Get involved: Student government looking for new leaders

For the second straight year, HonCC has started   off without a working elected student government.  It has been more than two semesters since there has been an active SG, but the good news is there is plenty of opportunity for those who want to get involved.
HonCC currently has all student government positions available for the upcoming school year, and the next group of leaders has a unique opportunity to re-imagine what the future of the school’s student government will look like.
Think about what you see or don’t see on our campus.  Do you have fresh ideas about changes that need to be made?  Do you discuss campus issues and inadequacies with your friends?  Do you want to be a major voice and decision maker about these campus issues?
If you answered yes to any or all of the above questions, a position in student government may be just what you are looking for.
In addition to making changes at the school, other benefits of joining and being an active member of student government include meeting new friends and like minded-students, adding leadership skills to your resume and college transfer applications, experience with the varied aspects of government, and a sense of accomplishment for all your hard work.
For more information about joining student government at HonCC, contact Student Life and Development in Building 2 (the same place you get your student I.D. card) or email them at hccsld@hawaii.edu.
