NCTC chosen as student government host school

Elizabeth F. Abu | Apr 19, 2018

Thirteen students from North Central Texas College attended the annual Texas Junior College Student Government Association State (TJCSGA) Convention in Austin, Texas, where NCTC was named the Region II Host School for 2018-2019. 

NCTC Gainesville student Vakayla Wilford represented NCTC at the convention and will serve as the Host School Officer.

As host school, NCTC will welcome community college students from across North Texas for the Student Government Association (SGA) Regional conferences in the fall and spring.

Students attended a variety of workshops on topics ranging from parliamentary procedure to leadership skills. They were able to network with students from across the state and within their region.

NCTC Corinth student Melissa Larin has held the Region II Public Relations Officer position over the past semester.

“My experience as the Public Relations Officer for Region II was unforgettable and enlightening,” said Larin. “I believe that this episode of my life has positively influenced me in a multitude of ways. It started off with the unfamiliarly and the unknown that ultimately resulted in me growing as a person. I would like to thank my e-board for making this journey remarkable and the two advisors, Beth Nikopolous and Kelly Sonnanstine, for pushing my boundaries. Overall, I could not be more grateful for my outstanding team.” 

“Region II has been great so far and I am excited to be a part of this region,” said Wilford, “especially as host school.”  

NCTC SGA President Alyssabeth Lafferty submitted an original song at the state convention and won second place.

"The TJCSGA Convention has been an event the students look forward to attending every year,” said Student Life Specialist and NCTC SGA Advisor Brisa Finegan. “It gives our students an opportunity to engage with other schools and get out of there comfort zone as leaders. It amazes me how much the students grow throughout the year, it is very rewarding.”
