For the 2021-22 school year, @Cochise College welcomes back a new crew of Student Government Association officers at both the Douglas and Sierra Vista campuses.

The academic organization aims to act as an intermediary between students, other academic organizations and the college administration. It has been active at Cochise College for more than 52 years.

SGA is composed of four to five student officers per campus, each serving various leadership roles from administrative to event coordinating. There is real family involved; Samantha and Stephanie Amaya are twins.

The Herald/Review sat down with the student officers from both campuses to dive into their roles, how they want to help their communities, academic pursuits and plans after graduation.
