Cobb to lead student government


Trina Cobb, a medical office administration student from Washington, has been chosen to lead the student government at Beaufort County Community College for the 2012-2013 academic year, school officials announced this week.
Cobb said she will work during the coming year to improve communication among students at the college.
“Some of the students are unaware of the resources on campus available to them,” she said. “Whether its students who need help with writing assignments or information on careers available to them, it’s important that they have the information they need.”
Other student government officers for the year are Christopher Lynch, vice president; Lorri Brooks Moree, secretary; LaLether Shepard, treasurer; Brittney McCullter, parliamentarian; Victoria M. Ortiz, historian, and Kristen Baker, special populations.
Cobb is a graduate of Chocowinity High School and obtained her certification as a Nurse Aide I and II from Beaufort County Community College. She is employed as a nursing assistant at Vidant Beaufort Hospital. Cobb and her husband, Milton, have seven children. After graduating from BCCC, Cobb plans to work in a local medical office while pursuing a bachelor’s degree.
The Student Government Association at BCCC provides an organized avenue of student involvement in the college. The SGA implements and plans activities that provide students with social and service projects that interest them.
In her role as SGA president, Cobb will serve as an ex-officio member of the BCCC Board of Trustees.
In coming weeks, the SGA will host the American Red Cross Bloodmobile on the BCCC campus, a fall festival and a Veterans Day observance.
