2015-16 SGA Elections: Derrick Walker, Candidate for Vice President
Hello, I am Derrick Walker and I am running for Student Government Vice President. The reason I am running is to ensure that Wright has a stronger, more in touch, and active student government. I’ll ensure that the student government will serve the student body by representing every single student that wants to have a voice at Wilbur Wright College.
During the past month here I feel like I have met and connected with so many great students through my classes and extracurricular activities. As a Student Government Representative, earning the students’ respect and listening to students is important to me. I want to find and meet even more students to create stronger connections between the outstanding student body and the student government. There is no better way to represent the students of the school than to have a great connection with the average student and the overall student body.
I believe the Student Government Representative we had in the past did not connect with the student body as much as they were expected to. By continuing a healthy relationship with the student body, the student government will succeed at representing the student body. I want to be part of a student government that represents the entire school.
I want very much to publish or announce some kind of weekly notice to update the entire school on what we are thinking or doing to keep not just us as S.G.A. informed, but the whole school informed. By keeping the students linked to the student government, the student government can maintain a more usual and accurate pulse of the school and know what decisions to make based on what the students believe.
The majority of the student body enjoyed the events that were created by this year’s student government and as a member I will continue to improve and recreate these events. As a member of student government I would like to introduce more opportunities to the students at Wilbur Wright College. Also, some new activities can be created to make next year here even more enjoyable.
As vice president, I will work with the members of student government and with the entire student body to guarantee that everyone’s upcoming experiences at Wilbur Wright College are positive ones. All in all, I believe I can continue the positive aspects of this year’s student government and fix any minor problems that might arise. Everything that you loved about your time here at the college will continue. The title of Student Government Vice President is deserved by someone who is a great leader who can make important, independent decisions with the students in mind. I will work hard to be that leader and make those decisions.
