Our Crew Leaders!
Every spring, PCSC holds elections at the crew retreat. These elections decide the team of youth members that will lead PCSC through the crew year. See below to find out who is dedicating their time to a PCSC leadership position this year! Feel free to contact one or more of the leaders if you have any questions about PCSC.
Crew Advisor: Ken Li
Ken is the founder of PCSC and has been mentoring Piedmont teens since 2003. He was inspired to meld the success of Piedmont BSA Council’s 100+ year legacy of Boy Scouting with the chance to include girls via the coed Venturing Program. He tries to meet and get to know every crew member, and for teens that contribute to the success of the crew, he promises to be a long-term champion for their own future success.
Tali Cooper and Kaelin Campbell
My name is Tali Cooper and I am so excited to be PCSC Co-presidents with Kaelin Campbell. This is my fourth year in the crew, and each year I grow to love it more and more. When I'm not helping the crew make and complete SMART goals, I am playing water polo, teaching swim lessons, or getting a burrito from the Montclair Taqueria. I love attending PCSC events, and meeting new people, so if you see me in the halls or around town don't be afraid to say hello!
I am a senior at Piedmont High School and am so excited to be a co-president of PCSC with my best friend, Tali! I have been in PCSC since freshman year, and was the VP of Program last year. Through these experiences I have learned countless leadership skills and so much about myself. Outside of PCSC, I play water polo, lifeguard, and am the treasurer for High Adventure Crew.
Vice President of Administration:
I am a junior at Piedmont High School and am so excited to be this year’s VP Admin! I joined PCSC the beginning of my freshman year and have been involved ever since. This past year I was Co-VP Fundraising and learned so much about leadership. What I’m most looking forward to this year is getting to do more outreach to members and new recruits! When I’m not doing PCSC I’m usually either playing volleyball, working at Schoolmates, or doing High Adventure Crew as VP Admin!:)
Vice President of Communications:
I am the Vice President of Communications for PCSC this 2019/2020 year. I started leading and going to PCSC events in the fall of Freshman year, and I instantly loved the work and atmosphere of the different volunteer opportunities. I am so excited to continue being a part of this crew. Last year, I worked as the VP Accounting, and I am so excited to spend my junior year working hard at the role of VP Communications!
Co-Vice Presidents of Program:
Sofia Stahl and Jaden Ferraro
I’m a senior at PHS and am super excited to share the role of VP Program with Sofia Stahl. Within PCSC, my favorite things have been planning RTO, cleaning up Lake Merritt, and working at the pancake breakfast. Outside of PCSC, I am on Piedmont’s mock trial and tennis teams and play the piano.
I’m a junior at Piedmont High School and I’ve been involved in the crew since mid-freshman year! Ever since, I’ve been in love with the crew and our events and have collected over 200 total hours. When I’m not planning activities with PCSC, I’m probably helping the Piedmont Service Squad, the Piedmont Venturing Officers Association, or other related Venturing Crews. I’m also a cheerleader!
Vice President of Accounting:
Vice President of Parent Engagement:
My name is Emma Broening and I am a junior at PHS. I am thrilled to take on my first officer position as VP Accounting. I love PCSC because not only does it create an environment for teamwork and collaboration, but also we are bettering people's lives in everything we do. Outside of PCSC, I like to hang out with friends, spend time outdoors, and read.
I am a junior and the first VP of Parent Engagement for PCSC! PCSC has been a major part of my life ever since I joined my freshman year, especially as VP of Fundraising during my sophomore year. In my free time I play tennis, read, and hang out with friends. I am really excited to be the VP of Parent Engagement, and I really want to cultivate a role that will impact PCSC!
