Logan Ueno is the recipient of Fullerton College’s APIA award for 2020-2021. Logan Ueno was a leader on campus and in his community. In fall of 2020, Logan took the lead to research, script, and produce short, informational videos explaining each of the 12 ballot propositions so voters would be better informed. As the Vice-President of Records of Associated Students, Logan’s duty was to take meeting minutes, oversee attendance, and chair the A.S. Judicial Committee. As an officer of Associated Students, one of his main goals that came to fruition was creating a new Executive Officer position to help A.S. with student outreach and publicity to engage our student body.
In addition to his extensive service at Fullerton College, Logan is also active in the community and works at the Orange County Buddhist Church, serves on the Los Angeles Buddhist Coordinating Council, and the Senior Young Buddhist Association.
Logan’s academic goal is to attend a UC majoring in Political Science with law school in his sights so he can obtain his Juris Doctorate. His career aspirations are to either enter public service by running for office to help the voiceless or working for the state department in global diplomacy.
