Little Named SGA President

Richard Little is serving as SGA President of Northeastern Technical College (NETC) for the 2019-2020 academic year. Little, a Chesterfield native, is attending NETC majoring in Machine Tool Technology. He served as an SGA Senator for a year and is excited about the opportunity to serve in his new position.

Attending NETC has allowed Little to meet new people. He enjoys building relationships and engaging with them to put a smile on their face. Since his term has started, he has met even more students, which is a huge plus for him.

He encourages all students to get involved with SGA events and activities on campus. "It's a great way to connect with others and build a strong communal environment," he said.

This year SGA hopes to resurrect some of the clubs that were on campus in the past, in addition to organizing some new ones. As President, Little wants to make sure social and recreational activities are a part of the college experience at NETC.

Little is a member of the NETC Trumpet Program. Being around like-minded males who are working to make lives better for themselves and their families is motivating to him. The training and seminars have been a key component in shifting his mindset and keeping him focused on his academic journey.

Little is extremely grateful to Jonathan Christian-Hodges, NETC PBI Project Director, for sharing advice and encouraging words. He considers Christian-Hodges to be his mentor. His experience with the Trumpet Program has shown him firsthand why it is important to connect with others outside of the classroom setting.

Before enrolling at NETC, Little gained experience working in manufacturing. His supervisor encouraged him to get his degree, so he would not be limited in his career options.

Little recognized hands-on experience, coupled with a degree, would better position him to make the amount of money he desires in the future. His advice to others thinking about enrolling at NETC is, "Don't limit yourself, put in the work."
