Brazosport College’s Student Government Association (SGA) was recently named the best in Texas for 2014 by the Texas Junior College Student Government Association (TJCSGA).
The announcement was made at the TJCSGA’s annual convention earlier this month in Austin.
Brazosport College’s SGA was nominated to represent Region V at the convention because of their diligent efforts to enhance the student experience at Brazosport College and the local community. Brazosport College sent eight students and two advisors to the convention.
“As an advisor to SGA, it has been a privilege to watch this group of students lead an organization that focuses on serving Brazosport College and the greater community,” said SGA advisor Kelli Forde. “It was a huge honor just to be nominated by our region for this award, much less be named chapter of the year. I am extremely proud of their tremendous accomplishments this year.”
The Texas Junior College Student Government Association is the only student-maintained organization in the state that works to promote the cause of community college students at the local, regional, state and national level, and is composed of over 72 member colleges, split into six regions, across the state.
The state convention was an opportunity for SGAs from community colleges across the state of Texas to come together and share ideas, make decisions and network with one another.
