NCC Student Government Association President Introduced

Kody Wooten

Nash Community College welcomes Kody Wooten as Student Government Association (SGA) president for the 2020-2021 academic year.

Outgoing SGA president Tiffany Boswell introduced Wooten in a Board of Trustees meeting held via teleconference on May 18, 2020.

The 24-year-old was born in Wilson, NC. He is a veteran of the North Carolina Army National Guard where he served four years as a combat medic. “This is where he found his love for medicine and helping others, which led him to his dream of becoming a nurse,” Boswell said. Wooten will enter NCC’s Associate Degree Nursing program in the fall.

The SGA President represents the student body as a non-voting member of the College’s Board of Trustees. Under the direction of advisors, Associate Dean of Student Engagement, Kara Deans and Michael Stallings, Library Support Specialists, the SGA plans and implements, throughout each semester, social activities for the student body. The SGA is the primary organization responsible for providing activities and opportunities that will enhance formal educational experiences.

Wooten is a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success and served previously as SGA’s parliamentarian. “Although being in a position of leadership is somewhat new for Kody, he is very excited and humbled to have been chosen for this position. He is thankful for all the wisdom and skills that he will learn during his term.”

In addition to his academic pursuits, Wooten is employed by a locally co-owned restaurant group managing Books and Beans and serving at Barley and Burger and Tipsy Tomato.

“We believe his diverse background, love for helping others, his drive, and the guidance of his former officers and advisors make Kody an excellent fit for this position,” Boswell said. “He is looking forward to meeting everyone.”

On behalf of the new study body president, Boswell thanked the Board of Trustees and NCC President Lew Hunnicutt for trusting him in the position and for their support in maintaining a strong Student Government Association at NCC. “With an extremely caring and committed staff, he fell in love with this college, and ultimately that is what led to his decision to run for SGA President,” Boswell said.

Tiffany Boswell graduated from NCC in May with a degree in Nursing.
