With the 2012 election season now in the history books, Salt Lake Community College is celebrating a landmark victory.
SLCC will be crowned victorious for registering more students to vote than any other higher education institution in Utah. The competition, which was sanctioned by the office of Lt. Gov. Greg Bell, was part of campaign to get students more engaged in the political process.
“It really shows the overall attitude of the students,” said SLCC student body president Aaron Starks. “It shows the direction and the leadership that our student leaders have at the school, and that is to promote civic engagement.”
President Starks wants students to take pride in this achievement for the student body at SLCC.
The inaugural trophy presentation will be held Wednesday Feb. 13 from 11:00am to 2:00pm at the Student Event Center on the Taylorsville Redwood Campus.
The event will include a trophy ceremony, presentations from the lieutenant governor and the Education First initiative, along with food and drinks for all who attend.
