Raby Cefalo, a student in the Environmental Horticultural Program, was the recipient of the Student Government Leadership Award given to a student government member that best exemplifies the role that student government can play within a college campus.
She put in extensive hours developing publicity, attended countless meetings, coordinated events and overall immersed herself into the NSCC population. She was a constant contributor with her processing of the Student Government Association (SGA) Scholarship selection, assisting with MASSPIRG and giving strong voice in the SGA’s constitutional review process. She was the driving force in organizing a textbook swap, saving her fellow students thousands of dollars.
In addition, earlier this year Raby Cefalo was named a recipient of the National Newman Civic Fellow Award, presented to student leaders who have taken action in pursuit of long-term social change, and who engage and inspire others in their communities. Students are nominated by their institution’s president.
