Palm Beach Gardens Student Government Association President Joe Brownlee

Greetings, fellow students:

My name is Joe Brownlee, and I’m privileged to be serving as your 2014-2015 President of the Student Government Association (SGA) at Palm Beach Gardens. Beginning with this issue of the Beachcomber and continuing in the future, you will be able to turn to this section and reada brief overview of what your SGA is doing on your behalf.

Now, for those who may not know, your SGA is tasked with several important missions, themost vital of which is being your primary voice of advocacy to the College’s administration, faculty, and staff.

But more than that, we also meet with government officials at the local, state, and federal levels to discuss a myriad of issues, like tuition rates and residency status that affect more than one million students in the Florida College System. In addition to advocacy, your SGA is also responsible for hosting many of the events our students have come to expect each year, like the talent and fashion shows.

In the coming weeks, you will begin to hear about the new Signature Programs we will be rolling out that will help save you time and money. In the meantime, however, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please know that your SGA is here for you; and as your president, my door is always open: brownleejr@my.palmbeachstate.edu.

Respectfully,

Joseph R. Brownlee

SGA President, Gardens
