“THE QUALITY OF LEADERSHIP, MORE THAN ANY OTHER SINGLE FACTOR, DETERMINES THE SUCCESS OR FAILURE OF AN ORGANIZATION.” – Fred Fiedler and Martin Chemers in Improving Leadership Effectiveness
The Student Leadership Committee plays an integral role in CAHE students’ academic and social life. Class representatives are selected from various cohorts and act as a liaison between the Center’s administration and fellow classmates to streamline communication, drive student engagement and participation, as well as encourage strong academic performance. With numerous student-focused events/activities taking place at CAHE throughout the year, the Student Leadership Committee provides essential organizational support and insight to help make these events successful.
The Student Leadership Committee is an excellent opportunity for students to develop their leadership skills and become actively involved in the Center’s Student Life. A Class Representative “Class Rep” is selected for each cohort to be the voice of the Student Leadership Committee. Class representatives are required to attend quarterly Thursday night meetings during the academic year. Whether one is the designated Class Representative or not, all students are encouraged to participate in Center-wide events!
Class representatives additional roles include, but are not limited to:
- Serving on Advisory Boards.
- Uniting the institution and the various healthcare programs offered.
- Helping to identify areas/policies that can be adjusted to better serve the needs of the community.
- Coordinating various charity events throughout the academic year.
- Representing the institution and various events throughout the academic year, including regularly scheduled Open Houses.
How can I become a Class Representative?
Details on how to apply for the position will be provided at orientation. All nominees will be reviewed by a committee and reps will be announced by Week 4 of their program start date.

No matter what happens in life, be good to people. Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind.
When I graduated high school in 2011, I wanted to become a social worker, so I enrolled in the human services program at SUNY Suffolk County Community College. After a couple of years, I realized this wasn’t the right path for me to take, so I took a break from school for a while. I have worked in medical receptionists’ positions for ten years now and currently work in a busy animal hospital. Having ultrasounds performed on me in the past and watching the ultrasound doctor perform various scans on canines and felines at my job, I became more and more interested in sonography and knew this would be the correct career path for me. So far during the first five weeks at CAHE, I have enjoyed everything that I have been learning, and the staff here has been very informative and professional. In the future, I hope to work as a registered cardiac sonographer in the emergency room department of a hospital.

Amanda started her college education at Quinnipiac University in 2017 majoring in DMS. She absolutely loved it, although she realized being away just personally was not for her. She transferred back home to St. Francis College (Brooklyn) and continued to major in DMS there. St. Francis is affiliated with Center for Allied Health Education and safe to say, she could not be happier with her decision.
In high school, Amanda was captain of varsity softball. She absolutely loved guiding them in plays and being involved. Amanda thinks she is approachable and can get her point across well, for her classmates and herself. She is excited to see what the future holds and pursue a career in diagnostic medical sonography.
Christine has held several leadership positions in the past. She served as the secretary and then Vice President of the student run dance company at SUNY Oneonta. She also held the position of Clerical Supervisor at her previous job in a surgical office.
