The American Student Government Association (ASGA) named COR the student government of the month. A.S.W.C Plamen Ganev is proud of the honor and hopes it will help the members continue their hard work.

Ganev said that they were picked because of their accomplishments. “As far as I know, a committee picks the student government of the month based on their achievements,” Ganev said. After being in contact with the chair of the committee, Ganev said that he sent information about COR to ASGA. “We were going to be considered for the student government of the month award, but no one knew until yesterday [Tuesday, April 12],” Ganev said. “I think that COR has shown that it is a reliable student government. Moreover, the advisors from ASGA understand that a student government can be working very hard, but the students do not always see this direct positive effect that is expected.”

Ganev hopes the award will serve as encouragement to COR. “To me, the award is important in only one aspect, to encourage us to keep working hard while improving our student government and our school,” Ganev said. “I hope this is how the rest of the COR members feel, and if they do not feel the same way, I hope I can pass my excitement on to them.”

According to Ganev, COR became a member of ASGA in 2004 after Director of Activities Barny Peake brought up the organization and the possible benefits from being involved in it. “Moreover, because at that point we were one of the first colleges to join ASGA, we became a founding member,” Ganev said.

Currently, ASGA represents 204 institutions from 41 states. According to the organization’s website, they are a source for student governments across the nation by offering support and ideas.
