You might say it was an experience to be treasured.

Serving as the treasurer for Gaston College’s student government association taught Jenny Lopez-Saldivar both leadership skills and the meaning of friendship, according to college spokeswoman Stephanie Michael Pickett this week. Lopez-Saldivar is among this month’s Gaston College graduates. She intends to continue her education at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where she plans to major in social work.

“I wanted to be part of the SGA so I could serve the student body,” she said recently. “I learned that being in the SGA is not just about planning events and having meetings. It goes beyond that. We have become a family.”

Lopez-Saldivar anticipated that serving on the SGA executive board would allow her to develop leadership skills. But she gained much more through the experience. She has learned “the meaning of friendship and teamwork,” as she informed.

“We became a support system for one another,” she added, “and the bonds that we created have helped us grow not only as leaders but also as individuals. I have learned a lot from my peers. They have inspired me to always reach for the stars and beyond.”

After earning a bachelor’s degree at UNCC, Lopez-Saldivar plans to work toward a master’s degree in counseling.

“I would love to work with high school or college students to help them navigate through difficult times,” she said. “I want to be able to provide information and support for people who may need someone to encourage them.”

Pickett continued that the Gaston College SGA is known as the voice of the students. All students are welcomed to attend SGA meetings and voice their opinions.

For information on becoming involved as a student leader, call (704) 922-6472 or visit the SGA office in Room 213 at the Myers Center on the Dallas Campus of Gaston College.
