SGA applications are now opened to be filled out.

As the academic year approaches to an end, Robinson’s Student Government Association, or SGA, has opened the application process for students wishing to join the organization.  SGA offers various leadership, collaboration and representation roles for IB and traditional program students.

“Students should apply for SGA because it’s a really good way to get involved with the school and with both IB and traditional people. It’s also a good way to be more active at Robinson,” SGA President Tara Kuklen (’24) said.

To apply for a position within SGA, students must complete the application form available via the link provided in the Robinson High School SGA Instagram bio.  Applications close April 8.

Eligibility for candidacy requires the completion of the application including endorsements from two teachers and maintaining a minimum GPA of at least 3.0. This ensures applicants have proven that they can demonstrate academic excellence and interpersonal skills essential for joining the club.

“We are looking for some who’s willing to [put] forth the effort and care for the community and wants to make a difference,” Kuklen (’24) said.

Various positions are available such as Student Government President, Vice President and Recording Secretary along with new and old roles on the applications. Students also have the option of running for class president for their class which entails leading meetings, organization of events, and representing their class in student government.

Whether you are applying for leadership or a role as a general member each position requires a time commitment and is expected to put forth a collaborative effort. If you are interested in applying, the application is set to close April 8, affording lots of time for interested candidates to prepare and submit their applications. Students with questions can ask Renee Kowalik in room B-204.

About the Contributor
Whittaley Bowden
Whittaley Bowden, Senior Staff Writer
Whittaley Bowden is a senior at Robinson and a senior staff writer for Knight Writers. This is her second year on staff. Bowden grew up in a multicultural household, so in her free time, she enjoys cooking lots of different foods. She has moved past baking as she has grown older and has started to experiment with her own creations and new food trends that she has seen on social media. This reflects her favorite section to write, which is multimedia, specifically MidKnight snacks. “I started getting into cooking because I just loved to explore new food and make my own recipes to enjoy," Bowden said. Bowden is very involved with Robinson and in many different clubs and extracurriculars. One of these clubs is Future Health Care Professionals of America (FHCPA), where she is the secretary. Aside from all her extracurriculars, Bowden really enjoys listening to music and has a very broad taste indulging in multiple genres such as Afro beats, K-pop and a little alternative music. “I've been really into Afro beats recently because it seems to be the big thing over this summer,” Bowden said. Bowden has really been thinking about her future recently especially since her time at Robinson is coming to an end. She has said she wants to continue her education at a college either in-state at the University of South Florida (USF) or out-of-state at the University of Georgia (UGA). "I would definitely want to major in biomedical science because I have always loved science class in school," Bowden said. Profile by Sofia Scott
