Rachel Mullen

Student Representative, American River College

After serving in the United States Marine Corps for four years as a truck driver and a Battalion Training Clerk; responsible for orchestrating and recording training activity within the Battalion, Rachel Mullen became a full time student at American River College, majoring in Automotive Technology. Although a poor outlook on school was the driving factor in her enlisting in the service, with the help of the values and ideals instilled in her during her time in service, she entered college with a renewed outlook on the importance of education, especially in the trades. Having struggled to find a job after her completion of her military service, she believes that the creation of jobs and a stable economy are imperative to the continued success of new graduates joining the work force and hopes to make a positive difference on the Board of Governors Task Force.

  • Give Priority for Jobs and the Economy
  • Make Room for Jobs and the Economy
  • Promote Student Success
  • Innovate for Jobs and the Economy
