The SGA Executive Board leads the organization and serves as a voice for students on campus. We invite you to get to know the current members of the board.

President

Charles Bailey
Business Information Systems

I am currently studying Business Information Systems as a Computer Support Specialist. The reasons I chose GPTC is simply the location along with the many avenues I can travel within my field of study.  As SGA President, providing a safe, confidential and easily accessible, but fun environment for the student body is my number one priority.  I am a true gadget and tech head.

Vice-President

Mignon Bowen
Business Administration

My program of study is Business Administration and my graduation date is set for fall 2021. The reason I chose GPTC was due to the location and having family with whom are alumni. I am hoping to learn the skills to become an effective leader in SGA. I enjoy having fun and bring joy to those whom I meet. I am an avid ice skater.

Secretary

Michelle Tiller
Business Management

My program of study is Business Management graduating in 2020.  I enrolled in GPTC because my husband attended here when it was DeKalb Tech. In my position as Secretary, I am strengthening my skills as a follower. Every good leader is also a good follower. I am an aspiring comedienne and Kansas City Chiefs fan.

Treasurer

Ruth Michael
Business Technology

My program of study is Business Technology. My expected graduation day is May 2020. I wanted to attend Georgia Piedmont Technical College because it is a diverse school and all the staff members are excellent and helpful. I am glad I joined this amazing organization as well. I learned a lot of skills and knowledge since I joined SGA. I love the social life. I am the mother of three beautiful children and love to be around people.

 


Elections

Running for a position in the Student Government Association is a great way to develop your leadership skills, influence campus decisions, and get involved in your campus community. Elections are held in the spring for the following positions:

  • President
  • Vice-President
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer

S.A.V.E. and Emerging Leaders

If you are not quite ready to run for a position, but want to be involved in SGA, join the Student Activities Volunteer Extraordinaire (S.A.V.E.) program or Emerging Leaders program. S.A.V.E. allows students to participate and volunteer in activities and events sponsored by SGA and the Office of Student Activities. There is no major commitment. Students are interviewed and then contacted to assist with upcoming events. The Emerging Leaders program is designed to groom individuals that are interested in Student Leader positions. Those students will assist with events as well, but will also be offered leadership training and other responsibilities preparing them for leadership roles.
