Meet Priya Lakireddy: Incoming staff advisor to the Regents
Priya Lakireddy moved to Merced with her family in 2009, the same year First Lady Michelle Obama congratulated UC Merced’s historic first graduating class. She wasn’t sure what her next step would be, but she was drawn to UC Merced’s promise and opportunity.
A contract administrator in Procurement Services, Priya has found her career path at UC Merced and her community in the staff assembly.
“The people I met in staff assembly in 2014 are now among my best friends. I started as co-chair for events and worked my way up to president and senior CUCSA delegate,” Priya says.
Now, she is joining current Staff Advisor Lucy Tseng in bringing the voice and perspective of staff to Board of Regents discussions as incoming staff advisor to the UC Regents.
