Letter from the SGA President
I am Aaron Ivory Ledet, your 2013-2014 Student Government Association (SGA) President. I hail from Griffin, GA where I graduated from Spalding High School with Honors. This afforded me the opportunity to attend the historic and illustrious Miles College on a Presidential Scholarship. Currently, I am a junior double majoring in Chemistry and Mathematics. Since matriculating at Miles, I have held various offices such as the Vice-President of United Negro College Fund (UNCF) Pre-Alumni Council, SGA Business Manager, freshman class Treasurer, and Honors Curriculum Vice-President of International Affairs.
I can sincerely say that I love my experiences at Dear Old Miles. Nevertheless, a new scholastic year has come filled with novel and exciting opportunities. With that being said, it is my honor to warmly welcome the incoming and returning students to Miles 2013-2014. To the incoming and current students, my one-piece of wisdom for you is to learn balance between your social, academic, work, and spiritual life because all four needs must be met for you to truly be happy and grow.
This year will be a great year. I proclaim that, for the SGA has huge plans. The first and foremost goal is to rebuild this organization to its former glory and teach the students how much power we have. As our president Dr. George T. French, Jr. always proudly declares: "Here, at Miles, we are PUTTING OUR STUDENTS FIRST", and the SGA embraces that mantra.
This year begins with the enhancement of our campus as we now embrace three new buildings: Bishop Teresa E. Snorton Residential Hall, George T. French Student Activity Center, and the Welcome and AdmissionsCenter. To continue and even amplify the excitement of this year, the Student Government Association challenges you to leave your legacy at your alma mater--Dear Old Miles. Join organizations, be an active member, and if one does not fit your wants or needs, start one that does. My aim is not to overwhelm you with activities, but rather inundate you with knowledge and experience to survive in College and thrive in the real world. Remember, that together we, the students, can make this an excellent year. Good Luck and welcome to Miles 2013-2014 (a year unlike no other)!
Aaron Ivory Ledet
Student Government Association President
