HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University Student Government Association President Christopher Barcelona was among seven other presidents recognized Friday (April 25) by the University of Louisiana System Board of Supervisors for their efforts as student leaders.
System President Sally Clausen praised the group for their collective work in reaching out to K-12 students as part of the “R U Ready for College” campaign and their roles in the system-sponsored Extreme Spring Break where students work with Habitat for Humanity in hurricane-stricken areas.
“These student leaders represent the best and brightest,” said Clausen. “Not only have they worked hard on their own campuses, but they have also tackled tough statewide issues like the high costs of textbooks and campus safety. Their work will have a positive impact on all of Louisiana’s students.”
Barcelona, a senior history major from Marrero, was recognized specifically for helping to implement Southeastern’s Lion Traxx Shuttle System, a network of three buses that provides transportation for students around the campus, and for organizing the Youth Leadership Conference designed to provide leadership training for high schools on the north shore.
Barcelona, who expects to graduate from Southeastern in December, plans on going to law school.
