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.

General Assembly Meetings

SGA General Assembly meetings are held at 2:00 p.m. the fourth week of every month. The SGA General Assembly includes all the Senators and Executive Board members in addition to all club representatives and students. All students are welcome to attend these meetings.

President-David Kirstein

Hey!  My name is David T Kirstein, and I’m the SGA President for the ’17-’18 school year.  I am a native Apexian who is currently double majoring in Associate in Arts and Associate in Science.  I am grateful for Wake Tech because this school has been there for me like no other school has been, and my time as an Eagle has been eventful and full of growth because of it.  I love SGA because it is a viable option for students who want their interests to be represented to administration – for students who want to be heard.


Vice President-Tony Tran

Wow! To start, I would like to say that during my time here at Wake Tech, I have learned and grown so much. I am currently in the pursuit of my Associate's in Engineering at Wake Tech. Afterward, I plan to transfer to NC State for Aerospace Engineering. I am a lover of all things: nature, food, physical activities, and most of all, life. I want to help inspire people by telling my stories of perseverance and success at Wake Tech! SGA has provided me with plenty of opportunities to grow myself as a person and a leader.


Secretary-Cora Bartolo

Hey guys! My name is Cora Bartolo and I’m the SGA Secretary for the ‘17-’18 school year. I’m originally from Michoacán de Ocampo, Mexico. I am pursuing an Associate’s in Applied Science degree in Business Administration. I’m really glad I joined the SGA because it has helped me in developing skills that will use in my career. While being at Wake Tech and joining the SGA, I have met and worked with amazing people who helped me throughout my time in college. My goal is to help other students know about the resources and opportunities that Wake Tech has to offer.

Hi, my name is Matt Palka, and I'm Wake Tech Student Government's Public Information Officer.  Although I was born in Connecticut, I've lived in the Raleigh area since I was four. I'm completing both my Associate in Arts and Associate in Science. My favorite thing about Wake Tech is the people!


Treasurer-Gael E. Mbolela

Hey everyone, my name is Gael E. Mbolela. I am the SGA Treasurer for the ’17-18’ school year. I currently live in Apex, North Carolina. I came out from Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo. I am pursuing my Associate’s degree in Engineering.
