Nine Mount Wachusett Community College students were elected by their peers to student government leadership positions recently.
The vote that took place on April 12 set the student representation at the college for the next year. Those representatives are:
Allison Guthrie of Templeton
Riya Patel of Ashburnham
Ethan Williams of Leominster
Ayana Brodeur-Edmonds of Fitchburg
Kwakor Quartey of Shirley
At Large Representatives:
Oluwatosin Ashaju of Fitchburg
Onome Ivylynn Kekeke of Fitchburg
Courtney Rouse of Fitchburg
Also elected was Dylan Doyle who will serve as student trustee on the college’s board of trustees. As the student representative on the board, Dylan will be both a member of the Student Government Association and a voice for the students at board meetings.
“I really want to represent the interests of the students,” said Dylan. “I really connected with the community. That’s part of what motivated me to get involved.”
The Clinton resident said that after a semester at the school, he knew that he wanted to step up and be a voice for other MWCC students. As a dual-enrollment student in the Pathways Early College Innovation School, Dylan will be entering his second year at Mount Wachusett Community College as he takes on this new role. He is majoring in Liberal Arts and Sciences. Doyle will be sworn in this fall.
