Let RCSGA know that you care about the decisions we make! Your vote really does make a difference.
On May 4th and 5th 2010 the SGA hosted the first annual Rubber Duck Race. This was an event to promote fellowship amongst Richland students. As everybody knows the great Thunderduck is our mascot. Every student got a chance to adopt a Rubber Duck and decorate it after his or her liking.
All the adopted Ducks then participated in the great race on the center lake of our campus. Our school president Dr. Kay Eggleston started the race by tossing all the ducks into the lake.
In the end it came down to an exciting photo finish. Prices were awarded to the first three and the last ducks. There were also prices for the best designs and decorations.
On February 25th and 26th the SGA hosted a Haiti Relief Drive. We were selling Krispy Kreme Donuts in the cafeteria area for that cause.
It was our goal to raise as much funds as possible to donate to the American Red Cross. The response from students and staff was overwhelmingly positive. We sold over 200 dozen donuts and together with other generous cash donations we raised a total of $1200.
The new SGA President and Vice President delivered the check to a representative of the American Red Cross.
Richland College is a member of the TJCSGA State Convention. (Texas Junior College Student Government Association) and attends the annual state conference each year. This is just another way we are providing opportunities for our SGA members to grow.
