Student Success Profile: Rayshon Mack
I'm Working to Heal My City
Rayshon Mack (Nursing, '16) has a healing heart. For 16 years, he's worked for Good Samaritan Hospital as a Patient Care Assistant, and he looks forward to completing his Nursing degree to advance his career and to better help his ailing patients.
But his healing ambitions go far beyond the medical landscape; he's working to improve the health of his city.
Rayshon is a proud member of the Mayor's Young Professionals Kitchen Cabinet, a group of 75 young professionals invited to serve as advisors to the mayor, providing innovative ideas and helping to create new initiatives for the city.
He’s a huge supporter of Mayor Cranley, and wanted to be a part of his vision for Cincinnati.
“I became intrigued with politics about five years ago when I learned about all the behind the scenes work that happens at City Hall.”
“Through the Young Professional’s Kitchen Cabinet, I’m able to help make a real difference with neighborhood safety, fiscal issues, community arts initiatives, and more!”
As he completes his education, Rayshon plans to transition to UC’s Clifton campus to pursue his BSN degree with a minor in political science. From there, he’s only looking forward.
“I’d like to run for Cincinnati City Council – and continue to help the city I love.“
