message from osceola sga president, franklin velez

As a veteran of the United States Marines, I did not know much about issues that students have throughout their time in college. Valencia Community College Osceola Campus was the first college where I was a full-time student and was allowed  the college environment. My experiences while at Valencia were very eye opening.

As the President of the Student Government Association (SGA), I have had to tackle many issues to include helping students find the resources to assist them in paying for tuition and much more. Due to the current economic status, many students said finances were amongst their highest concern. Knowing this, the Osceola Campus SGA had put together two job fairs for the students. Due to the hard work and dedication of the SGA, we were able to attain 20 vendors, who hired over 150 students.

These Osceola Campus job fairs have received much recognition including 1st place for Exemplary Practice in our Florida Junior Community College Student Government Association (FJCCSGA). We have had many other events throughout the 2009-2010 school year which have educationally enlightened students, alleviated stress for many of our students, and have personally assisted our students in their day to day living. Events that we have had on our campus include the Holiday Festivities Bash, job fairs, Cram Jam, Hob Knob, and much more. I believe that we have succeeded in our attempt to be representatives for the students, advocate for the students, and have many services for the students.

I am very proud to say that I have humbly served our students as the Valencia Community College Osceola Campus SGA president. I hope that we have been able to reach out to many of you and make a difference in your lives, as you all have made a difference in ours. I wish you all the best in your future endeavors!
