“After spending the past three years at Niagara College, it is my wish to positively contribute to the institution and most importantly to be a positive force for the good of my fellow students. Sitting on the Board of Governors representing students’ interests is an onerous task that must not be taken lightly. My candidacy will provide the needed candid mouthpiece, eyepiece and earpiece for the students at the Board. This role and opportunity is very important to me. My intention is to increase students’ visibility so that through me students can participate and positively contribute to issues that concern not only our educational wellbeing but those aspects that predetermine our future. I intend to actively involve fellow students in the decision making process through formal and informal engagements. This is why I have decided to come out of my shell and run for the position to make a change. I am asking all students for support and to join me in this journey for a seat on the Niagara College Board of Governors.
“Hello there, my name is Naasson Huyler and I’m a second year Human Resources international student. Some or many of you ladies and gents might have spotted/communicated with me on all the campuses especially Welland and Niagara on the Lake. I am a very goal oriented, optimistic, and energetic individual. I believe that I would be great addition to the Board of Governors at Niagara College because:
• I’m very involved with the College through volunteering on and off campus.
• I’m a proud member of LEADs and SEALs which are part of the Centre Student Engagement and Leadership.
• I’m an executive member of the HR@NC association and a member of the HRPA.
If you would like to know more about myself and my qualities then please feel free to stop me in the hallways and ask; because there’s so much more to know about me than just a paragraph.”
My name is Matt Cowell, I’m 22 and am currently in my 3rd year of the International Business Program. I am an energetic, out-going young man who strives to be involved and make a difference! I have developed great leadership and communication skills over the years that have led me to be a member of LEAD NC and two consecutive years on SAC currently as the Executive Vice-President. I am the current student representative on the Niagara College Board of Governors and bring ample experience forward for this coming year if elected. My goal for the upcoming year is to increase awareness amongst students to enhance their college experience and voice the concerns that matter most to you!
Shane Malcolm, NCSAC President.
Shane Malcolm, current Niagara College Student Administrative Council (NCSAC) President, has been re-elected by the current NCSAC board of directors to remain in office for the 2015-16 school year.
Before being elected NCSAC President for his first term in 2014, Shane previously served the Niagara-on-the-Lake executive team as Director of Clubs and Volunteers and Executive Vice President.
In total, Shane has been involved with the organization for the last 3 years and he is excited to be back for his fourth. “I am really honored to be back for another year. NCSAC has had a terrific year around student advocacy on all levels- institutionally, regionally and provincially and I look forward to embracing that drive in year two as well,” said Malcolm.
In his first year as President, Malcolm has been heavily involved in providing advocacy for Niagara College students, most recently for a seamless transit system in Niagara. It is one of the many actions he hopes to continue in his second year. “I am very proud of all the events, programs and initiatives that we were able to provide this year and I only see a bigger, better and more impactful NCSAC presence on campus and in the community next year,” continued Malcolm.
