagle Scout Award, one of the highest achievements that any scout could ever receive; I also was a State participant for wrestling.

The welcoming atmosphere of Centralia College is what really drew me in. From the first step you take on campus you really do feel like a part of the college experience! It is hard to find a college that has both an uplifting sense of community and truly admired academic platform, but thatís what we have here! Go Trailblazers!
Centralia College was a great place to start my long path to my career. The wonderful programs, advisors, and professors have thoroughly prepared me for a University, and even for the job market. My experience at the college has helped me narrow down my desired careers and has shown me the path on how to get there.

High School attended: Centralia high school in 2006
Hobbies/Interests: When I am not in class or doing homework I love to shop, decorate specialty cakes and take road trips to wherever.
I chose to come to Centralia College after attending SPSCC. I heard that Centralia had great success in graduating students; so I then transferred to the number one community college in Washington.
Centralia College is helping me reach my goals through all the programs and degrees they have to offer, along with the help of the facility and staff. They are simply amazing! With this kind of support how could you not succeed here!?

High School attended: Adna
Hobbies/interests: Horseback riding, Puddle-jumping, Singing, Dancing, Hanging out with children, chatting about Jesus Christ
I was homeschooled up until last year when I started attending Centralia College as a Running Start student. All three of my older siblings went through Centralia College and really enjoyed it. I chose to come here because it was close to home and a great opportunity to finish high school and get my AA degree at the same time. I can pursue subjects here that I couldnít teach myself at home. It was also an opportunity to make connections with people who have totally different backgrounds than I do. It has taught me a lot.
After I graduate Iím hoping to transfer to a Bible college in order to get a degree in biblical studies and pursue childrenís ministry in another country. I went to Indonesia during the summer of 2012 and loved getting to know the people and learning the culture. Iím very interested in communication, especially with people from different cultures and Iíve had lots of opportunities to cultivate those skills here at Centralia College. Every classroom is filled with people from different backgrounds and cultures and lots of chances to learn and grow through making connections and building relationships. There are also many different classes that teach communication or cultural differences. Iím enjoying learning skills here that I will use for the rest of my life.
Anamaria Abarca, Senator for Student RelationsPosition: Senator for Student Relations
High School attended: Centralia High School
Hobbies/interests: Singing, and anything else to do with music, knitting and spinning, baking, camping, fishing, and anything to do with my millions of pets!
I chose Centralia College so that I could fulfill my high school requirements through running start and study more advanced music.
Centralia College has helped me become a more structured and dedicated student with classes that require much more effort than in high school. It has also taught me to be a better leader specifically through student government work and training. These things plus the vast musical opportunities I have had through the college have helped prepare me to reach my goal of pursuing a higher education in music.
