SGA Award Nominations Announced

The annual Student Government Association awards are around the corner once again! The Suffolk community nominated individuals, organizations, and departments to be recognized on April 11th for their contributions to the university. Each category’s nominees were announced last week, after being narrowed down by the nominations committee.

“The nominations committee, made up of a small group of diverse individuals, narrows the nominees down based on the quality of their nominations,” said Brianna Silva, SGA Secretary. “All club presidents are invited to take part in the final voting for the recipient of the award.”

This year, the Las Vegas-themed awards night will be held in the Sargent Hall Function Room. There will be black jack and roulette dealers in the reception before the awards. The night will be hosted by Sam Witts and Laurel Gozzo of Seriously Bent, Suffolk’s improv group.

“Expect a lot of flash,” said Silva.

Other events include a performance by Rebecca Zama from Soulfully Versed and the ceremonial “passing of the gavel” to the incoming SGA president. Former Dean Nancy C. Stoll will also make an appearance to present the lifetime achievement award named after her: The Dr. Nancy C. Stoll Award for Commitment to Student Life.

While there are no new award categories this year, they did combine the “Outstanding…” awards for CAS and NESAD, since NESAD is a part of the college.
