Hey everyone! My name is Ronald Wicks and I am very excited to be EdRisingCA’s first Southern California Region Representative. I am a Junior at Harbor Teacher Preparation Academy (HTPA). I am founder and president of HTPA’s EdRising Chapter. HTPA is a middle college designed for students who have an interest in the education field and provides them the opportunity to concurrently earn a high school diploma and an Associate Arts degree. I am apart of other organizations such as Youth & Government (Y&G), National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), Health Occupation Student Association (HOSA), and Pomona Academy for Youth Success (PAYS). I plan to use the knowledge I’ve learned from these programs to advance communication and collaboration between the EdRising Chapters in Southern California.
As the Southern California Region Representative, I will assist with planning, organization, facilitation and supervision of regional and state conferences. I hope to make this year’s EdRising California program more exciting for all chapters in Southern California!
