Quinsigamond Community College had a changing of the guard with the election of Mustafa Boweden as Student Trustee and Jorgo Gushi as the Student Government Association (SGA) President for 2019-2020.

Mr. Boweden will serve as the student trustee on QCC’s 11-member Board of Trustees. Members of the Board are all appointed to a five-year term, with the exception of the student trustee who is elected to a one-year term. In the role of student trustee, Mr Boweden will represent all students of the college. Student trustees are also assigned to serve on the Strategic Planning Committee and are expected to attend, all committee and regular meetings as well as the annual trustee retreat.

“One of my goals as trustee is to have students become involved in something other than just school work,” Mr. Boweden said. “I’d like to help move the school forward to a more socialized community.”

As the new SGA President, Mr. Gushi will represent and preside over the SGA both on and off campus, coordinate all SGA activities, serve on campus as a representative on the Activities Programming Committee, Student Services Council, and Governance Steering Council, in addition to serving off campus on the Student Advisory Council to the Board of Higher Education. Mr. Gushi was also recently elected as Interim Chair of the Student Advisory Council to the Board of Higher Education.

“I pledge, along with the whole SGA group, to work to improve student experience through advocacy and collaboration with other campus offices and organizations,” Mr. Gushi said. “Our intention is to faithfully and actively represent the engaged student body by providing transparency, fostering inclusivity, setting endurance, and promoting diversity through visible outreach, creative initiatives, and dedicated teamwork among all members of SGA.”
