By Jonathan Muñoz

Miami Dade College students elected new Student Government Association officers at all eight campuses during the week of April 9.

Elections took place  from April 9 to April 11; elected officers will take office during the summer term and will serve during the 2012-2013 academic year.

Elected positions varied at each campus. Open positions included: president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, public relations director and government relations director.

Rolanda Schand will serve as Homestead’s SGA President for the second year.

“My theme for this year is ‘It's time to get urgent.’,” she said.  “Count on me to make your voice is heard.”

Bianca Gomez, Wolfson Campus SGA president who served the 2011-2012 term, said she is confident in the newly elected officers.

“I have been working closely all year with this new board,” Gomez said. “They have the SGA spirit in them and they are very dedicated.”

Anthony Correa, North Campus president elect hopes to bring an “atmosphere of unification on all campuses and encourage inter-campus bonds.”

“I want to develop an atmosphere that encourages organization and community involvement throughout the student body,” Correa said. “I would also like to strengthen inter-campus and intra-campus cooperation in the hope of creating an even more proud and unified MDC.”
