Associated Student Government
Student Body President
I am honored to have the opportunity to serve as your Student Body President! I am excited for the future of our school, and I am even more excited to be a part of the growth that takes place here. When I first became a Student at RCC in the summer of 2021, I was able to witness the struggles of post pandemic education firsthand. After having attended this college for 8 consecutive terms, I know what it means to be a student here. During my brief time as President, I will be heavily focused on increasing and stabilizing the quality of service that we provide to you. These last few years have been so difficult for so many of us, it may seem unusual to expect more from those around us, but I am asking you to expect more from your education… It is my opinion that when you expect more, you often get more.
As your Senator, I was able to spend an entire academic year gaining skills and developing new abilities while learning about our school, its current state, its history, and its ambitions. During this time, I have grown in almost every way. My philosophy regarding the importance of Student Government has grown and evolved due to the knowledge I have gained as a Senator and as a Clerical Assistant to the Faculty Advisor for ASG. The role of Student Government encompasses a variety of aspects within the establishment, and we also have the ability to influence the student experience, not just for the individual, but for the student body at large.
Data has shown that students who experience higher levels of engagement at their school have a higher retention rate and develop more resilience, contributing to an overall increase in student success. Since student engagement is half of what we do, I would venture to say that Student Government can be directly connected to how well our students succeed. We also influence the future of the College by bringing the student voice forward. This enables our College to make more informed decisions as they make plans for future development. This knowledge has led me to believe that Student Government is simply invaluable. I will treasure the time that I have here, and I will be sure to make the most of the opportunity that I have been given!!
