Central Lakes College Student Senate: Central Lakes College’s Presidents’ Student Leadership Award Recipient

Central Lakes College Student Senate

The Central Lakes College Student Senate has displayed an above and beyond approach to civic engagement on their campus, the surrounding community, and their state. Each semester they plan and participate in a number of volunteer activities that enhance their leadership abilities. This past academic year they have hosted and been involved in such events as Adopt A Highway, Special Olympics, Community Clean-Up Days, Red Cross Blood Drives, Food Shelf Drives, Get Out The Vote, State Capital Rally’s, and their most successful civic engagement event the CLC Single Parents With Children Christmas Party. This is an event that this student organization has held the past 4 years. The event has seen significant growth year after year and this year the event was attended by 100 kids and their single parents. The Student Senate works many hours making sure that each and every child that attends the Christmas party receives a gift from Santa. The party includes games for the kids and their parent, as well as crafts, Christmas stories, and food to fill their little bellies. It is wonderful to see the Student Senate which is comprised of two groups from separate campuses come together and work hand in hand to help so many of their fellow students. This group truly showcases all of the attributes that make civic engagement such an amazing experience.
