Student Spotlight: SGA president and vice president
Andrew Hubbard and Aaron Gonzalez ran for offices for the
Student Government Association as “The A Team,” but they weren’t really running
mates – the SGA doesn’t work that way. Today
they are working together as president and vice president respectively and
appear very confident that they can make a difference at San Antonio College.
Hubbard, 19, is a freshman business administration
major. Gonzalez, 21, is criminal justice
major and is also attending St. Mary’s University. He plans to attend law
school – the next step to a career in politics.
Hubbard’s hobby is music, he sings and plays the piano.
Gonzalez is into weightlifting, fitness and watching sports.
Both students got
involved in SGA before deciding to run for office this year.
“I had a class with Jacob Wong (last year’s SGA president).
He invited me to regular SGA meetings,” Hubbard said.
Gonzalez was involved in the Criminal Justice Student
Association – which he says led to his interest in SGA. A 2010 graduate of
Marshall High School, Gonzalez said he wasactive in student government there.
Hubbard was home-schooled since kindergarten. “When I started closing off high school year
I was aware that SAC was the best for me,” Hubbard said.
About 500 – out of
25,000 students – voted in the SGA elections. Both officers want to improve the number of
students who are active in Student Government.
Hubbard outlines his three goals this way:
1. Accurately represent students;
2. Help students the best possible
way we can;
3. Increase the presence of SGA on
Gonzalez said he likes working with people who are willing
“What sets this campus apart is diversity,” Hubbard agrees.
“Our job is to enhance the college experience for students,”
Gonzalez said. “They elected us to serve
The SGA president and vice president are also working to
establish a Student Senate. This would be made up of students from each program
or organization on campus and the goal would be to address problems and
concerns of students. The Student Senate meets Mondays at 2 p.m. in the Loftin
Student Center (LSC).
SGA meetings are held the first and third Monday of the
month from noon to 1 p.m. in the LSC, Craft Room (2nd floor). For more information, call 210-486-0133.
