Daniel Marold, Brookhaven College Student Government Association (SGA) president, can add another presidential title to his résumé.
Marold was selected to serve as president of the executive team for the American Student Association of Community Colleges, ASACC, at the summer leadership conference on June 17 in Park City, Utah. This appointment marks the second time that a student from the Dallas County Community College District has been selected to head the ASACC board, said Yasaman Contractor, Brookhaven College assistant director of Student Life and student government advisor.
The ASACC is the student-affiliate of the American Association of Community Colleges. Students must apply for the leadership conference and be selected to attend. At the conference, students are interviewed and matched with executive roles within the ASACC. As president, Daniel will serve as the principle spokesperson and ambassador for the association, work with the executive team to set the direction of the entire organization, and coordinate student conferences and initiatives.
In April, Marold was appointed president of the Texas Junior College Student Government Association when Brookhaven College and the student government were voted as the year’s President School. That was the first time a DCCCD college had been chosen for that leadership position.
The purpose of the ASACC is to enhance students’ leadership skills and to address issues of student need. During the past decade, the ASACC has been key in the passage of Section 127 of the Internal Revenue Service Code, which provides full deductibility to companies that pay their employees’ college-related expenses. Other ASACC-supported legislation includes the Direct Student Loan Program, Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act, and increases in Pell grants for students in need.
