Miami Dade College students elected new Student Government Association officers at all eight campuses on April 14.
Voting took place from April 11to 13; elected officers will be sworn in on May 1. They will serve during the 2011-2012 academic year.
Positions such as president, vice president, secretary, treasurer and public relations director vary by campus.
“At first I was stunned,”said Jessica Alpizar, who was elected vice president at Kendall Campus. “It’s hard to take it all in.”
The newly appointed officers have had experience working alongside current SGA presidents and advisers to prepare themselves for their new positions.
“We start planning during the summer with our team and adviser to find out a theme for the school year and put together ideas,” said Edwin Ramos, who was elected treasurer at InterAmerican Campus.
Ruben Gomez, who was elected president at Kendall Campus, said he looks forward to the challenge.
“I need to be the voice of the students,” Gomez said. “I would love to not just unify Kendall Campus but MDC as a whole.”
