Student Leadership

Learning happens outside of the classroom too! We provide many opportunities for students to develop valuable leadership skills. Participation in clubs and organizations, or involvement in any of the following leadership programs, will help make you a well-rounded, marketable student.

Student Government Association

The AWC Student Government Association (SGA) is an organized body of students that represents AWC students by advocating student concerns, promoting a community atmosphere, and improving student life by providing a variety of activities. SGA serves as the voice of the student body and helps make decisions for the benefit of the current and future students of AWC. We invite all students to participate in SGA and help make a difference on your campus!

2019-2020 AWC Student Government

To find out more information or to contact any of the members please email us at Student.Government@azwestern.edu.

President

Fatima Covarrbias 
What I love the most about being a leader is to empower others and to bring people together. Therefore, if you vote for me as your Student Government Association President, I will make my biggest effort to ensure your voice gets heard and make sure that we are collecting your ideas to provide you with enough events and activities to make your time at AWC fun and engaging.

VP of Records

Margoth Soto-Chavira
I want to be involved in the community, and I think that Student Government is the best option to do it.  I have skills and abilities that would be helpful and relate to SGA.  I can work in a team and alone when necessary.  I am patient, respectful and open to other people’s opinions. 

V.P of Development

Olivia Garcia
I have extensive experience in leadership roles and my determination for the position I am applying. People should vote for me because I will perform my responsibilities and requirements to the best of my abilities. Participating in this will be a thrilling experience and allow me to make my college career memorable and fun while establishing new and lifelong connections. Thank you for your time and consideration in the position of Vice President of Development. 

V.P. of Programming

Melissa Navarette
Being a part of the Student Government Association would be a great opportunity for me to meet new people and become more aware of what goes on in our college.   Also, I enjoy helping others when they are in need. 

V.P. of Public Relations

Wasi Musonde Asombang-Price
In my senior year of high school, I obtained the position of being a deputy head-boy.  This position enabled me to achieve the opportunity of monitoring a high school dormitory.  I was in charge of 50 students for the whole year and during that time I received the reward of most hard working student of the year.  I am strong enough to take on this position and I feel it fits me.  

V.P. of Finance

Jennifer Rivera
To start, I would like to hold the position of V.P. of Finance to keep up financially and organize fundraisers so that SGA can have a good amount of money to achieve some goals that the program has in mind. During Spring semester 2019, I became V.P. of Finance from March and already have experience in this position. I believe I am a good candidate for this position since I consider myself very organized and like to be involved in fundraisers, so it would be a good opportunity for me to organize them.

V.P. of Student Health and Safety

Juan Alcocar
The skills and abilities I have that relate with the student government would be that I am a good listener and I have patience, I am respectful and responsible.  I can interact easily with people so if anyone has a problem it can be easier to talk to a peer than a teacher.  I believe that I can grow and learn new skills with SGA which will help me in the future. 

Meetings are held every Monday at 3:30-4:30pm in the Frances Morris Board Room. We invite you to get involved in creating events and helping to improve quality of life at AWC. If you have a topic you would like to discuss at a meeting, contact Shara Skinner to request to be placed on the agenda.
