SGA Attends State Leadership Conference
Northwest Florida State College Student Government Association (SGA) officers and senators, along with advisor Aimee Watts, attended the Florida College System Student Government Association (FCSSGA) Leadership Conference Sept. 24-27 in Orlando.
SGA members attending were: Rachel Gilroy (president) of Freeport; Jessica Kim (vice president) of Niceville; Raymond Bolen (president pro-tempore) of DeFuniak Springs; Angela Roy (community service coordinator) of Destin; Sally Yang (sergeant at arms) of Crestview; Alijah Veneszee (senator) of Fort Walton Beach; Drew Hannah (senator) of Navarre; Stefan Makarov, Kirsten Dawson and Zach Zedicher (senators) of Niceville; and Sean Giovanneillo and Eddell Molina (senators) of Crestview.
During the four-day conference, students and advisors from across Florida attended workshops on leadership, communication and legislative issues. NWF State College also participated in a community service project in downtown Orlando at the Salvation Army, helping sort school supplies and cleaning a housing area.
Three NWF State College students were elected to serve on the district level: Rachel Gilroy as secretary, Sean Giovanneillo as jurisprudence, and Sally Yang as service learning chair. In addition, Watts took over as the FCSSGA state advisor.
FCSSGA represents the nearly 1 million students enrolled in the Florida College System's 28 colleges. The organization promotes legislative advocacy and training, leadership development, service learning, promotion of campus activities, and strong citizenship. All of this is done in order to support the main mission and purpose of FCSSGA, which is "to unify the member colleges in order to best attend to the appropriate concerns of the students of the Florida Community College system and serve as a vehicle to communicate these concerns to the Florida Legislative Body."
