SGA President

Gabriela Garcia

Hi, My name is Gabriela (Gaby) Garcia, and I'm in my third semester at NSCC studying. I am currently studying History. In the future, I plan to specialize in European History. While studying at NSCC, I have been a part of MASSPIRG, Environmental Club and STEM Club. At NSCC I have felt welcomed and have enjoyed my student experience. 

As president, I strongly believe that every student is important to the NSCC community. I am committed to being a positive leader for you, a leader in which everyone is reflected. True democracy is possible when everyones voice is heard and taken into account. Your opinion and ideas count no matter how big or small you think they are. I want all of you to see me as someone you can trust and talk to about your concerns. The times we are living in are times of uncertainty. However, that should only give us more reasons to raise our voices and unite despite the distance that separates us.

Hey Everyone! I just want to have complete transparency on the issues that I find most pressing that I will be bringing to the board. I welcome to hear additional concerns from the student body.

I believe I have the ability to listen,understand and articulate the issues that are relevant for NSCC students including but not limited to:  

  • Accessibility, affordability and understanding of new technology to be fully operational for an online learning environment

  • Appreciation of racial,cultural,gender, socioeconomic and age diversity and how it impacts a learning environment

  • Coping with unique challenges of pandemic an increased need for additional counseling and dealing with isolation and potential physical illness

  • Increasing communication between SGA and total student body to improve connection and student involvement

  • Helping the homeless and hungry students get housing and food with NSCC funds or grants

  • and allowing students in the Human Services programs to participate in initiatives.  

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to represent you in the 2020-2021 academic year.

Vice President of Academics

Olalekan Adeyeri

My name is Olalekan Adeyeri, as V.P. Of Academics, I hope to utilize my personal experience along with input from you, the student body, to find and implement completely new approaches that the V.P. Academics can aid in increasing student success. I hope to do this through a myriad of approaches. First, by working with our school’s academic success counselors and encouraging increased access to academic success strategies that students may not be aware of. Secondly, promoting real-life learning opportunities that create a passion for learning, through practical applications of the same concepts we’re taught in classes. Finally, and most importantly, given these rapidly changing times, I hope to increase the connection between the student body and North Shore Community College’s academic leadership, through my experience in user research, to develop a way of more rapidly getting student feedback, which would allow for policies that really help students. 

Ultimately, my hope as V.P. Of Academics is to empower and guide students towards better outcomes. Thank you!
