ASHNU Executive Board


Bryson-Joey Morn
Student Body President

Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Bryson-Joey Morn and I will be serving you as your 2014-2015 ASHNU Student Body President. I am originally from Honolulu, Hawai’i and enjoy soaking up the sun on the beautiful renowned Hawaiian beaches. I also enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking and playing beach volleyball.

I am entering my Senior year here at Holy Names as a Liberal Studies Major and a Music Minor, with plans to achieve not only my Bachelors Degree but also my Masters Degree in Business Management. I am an active student leader on campus and involved in many different clubs and organizations on campus. I am an active member of the Pacific Islander Club; a Student Athlete on the Men’s Volleyball team; and I am also a Student Ambassador/Admissions Intern in the Office of Admissions.

The best thing about HNU is the people you meet here and the friendships and bonds you create. With the radical hospitality rooted in the culture and values here at HNU, making long lasting relationships is not a problem.

Holy Names has provided me with many opportunities to get prepared for the work field and life after college. I am proud to say that I will soon be an alum of this university and apply all the skills HNU has provided me with.


Sydnee Leveston
Vice President

Hi! My name is Sydnee Leveston and I am the ASHNU Student Body Vice-President! I am Senior and am a Multimedia Arts & Communications Major and Music Minor. I hope to one day go into the Music Industry from a Communications standpoint and eventually work my way over to performance. I came to HNU from Southern California and I have to say that one of the best things about this place is the location; we have one of the best views of the Bay Area. Another one of my favorite things is our unique, family-like campus community! 


Cecelia Gonzalez
Communications/Publicity Coordinator

My name is Cecilia Gonzalez and I am your ASHNU Communications/ Publicity Coordinator. I was born and raised in the Bay Area (more precisely, raised in Livermore, CA). I am a senior at HNU majoring in biological sciences. After Holy Names, I plan to further my education and become either a pharmacist or a radiological technician. The best thing about HNU is the friendly atmosphere. All the people you meet at this university, become like your second family. And you can't go wrong with the amazing view either!


Victor Byers
Financial/Budget Coordinator

I was born and raised in Reno, Nevada. I went to Spanish Springs High School. I am majoring in Biology here at Holy Names University and play on the Men's Soccer team. After Holy Names I am going to go to medical school to pursue a career as a surgeon. I am a Junior and I am the ASHNU Budget and Financial Coordinator. One of the things I enjoy most about HNU is the atmosphere, everyone is very friendly and always willing to help each other.


Destany Charles
Student Life/Events Coordinator

My name is  Destany Charles and I am from Los Angeles, CA. I am a senior here at Holy Names and am the 2014- 2015 ASHNU Event Planner. I am majoring in English and Communications and minoring in Sociology. I intend to go into Public Relations and be a novelist. I think the best thing about HNU is the people and the energy that they have, Holy Names is really a community and you can feel that from the moment you drive through the front gates.


Jedidah Hanakahi
Commuter Student Coordinator

Name: Jedidah Hanakahi
Position: Commuter Student Coordinator
Hometown: Waianae, HI
Year: Junior
Major: Business Management
Future Career: In my future I see myself opening my own restaurant and linking up with a non-profit organization to give back while making a living. Though I have plans for my future I will never be tied down to what I have planned. I will explore all my options and possibilities that will confront me in this complex and rapidly changing world.
Best thing about HNU: For me the best thing about HNU is the diversity on campus and the culture each and every individual brings to the school. Coming from the island of O'ahu I thought I would be an outsider, but as there are many outsiders joining in one community it kind of makes us feel like all insiders with really cool names.


Maria Fernanda Cuevas
Campaign and Outreach Coordinator

My name is Mariafernanda, and for the 2014-2015 academic year I will be coordinating the campaign and outreach program. I am from Southern California, the small canyon city of Azusa. I am a senior and will be graduating with religious studies major and philosophy as a related field major. I am also working on bachelors in science of nursing. The best thing about Holy Names University is probably the great charisma the sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary have throughout the campus, that and the core values mainly the social justice and spirituality that is in action here and the community.


Luke Chesworth
Senior Class President

Hi my name is Luke Chesworth. I am from Scottsdale Arizona and I am the senior class president of HNU for the 2014-2015 school year. I play on the men's soccer team and I am a biology major. I hope to become a doctor in the near future. The best thing about HNU is the small community. I personally think its great to know everybody at school and have the opportunity to have a close relationship with the instructors.


Ashley Brice-Digman
Senior Class Vice President

Hi, my name is Ashley Brice-Digman and I am the new Senior Class Vice President. I am from Ewa Beach, Hawaii. This is my fourth year here at Holy Names University and I am in pursuit of my English degree, but I ultimately plan on being a Nutritionist/Dietitian. I also have a minor in Art which is always useful, right? The best thing about HNU, to me, is the people. I mean, the classes and professors are cool too, but I have met some amazing people at this school and I know I will meet even more in the coming year. I want to make everyone happy and give them the best college experience possible. I look forward to making things happen!

The thing I like most about HNU is the small classroom size, it allows the students to get the most out of class time.
