SALISBURY – Leslie Brown of Granite Quarry, a college transfer student pursing her Associate in Science, is the new Student Government Association (SGA) President at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College.
“We are proud to welcome Leslie as an ex officio member of the College’s Board of Trustees,” said Carl M. Short, Chair of the Rowan-Cabarrus Board of Trustees.
Brown was introduced as the 2013-14 SGA leader at a recent Board of Trustees meeting. Originally born in Steubenville, Ohio, Brown relocated to North Carolina in 2001 with an opportunity to manage local restaurants in Salisbury and Concord. With the desire to continue her education and set an example for her teenage children, Brown decided to pursue a degree at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College in the spring of 2010.
“As SGA President, one of my focuses for the 2013-2014 academic year will be on the College’s environmental initiatives. I am excited about the College’s efforts to dramatically cut print waste,” said Brown. “This year, I also hope to encourage students to take full advantage of the Academic & Career Advising Center.”
Brown enjoys the atmosphere of a laboratory and discovering new things. Career exploration has led her to the field of microbiology, where she would like to make an impact locally, nationally and globally in the area of parasitology (the study of parasitic infections).
“I believe the Student Government Association can help students feel connected to the College and the greater community, while campus resources assist students in their goal of college completion,” said Brown. “I am looking forward to being the voice for students as Rowan-Cabarrus Community College navigates forward!”
