Piedmont Community College’s (PCC) Student Government Association (SGA) and SGA advisor received awards at the North Carolina Comprehensive Community College Student Government Association (N4CSGA) spring conference held on April 6.

PCC’s SGA was awarded the Top “C” Award, also known as the college of the year award, for their involvement and interaction on campus as well as in the community. The SGA has shown their dedication to community engagement by recently partnering with the Person County Recreation, Arts and Parks Department to offer intramural sports for PCC students, employees and alumni. The SGA also regularly hosts various events on campus such as “Black Joy” for Black History Month and “Galentines” for Women’s History Month where they invited women community leaders and business owners to attend.

Community college SGAs had to submit flyers from their events, evidence of how they have worked with the community, evidence of marketing efforts and participate in interviews where they were asked various questions related to their submissions to be eligible for the award. PCC’s SGA competed against larger community colleges for the award such as Rowan-Cabarrus, Surry, Forsyth Tech, Randolph and Cleveland.

Tiffany Skouby, PCC Director of Student Engagement/SGA Advisor, was awarded the Central Division Advisor of the Year award for her leadership dedication to PCC’s SGA and the N4CSGA. Skouby has encouraged the SGA’s involvement in not only campus and community events, but also on the state level by participating in the N4CSGA, mock legislative sessions and advocating for community colleges on the state level.

Tommy Williams, PCC’s SGA president, expressed that “community is part of the college; it’s written in our name.”

Jahlia Winstead, PCC’s SGA secretary, explained that the goal with SGA events is to always have community involvement. Winstead and Hayley Ale, PCC’s SGA Publicity Officer, are part of the planning committee for SGA events.

“It’s been important to us this year to connect our community with our college,” Winstead said.

“It all goes back to community,” Skouby said. “We get to talk to different people; we get to learn from each other, and it makes us better and the campus community better.”

Skouby expressed that she and the SGA were both shocked and thrilled to receive the Top “C” Award.

“One of the things that I really love about our SGA is the fact that we’re built from different backgrounds, we’re different ages, but we’re all learning from each other and growing from each other,” Skouby said. “It has really helped us cater to the diverse community that is Person County and Caswell County.”

PCC’s SGA is a student representative body that promotes student advocacy, voting initiatives, budget recommendation, student events, support of student organizations and community service. For more information about SGA, contact Tiffany Skouby at tiffany.skouby@piedmontcc.edu.
