I am honored to step into the role of President of the Student Government Association after a year of being the Vice President. I am currently a senior studying Mechanical Engineering and I am extremely excited for everything that is to come in my final year here at MSU! I am very involved on campus and am looking forward to becoming even more so. I have gotten a lot of leadership experience from all of my activities on campus and off but this is by far the biggest and most exciting opportunity yet. I decided to take on the role of President not only to help the student opinions become reality, but also to really lead the student body to become more united as a whole. Out of this year I hope to see a greater and more positive communication between students and overall more collaboration among everyone on campus (faculty, staff and students). Throughout everything we face this year I believe that “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm” (Ralph Waldo Emerson), so if we stay positive and stick together, the possibilities are endless!
I am Leona Sandiford a Senior Theatre Arts Major in the college of Fine Arts. My hobbies include reading, dancing and modelling. It gives me great pleasure to serve Midwestern State University in the capacity of Vice President of The Student Government Association. I am a believer in service above self so I am therefore extremely buoyed at the prospect of bringing smiles and cheer to the faces and hearts of those I am now indebted to serve.
I am currently a volunteer to various groups and causes, on and off campus including; The Boys and Girls Club, Zundy Middle School, Alpha Chi Honor Society, The Caribbean Students Organization and Kappa Delta Chi Sorority Inc. I am also one who believes in the maxim so eloquently stated by (John M. Richardson, Jr.) in saying; “When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.” And based on the evidence of my life experiences, starting from a rural village on my tiny island of St. Lucia, to the present, I would certainly like to think of myself as one who makes things happen.
I have also garnered invaluable experience from many organizations and my eight years teaching experience prior to attending MSU. These variedexperiences have given me incites that should prove invaluable in allowing me to place students’ goals and objectives in perspective and in effectively executing a plan to foster change in that regard. I am looking forward to being at your service.
My name is Wendy Frederick and I was born in St. Lucia one of the islands found within the archipelago of the Caribbean. I am married with two beautiful kids Seth and Jody. Presently I am a senior pursuing my Undergraduate degree in Finance and Accounting. It is my intention after graduation to obtain my CFA and CPA. Outside of the classroom I enjoy spending time with family, and participating in campus organizations. I also have a passion for dance and drama.
Before attending Midwestern State University I worked at the St. Lucia Customs and Excise Department as a Customs officer for fifteen years. Since coming to Midwestern I have truly developed as both a person and a leader through involvement in various organizations and activities; most notably SGA. I previously served as the President of the Financial Management Association, and I am currently a Student Ambassador and a member of the Dillard College of Business Student Advisory Board.
If there is one thing I love more than this institution is the students. It is indeed an honor and a privilege to serve and represent them. I look forward to serving the student body, and hope to play an integral role in the further development of our student activities.
