Staff Spotlight:
J.R. Mercado
J.R. is our 4th-year  PMC Project Manager who majors in Social Welfare and Legal Studies. He is the oldest of four, and the first member of his family to attend college. He is also proud to say that he was born and raised in Sacramento, CA, which largely contributed to his devout loyalty to the Sacramento Kings basketball organization. If he is not watching sports (i.e., basketball, football, baseball, or soccer), he's probably working at any one of the three Contra Costa courthouses, collaborating with Bay-Legal attorneys to provide clinic participants access to quality bilingual legal aid. J.R. is a huge concert head and is proud to say he has witnessed J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd, 50 Cent, & NAS perform live. His recommended student publications organization is UC Berkeley's The B-Side. He first had the pleasure of meeting and greeting several of the editors during the Publications & Media Center's STUDENT MEDIA LIVE event last semester. They showed him their awesome and impeccable website that features blogs, and reviews of new albums, in addition to dope music playlists, and news about recent concerts that took place in the Bay Area. Keep up the good work B-Side, and all hail KING KENDRICK LAMAR!
