Student Government Association

Welcome to the Wake Tech Student Government Association (SGA). All students are cordially invited - and strongly encouraged - to get involved with SGA! Our General Assembly meetings are held the fourth week of every month and are a great place to let your voice be heard. We hope to see you there. 


About The SGA

The SGA is the campus organization that represents the interest of all Wake Tech Community College students. Each curriculum student enrolled at Wake Tech is required to pay the Student Administration Fee; therefore, each person is a member of the Wake Tech SGA, and is governed by its rules and regulations. The constitution of the SGA is the basis for fulfilling our commitment to serve as a liaison between the faculty and administration and our students.

Student Government Association 2018-2019 Executive Board 


President: Jose Fabre Jr.

Hey everyone! My name is Jose Fabre Jr., the SGA President for 2018-2019. I was born in the Bronx, NY, and raised in “Quisqueya la Bella”, Dominican Republic. I moved to Perth Amboy, NJ, at the age of 9, and moved to Raleigh, NC, in 2015, after I graduated from High School. I’m currently working towards two degrees, Associate in Engineering and Associate in Science. Wake Tech has been a blessing to me because there are many resources available, like Success Coaches, Individualized Learning Center, SPEAK Center, STEM Center, and more. I decided to become part of the Student Government Association because I want to reach WTCC students by making our campus activities both fun and informative, achieving spectacular learning outcomes. Life is challenging, but I know I can do all things through him who strengthens me.


Vice President: Tara Courtney

Hello! My name is Tara Courtney, and I am the SGA Vice President for the spring 2019 semester. I was born and raised in Laguna Hills, California, until I moved to Raleigh in 2006. I am currently completing my second year at Wake Tech, in which I will earn both Associate in Arts and Associate in Science degrees. After my time at Wake Tech, I will continue to a 4-year university where I will get my bachelor’s in nursing, and eventually, a doctorate in nurse anesthesia. Wake Tech has impacted my life in ways I never could have imagined. During my time here, I have been exposed to a multitude of opportunities and made connections to last a lifetime. I joined SGA because I wanted to ensure that other students’ experiences at Wake Tech are as wonderful, if not better, than my own. I strive to listen to and represent the student body to the best of my ability, and in doing so, I am excited and honored to serve as Vice President this semester.
