Short Story About Me

My extensive work experience covers working for the Los Angeles Community District for over 26 years.   Through my work at multiple community colleges including East Los Angeles College, Huntington Park Satellite Campus, Los Angeles Valley College, Los Angeles Mission College, and Los Angeles City College I have seen firsthand how tax payer and student interests are not represented the way they should by the person who holds Seat #1 on the board.

Educational Background

Masters Degree in Public Administration from California State University of Northridge.

Bachelors of Science Degree in Political Science from University of California Santa Barbara

Associate Degree in Liberal Arts from East Los Angeles College.

More About R. Richard Cuevas

I dedicated my Masters Degree in Public Administration from California State University of Northridge in Public Administration to my mother for always believing in me.

The nine colleges of the Los Angeles Community College District are some of the most important institutions in our region. Educating over 120,000 students, they provide one of the clearest pathways to economic independence and a chance at a better life.  I know this is true because that is exactly what community college did for me.  

I am a first-generation college graduate.  After an Associated Degree in Liberal Arts from East Los Angeles College, I completed Bachelors of Science Degree in Political Science from University of California Santa Barbara and earned my Masters Degree in Public Administration from California State University of Northridge.

Today, I am a husband with two young children, and I owe it all to the start I got at my community college.  I am living a life I never dreamed possible when I was a student.  Now, I want to use everything I have learned over the past 26 years to help Los Angeles’s community college students reach their full potential.
