Psychology sophomore Harley Williams was elected Student Government Association president for the 2015-16 school year.
Williams first noticed SGA at a Pizza with the President event and became interested in the association.
“I was a new student, and I had to do a late start, and it was scary and confusing,” Williams said. “I got out of class one day and SGA was having pizza with the college president.”
“I thought it was cool to be able to see who my president was, and it broke the shell for me and I knew SAC was a good place for me.”
Williams became an SGA member and then served as vice president for the 2014-15 school year.
Now as president, Williams oversees officers in student government and delegates responsibilities to each member.
“Student government serves as a student voice since we are elected by the students. We are the voice between administration and students,” Williams said.
SGA meets with all Alamo Colleges, President Robert Vela and the surrounding colleges and universities to discuss issues on campus and then presents the topics at SGA meetings the first three Mondays of each month.
In the Aug. 31 meeting, members and students discussed student resources and communication between students and their professors.
SGA had a closed meeting Sept. 11 to discuss questions and concerns for a Student Dialogue with Chancellor Bruce Leslie Sept. 16 at this college.
The Student Dialogue is an open forum where students can ask questions of the chancellor that will be held 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Oct. 21 in the Heritage Room at St. Philip’s College.
The next SGA meeting will be noon-1 p.m. today in the craft room of Loftin Student Center.
