ASPCC stands for Associated Students of Portland Community College. We are students of PCC employed part time by the Student Activity Fee to be the voice for the student community. Being students ourselves, coming from a wide variety of backgrounds and world views, we understand the hardships that students go through while trying to achieve their educational and life goals. We are here to help you during your journey.

ASPCC Sylvania operates on a General Student Council Forum, where student leaders all have a voice to share their diverse ideas and concerns, providing student services and advocacy. Feel free to visit us to take a look at the projects we are working on.


Fatmah Worfeley - Executive Director


Hi everyone, my name is Fatmah and I'm the ASPCC Executive Director or the Student Body President. I've been at PCC for about 2 years now, and this year I'm graduating. I will be majoring in Political Science, Communication and Spanish. I've decided to change my major because of my work with ASPCC. The reason why I joined ASPCC was to learn more about PCC. And now, I know so much, and I want to help make a change at PCC. I look forward to creating relationships with every student on this campus, partnering with the different centers, creating a more unified and inclusive space for students, and most importantly I look forward to seeing the students succeed and thrive at their absolute best.

Bronte Brecht - Events and Programs Director


Hi everyone! My name is Bronte Brecht, and I am ASPCC's Events and Programs Director. I joined ASPCC in order to help give PCC students a voice and a sense of community in a large and sometimes overwhelming school. This year I am looking forward to planning lots of fun events and developing my leadership abilities. My educational goal is to transfer to a four-year college in Fall 2016 and to major in English Literature with a minor in Gender and Sexuality Studies once I do. Eventually I would love to become an English professor, professional editor, or correspondent on an NPR-type radio show like This American Life.
