DSCC Student Government Association President Deandre Scott of Tigrett and Vice President Gabrielle Spivey of Dyersburg greeted students attending the Back to School Bash held on the Dyersburg campus on Wednesday, September 12. Students, faculty and staff members were served hot dogs right off the grill at the picnic held on the lawn outside the Glover Education building. The SGA hosted similar events at the DSCC Jimmy Naifeh Center at Tipton County and at the DSCC Gibson County during the week.
The Student Government Association is the official voice of the student body at DSCC. As such, it represents the feelings, values, and desires of the student body to the College administration. Members of the SGA serve on every major College committee except the Faculty Assembly. As such, members of this body are influential in every decision that is made which concerns this College and its students.
The SGA is the single most powerful student organization on the DSCC campus and membership in this body is one of responsibility and prestige. SGA officers are elected by the student body. In addition, members attend annual conferences of the Tennessee Intercollegiate Legislature and other state student government activities.
The SGA sponsors major social activities each year and advises the Student Affairs Committee concerning the initiation of additional student social activities. Students are strongly encouraged to participate in the activities of the SGA.
