SGA appointed an English major to a hiring committee, discussed the continued development of the ethnic studies department, and allotted $7500 to send JC SGA representatives to a state student government conference.

Santa Rosa Junior College’s Student Government Assembly members approved funding for the “Partner With Us” campaign to help strengthen CubCard Premium and reminded us of the deadline for student government, along with discussing important upcoming dates at their March 11 meeting. 

Fund approval for “Partner with us” campaign

Michelle Diaz, vice president of marketing at the Santa Rosa campus, announced she is working on targeting businesses and advertising a partnership proposal to businesses that surround campuses for the “Partner With Us” campaign.

“I would encourage everyone not to hesitate when it comes to using our funds towards marketing, because it can solve a lot of our problems in a way,” said Ruben Garcia, vice president of Student Life in Santa Rosa. 

Reach out to Student Health Services for Narcan

A member of the Students for Recovery club, Dan Lionett, attended the meeting and brought awareness to how important it is to have access to Narcan. Student Health Services can provide students with a box of two Narcan nasal sprays that last 20-90 minutes each.

“Sixty percent of drugs taken off the street contain fentanyl, and you can unknowingly ingest fentanyl,” Lionett said.

Lionett shared a story of a member of Students for Recovery who went to a party on New Year’s Eve, where someone screamed for Narcan. Because this student had access to Narcan, they were able to help this person breathe again.

Student Health Vice President Mark Shen followed with, “The whole point of EMS is they’re there to help, same with district police. So ask for help when you need it, and don’t be worried about talking to the medic and being honest. They are there to help care for you.”

Important information and dates

The deadline to sign up for student government elections for next Fall is March 29.

Melissa Cowan, an SGA advisor, wants to remind students that the Finance Benefits Committee meets Wednesdays from 3:15 to 4 p.m. to review budgets and finalize grant applications, student input is always appreciated.

Club Day

SGA announced the next Club Day event, to be themed “Carnival,” will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on March 12
