I have served on the Village of River Hill Board of Directors for the past year and would like to apply for a second term. I am an active member of the Board, enjoy serving the community and feel that I’ve made valuable contributions during my term.
I also serve on the River Hill Master Plan and Columbia Association Watershed Advisory Committees. These memberships broaden my knowledge base about local affairs and enable me to better serve River Hill. I am also a member of the Pheasant Valley Town Home Association Board. I was born and raised in Columbia and believe that we are all very lucky to be living in the best City in one of the top Counties in the Country. I will do my best to keep it that way.
I, Liyan Zhang, am strongly interested in serving on the Board of River Hill Community Association (RHCA), because me and my family have been River Hill residents since 2001, for over 11 years. Both my son and daughter have attended local schools and grown up here. I have known many River Hill residents, as colleagues, or private friends, or neighbors. I love my community and I have benefited greatly from the excellent service of RHCA, and now it is time for me to give back. Also, as I a senior level professional in network engineering, it is important for me to get involved in all aspect of neighborhood social life. I have been studying and living in English environment for 22 years with fluent English and Chinese, and a deep understanding of US society, plus an international viewpoint, I believe I can be a very valuable board member of RHCA.
