Hartselle alum elected for UA SGA’s First Year Council
Special to the Enquirer
Hartselle alum Samantha Simmons has been selected to serve on The University of Alabama SGA’s 2023-24 First Year Council.
Acting as the official representative body of the freshman class, FYC is an application-based extracurricular made up of 65 freshmen that meet once a week throughout the 28-week program. The councilors learn how government works and how to turn ideas into solutions by passing and implementing legislation.
Through this experience, students receive an in-depth introduction to campus through guided leadership development opportunities and become the go-to representative for the SGA with their peers. FYC members also learn how to work with fellow councilors and other members of the SGA to understand and address common challenges through the creation of policy and programs.
Simmons is a 2023 graduate of Hartselle High School. She is the daughter of Jimmy and Debbie Simmons.
