I have received numerous commendations from teachers and supervisors for demonstrating hard work, team building and leadership skills. I enjoy working with others and am a cooperative and dedicated team player.” As for their future SGA goals, they are focused on the students of LLC. “I want to show my fellow students at Lake Land College that your voice can be heard. I want students at Lake Land College to believe that their opinions matter, and I want to ensure that the students at Lake Land are given the best college experience.” Daughtrey said.

As Zumbahlen said, “I joined SGA because I feel that this organization can help develop my leadership skills. I have always been curious about student body affairs and hope this can be an opportunity to make a difference in this school. I have many ideas that I think would be very helpful to SGA and to help benefit the school. I have also been interested in what goes on in our school and would like to be active in the part of making those decisions which affect us as students.” Meanwhile, Zumbahlen’s goals are simple, “My goal as a SGA member to provide an official voice through which student opinion may be expressed and promote the rights of students.”
