Del Tech announces new student leaders The officers of the Student Gov- ernment Association (SGA) of Delaware Technical and Commu- nity College, Owens Campus, are ready for the new challenges and responsibilities of the '96-97 school year. At the SGA's first meeting on Sept. 3, the new officers were in- troduced. They stated their mis- sion and what they are striving to accomplish in the upcoming school year. President Michelle "Shelly" O'Connell, a Human Services Technology student from George- town, is seeking increased student participation this year. She urged students to become more actively involved in the SGA and to attend the open meetings scheduled the first and third Tuesday of each month. "The SGA acts as a liaison for students," O'Connell said. "We can communicate the student's wishes or concerns to faculty." She said the philosophy of the new officers is "Team work - no hierarchy." The other members of the SGA team are Vice-President Artish Fountain, of Seaford, a Criminal Justice student; Attorney General Michelle Hudson of Millsboro, a student in the Early Childhood Education program; Treasurer Holly Moore from Georgetown, a Computer Information Services Technology student; and Secre- tary Kristine Conners of Lewes, a Human Services student. The SGA advisor is Brian Belcher, an academic counselor at Delaware Tech. Through the years the SGA has planned activities and events for the student body. It sponsors sev- eral educational and awareness programs, i.e., the multi-cultural week scheduled in February to co- incide with Black History Month and the Disability Awareness Week in October. However, the SGA knows that to make the learning process a lit- tle less stressful, you need to have some fun. The Halloween Cos- tume Dance, Christmas Dinner Dance, Virtual Reality, Laugh You Lose and Spirit Week are all intended to do just that. The SGA is also concerned with the surrounding community. This year the SGA will kick off its Toys for Tots/Toys for Teens campaign in October. Other com- munity events planned include an Easter Egg Hunt and Women's History Week.
