Ryan Beltran was elected to serve as the Student Trustee for the 2012/2013 school year. Ryan served as a senator for the Associated Student Government (ASG) during the 2011/12 school year and as a student at-large for the 2010/11 school year. He is also the President of the Associated Student Political Science Club.
Political science and civic engagement drives Ryan's determination for MiraCosta College to be more politically aware and active. His leadership skills to do so stem from his creation and presidency of the Political Science Club, the Emerging Leaders Institute, and the two years already served on ASG.
Ryan, a California local, graduated from Oceanside High School and hopes to transfer to UC Berkeley in fall 2013. He is majoring in political science and history with a minor in philosophy, and is planning a career in environmental law.
