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 Activities 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 serving as a liaison between the faculty and administration and our students.

Student Government Association 2021-2022 Executive Board
President: Huda Patel
Hey Eagles! My name is Huda Patel, and I am the SGA President for the 2021-2022 academic year. I am from India, but I was brought up in the Middle East (Saudi Arabia and Qatar). I am in my second year at Wake Tech and am currently pursuing an Associate in Arts degree along with some accounting and finance certificate courses. I plan on transferring to a 4-year university by Fall 2022 to pursue accounting as my major. Moving from an entirely different culture and education system was a challenge but Wake Tech has given me so many opportunities to learn and grow in the past year that it is now my goal to contribute and give back to the community. I also plan to help other students become aware of all the amazing and useful resources that Wake Tech has to offer. I want to help students get involved on their campuses and bring the WTCC community closer. It is an honor to be a member of the SGA’s Executive Board and I look forward to representing and serving you as President.
Vice President: Sali Mohammed
Hello Eagles! My name is Sali Mohammed, and I am the Vice President of Wake Tech Student Government Association for the 2021-2022 academic year. I was born in Karen, Eritrea, but I have moved a lot, so I lived here and there. This is my second year here at Wake Tech, and I am currently in the Associate of Engineering program. I plan to transfer to North Carolina State University in order to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering. I am very excited to be part of the Student Government, and I am ready to serve and represent the Wake Tech student body. My goal is to advertise the different opportunities that Wake Tech offers its students and create a stronger sense of community. It is an honor to be part of this association, and I look forward to representing, serving, and getting to learn more about everything and everyone.
Secretary: Andrew Pratt
Hello Eagles! My name is Andrew Pratt, and I am the Secretary for the Student Government Association for the 2021-2022 academic year. I am from Holly Springs, North Carolina. I am a first-year college student majoring in Business Administration. I am coming back to school after working for a few years to pursue a degree and gain knowledge that will help me run my business. I run and own a photography business and photography is one of my favorite things to do. Other hobbies I enjoy are golfing, watching sports games, hanging out with friends, and meeting new people. I am interested in Student Government because I want to be able to voice the concerns of students who may be in their first year of college or coming back to school after working for a while. I look forward to working with my fellow Student Government members and meeting a lot of the students here at Wake Tech!
Public Information Officer: Ernesto Gallegos Torres
Hi everyone! My name is Ernesto Gallegos Torres, and I am the Public Information Officer for the 2021-2022 academic year. I was born in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, and came to North Carolina in 2002. I am a Business-Administration major at Wake Tech. I plan to obtain my bachelor’s degree and possibly open my very own health-centered business in the future. As a disabled Mexican college student, I know how difficult it is to adjust to campus and I also know how nerve-wracking it can be to ask for help. However, in Wake Tech, I have learned that asking for help can pave the way. As a member of the SGA, my goal will be to reach out to all students and ensure that they are aware of all the resources they can possibly obtain. Spreading the word on these resources could help many college students like myself who are not always aware of the many things to which they qualify. I would also like to create a space where students with disabilities or anyone can come to me for help and make them aware of the fact that they can participate in the activities on campus. I am very excited to bring my perspectives to the SGA and grow alongside other members while serving all students.
Treasurer: Marissa Iams
Hello Everyone! My name is Marissa Iams, and I am the SGA Treasurer for the 2021-2022 academic year. I am originally from San Diego, California, and I moved to North Carolina almost six years ago. I am currently completing my second year at Wake Tech, and I am working on earning my Associate in Arts degree. After Wake Tech, I plan to transfer to East Carolina University I plan to receive a Bachelor of Criminal Justice and then a Master of Social Work. My future career goal is to become a Juvenile Probation Officer to help adolescents turn their lives around for the better. As a veteran of the United States Air Force, I know I can convey discipline, accountability, and teamwork to the SGA and the student body. My goal is to help the SGA create a fiscally responsible budget. I plan to make sure funds are spent wisely for the benefit of the entire student body. I am honored to be a part of the SGA’s Executive Board, and I am excited for all the fantastic things we will accomplish this school year.
