Edison State College Collier Campus Student Government Association (SGA) was recently recognized with four awards during the Florida Model Legislature (FML) Conference in Tallahassee.
Students from colleges and universities around the state attended. The Collier Campus SGA members won four awards during the conference: the Most Distinguished Delegation Award for outstanding performance as a team; the Honorable Senator Award to Myrline Charelus; the Distinguished Senator Award to Jacob Winge; and the Excellence in Participation Award to the Collier SGA.
The conference gave students the opportunity to play the roles of Senator, Representative, Lobbyist or Press Corp. in an environment similar to actual state legislature. Students wrote, debated and voted on legislation while representing their constituents.
