The Del Mar College Student Government Association was named runner-up for Chapter of the Year at the annual Texas Junior College Student Government Association Convention.
SGA President Denise Mugabe also won first place in the poetry contest at the convention.
“It felt amazing to win as an individual but even more rewarding to win on behalf of Del Mar College,” Mugabe said.
Beverly Cage, SGA adviser, was selected as the runner-up for Adviser of the Year and is the new 2014-15 Region VI adviser. Payton Jones, an SGA officer, was selected as the new TJCSGA Region VI secretary.
