SGA Student of the Month November

SGA Student of the Month November

Congratulations to Astelyn Saint-Juste, Palm Beach State College​, named the FCSAA Student Government Division Student of the Month for November.  Astelyn was nominated by his SGA advisor, Lindsey Goldstein. 

Here’s what Ms. Goldstein shared with us about Astelyn: “Astelyn truly hit the ground running with his role in SGA. From day one of his induction last summer, his undeniable energy has been the backbone of the success of the executive board making changes and advocating for their fellow students. As parliamentarian, Astelyn was instrumental in keeping the board on task though out the editing process of the constitution while maintaining Roberts Rules of Order. Astelyn has also developed an ad-hoc committee to tackle the advocacy issue of homeless students. Astelyn is truly passionate about this issue and has also helped give student input to create a survey and website. Through his leadership, later this semester the SGA board will also be hosting a Fashion Show and donating the clothes to Panther’s Closet which is an on-campus thrift store designed to help students in need.”

Further, “Astelyn exemplifies leadership by going above and beyond to make students feel welcome. He signed up for multiple shifts the first week of classes to hand out maps and flyers to new students and answer any of their questions. Astelyn has consistently done more than what is expected of him, such as doing extra office hours and assisting his team with their tasks. Astelyn understands his role in setting an example for his fellow students. He has helped shy senators come out of their shell and always encourages them to participate. He has helped students promote starting new clubs on campus and recently joined the men’s mentorship program on campus. Astelyn leads by example and truly reflects that leadership is more than just a position title.”

Congratulations to this outstanding student, and our thanks to Mrs. Goldstein for taking the time to nominate him for this recognition.
