St. Clair County Community College Student Government Vice-President Jonathan Brewer resigned his position at the end of the fall 2011 semester. According to Brewer, he stepped down to transfer to Michigan State University.
According to Student Government President, Doug Johnson, three student candidates interviewed for the open position.
That process was followed by a discussion between members of the Student Government Executive Board. Present was Alysia Burge, Johnson, SC4 Student Activities, Orientation and International Programs Coordinator Angel Niederkohr.
According to Johnson, it was decided that Chelsea Borkovich was felt to be the best possible candidate to fill vacant position.
Borkovich was presented to the clubs assembled at the All Club meeting on Jan. 18, where she was voted in as the new vice president by a margin of 11 in favor and only one club voting against.
Borkovch is an Elementary Education major and the founder of the SC4 Soccer Club. She explained she felt her experience from involvement in multiple clubs would benefit her as a leader.
“I want to listen to what students have to say,” said Borkovich. She went on to say she would strive to do her best to accommodate reasonable requests.
“I want people to really know I care and I do listen,” replied Borkovich.
Borkovich, and any member of the student government, can be reached at their office at: (810) 989-5737.78
