Michelle Clowser, Secretary/Treasurer

I was born and raised a San Lorenzo Villager. I attended Del Rey, David E. Martin and Arroyo H.S. I participated in youth softball, soccer and volunteer work as a child. I was a Blue Bird and a Girl Scout and I traveled in summers with my parents learning about other cultures and scientific and historic items of interest. My mom was a local teacher and my dad was a millwright. I attended community meetings right alongside my parents, and walked strikes with them in front of the District Office when the teachers fought for extra pay and benefits in the 70s. I graduated Cal State Hayward with a B.A. in English and Gonzaga Law School where I obtained a Juris Doctorate (law degree). I have worked as a civil attorney, and also as a teacher in the SLZ School District over the years. I now work in public service for the communities in Alameda County. I spend my free time doing volunteer work for this community. As a child I was encouraged by my parents’ own example to help others: you help kids, you help the less fortunate, you help your neighbor. You step up because not everyone can and sometimes it’s your turn to be the helper. You do what you can with what you have and, as a result, make a good life for not just you, but for those you help. I encourage members of this community to participate, to step up, to help out, in any capacity. Because the “collective impact” of helping each other is far more than we can achieve alone. When we venture outside of our homes, we find this wonderful community. Together, we can help make and sustain a thriving community, even through adversity.


Brandon Lin, Director

A lifelong resident, I was born and raised here, attending Bay School, Washington Manor, and graduating from San Lorenzo High. While my journey included a few years overseas and in San Francisco, San Lorenzo has always called me back – I happily returned in 2023 . My passion for giving back started early. In high school, I not only participated in Key Club, DECA, but also founded a microloans organization in Myanmar which all interacted and assisted with the community. These experiences instilled in me the importance of volunteering and supporting the place we call home. I’m thrilled to join the board and collaborate with my fellow members. Together, we can ensure San Lorenzo remains a vibrant and thriving community.
