BC hosts a “taco” ’bout SGA involvement

Jason Mena, Reporter

Bakersfield College Student Government Association Officers held a public meeting on Aug. 29 in the Levan Center for the student government and staff members to introduce themselves to students and answer some questions as the fall semester kicks off.

BC Dining Commons provided tacos and beverages for the event with an array of options between carne asada, chicken, and even a vegetarian alternative.

SGA President Shehrazad “Raz” Barraj, Vice President Brenda Abad, and the directors and senators who lead the student body gave insight on some of the activities they engage in, on and off campus. President Barraj is also a KCCD Student Trustee and provides advice and a young perspective at the monthly KCCD Board of Trustees Meetings.

Director of Legislative affairs Harvind Grewal is a board member for CA Coalition for Youth, a Statewide nonprofit Organization in charge of serving disconnected students between the ages of 12-24.

“Follow the BCSGA social media pages, all the upcoming events are posted there” Vice President Abad said. “Or join SGA, there are plenty of open positions including Director of Finance, Secretary, and seven senator positions.”

If you’d like to join SGA, applications are in “Student Government” under the Student Services tab on the BC Website. The Codes of the Bakersfield Renegade Association (COBRA) is also located there.
