SGA Pinning Ceremony

Fifteen members of the Coahoma Community College Student Government Association recently stepped into their new leadership roles at a pinning ceremony.

The SGA serves as an advocating body that exudes the leadership abilities, intelligence and qualities necessary to serve as representatives for students of the College. President Towner recited an oath that pledged the students into the student organization.

In a keynote address, Albert Bush, a 2007 graduate and former SGA president of CCC, advised the students to view their pins as shields that can only protect them under the condition that they possess three qualities: the character of an SGA member, commitment and consistency.

Bush, who is a seventh grade science teacher at Quitman County Middle School, told the inductees, “When I was pinned as the SGA president, I wasn’t afraid. I wasn’t nervous, but I was ready. It gave me that opportunity that I was looking for in high school.”

After noting that attending Coahoma changed his life, he referenced the movie “300” to draw a comparison between the shield that the 300 soldiers uniquely held to guard themselves and the inductees’ SGA pins.

“You must first have the character to have the pin…how you walk, how you talk, how you treat people, how you receive people,” Bush said.

“Even in your time of frustration, you have to have the character to always be mindful of ‘I’m wearing the shield.’”
