Newly elected officers gearing up for new year

By Monique Madan

Miami Dade College North Campus students have spoken, selecting new Student Government Association officers this past April.

An official induction ceremony will be held for the executive board on Friday, June 25 at noon at the Science Complex lecture hall. They will be sworn in by the Honorable Darrin P. Gayles, County Court Judge of the eleventh judicial circuit.

“As your elected representatives, we vow to work determinedly to serve you, the students of Miami Dade College, North Campus,” said Hafeeza Rahman, who was selected the 2010-11 North Campus SGA president. “We are here to voice your concerns, stand for your interests and tend to your needs.”

The other elected officers are: Angela Macia (vice president), Jude Pierre (treasurer), JaRod Anderson (governmental relations director) and Danyelle Carter (public relations director).

“We intend to put our best effort forth by surveying students, analyzing current issues and eventually making a difference, " said Carter, who served as North Campus SGA vice president during the 2009-10 school year.

Working closely with the North Campus SGA will be Mariajose Ortega, last year’s governmental relations director, and this year’s Florida Junior Community College Student Government Association president. FJCCSGA represents 28 colleges, and 1.3 million students in the state of Florida.

“I intend to focus on developing leadership skills state-wide and the importance that one's presentation has in succeeding in life,” Ortega said. “This year, Miami Dade College will step up and represent its students beyond its ability."

Although SGA’s definite plans will not be finalized until the fall, they are hoping to conduct numerous communal activities and services, advocating for issues that affect students such as Bright Futures, residency for in-state tuition and textbook affordability.
