-Secretary: Malyssa Castro, Action, Policy
-Treasurer: Kyanna Tenorio, BAFC
-Ryan Calvo, College Council, Policy
-Daisie Camacho-Renguul, Policy
-Jean Castro, PROAC (in lieu of Diana), Action

“I’m excited to serve as a senator for the staff,” said Rodgers. “Our vision is to continue the work of increasing staff morale. We have plans to support the college’s mission, to build up one another, and to have a great time working at NMC.”
“I would like to congratulate the newest members of NMC’s Staff Senate,” NMC interim president Frankie Eliptico said. “The new senators all possess extensive experience and are all very much committed to NMC’s mission. I look forward to working and collaborating with the newly elected staff senators.” (NMC)
