The Student Government Association is under new management. As confirmed by votes of the student body, five students have entered new leadership roles.

Demetric Strong, a rising sophomore from Clarksdale, Mississippi, is the 2020-21 SGA president; Khalela Dennis, a radio, television and film major from Memphis, Tennessee, will assist as the vice president. Pre-nursing major Tyler Williams, of Lyon, Mississippi, has been voted the secretary, and political science major Justin Williams, the treasurer. Sophomore Alexia Phillips, a Jonestown, Mississippi, native also majoring in political science, will serve as the student activities chairperson.

The Student Government Association serves as a liaison between the student body and administration, which includes the Board of Trustees. The students show forth a commitment to leadership. It is their duty to ensure institutional policy is recognized. SGA leaders aim to enhance the college experience for students of Coahoma Community College.

The newly elected SGA president Demetric Strong aims to prioritize student feedback and maintain a spirit of unity within the SGA cohort. His idea of leading his team in improving student life involves bringing to the forefront the students’ input.

“The more engaged the students are, the more they’ll feel comfortable reaching their highest level of success,” said Strong.

Vice president Khalela Dennis also plans to consider the opinions of students. She hopes incoming students will view the campus as a welcoming environment.

“I look forward to allowing the students to be comfortable enough to vocalize their concerns about the changes they hope to see,” said Dennis.
