Students interested in becoming an officer for this college’s Student Government Association can apply through 10 a.m. April 24.
Positions include president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, historian parliamentarian, commissioner of student success, commissioner of service, commissioner of strategic planning, commissioner of public relations and commissioner of veteran affairs.
All students have to do is complete and turn in a candidate packet, which are available at the office of student life in Loftin Student Center Room 256 and with Nicole France, SGA adviser and senior coordinator of outreach and recruitment, in Room 230 of Fletcher Administration Center.
The candidate packet explains duties and expectations of the applicant, eligibility, campaign plans, election posting and campaign rules, violations and grievances, procedures and a personal statement questionnaire.
To hold office, students must have a 2.7 GPA.
The deadline for applications changed from April 18 to April 24 because not enough applications were turned in, France said.
Officers are awarded stipends for the semester.
The president position is awarded $400, executive officers are awarded $300 and commissioners are awarded $250.
“Not only does this give students an opportunity to take up leadership, it also gives students the chance to be the voice of change that they want to see happen,” France said in an interview April 15.
