Centre friends, I am so excited to be running for SGA President. I have been on SGA for each semester I have been on campus, including spending two years on Executive Council as Communications Chairman and Secretary of Administration. As Communications Chairman, I worked to ensure that students were able to find any information about SGA efficiently. I created a weekly Cowan banner for SGA to best communicate with the students, as well as improved our social media outreach to better communicate with the campus community. As Secretary of Administration, I am currently planning a community-wide 5K at Millennium Park on April 22 to benefit Camp Horsin’ Around, an outstanding camp for disabled children right outside of Danville.
Next year, I have big plans to create a better campus for students.
- I will create a Sustainability Chairman for SGA. Centre SGA already does excellent work promoting a more sustainable campus, but I believe the addition of this position would help us to change our campus sustainability culture and would allow us to take on larger projects as an organization.
- I will create open dialogues between the administration and the student body. I would like to have monthly Q&A sessions between SGA members and the student body with different parts of the administration: the SLO, DPS, the RLO, and so on. Opening up avenues of communication between these groups at Centre can only help us improve our campus community.
- The Centre experience focuses on three pieces: learning, leadership, and service. I will work with service organizations on campus to create more cohesive, substantial service opportunities for students. Centre students are overprogrammed, limiting their ability to participate in service. I will help organizations to collaborate to allow Centre students more opportunity to get involved in campus and community service events. I have already met with Greg Chery, our Director of Community Service, and we are working together to ensure that these plans become a reality over the next year.
Because of my SGA experience, I know I can accomplish these tasks in the upcoming school year. The key to a successful SGA is the collaboration of all members working toward a common goal. As SGA President, I would build a diverse, creative Executive Council that would work to improve the student experience at Centre College. I am qualified, I am committed, and I am ready to help you! If you have any questions or suggestions for me or SGA as a whole, feel free to shoot me an email – firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you!
