SGA Spotlight: James KittingerBy Alex • Apr 23rd, 2009 • Category: Student Life
Treasurer James Kittinger is a Dublin resident, born and raised here in Southwest Virginia. Majoring in education, he will graduate with honors this semester and will attend Radford University in the fall. Here at NRCC James takes his duties seriously, working in Academic Assistance as well as participating in the SGA and in Phi Theta Kappa.
His focus in the SGA has been on student involvement, organizing events and going out among students to learn what concerns them most. He has completed one project, bringing students together for the St. Patrick’s Day costume party, and will finish another after his karaoke event on May 8th. Also he has given speeches to classes regarding academic assistance and tutoring. As treasurer James handles SGA finances, determining where money is allotted for activities and projects. He tracks their accounts and handles purchase orders for SGA events.
James enjoys attending NRCC, especially the ease with which students receive individual attention. As he says, at NRCC a student is “not just a number, but actually a person.” He believes the campus is populated by good people, with plenty of good friends around.
According to James the SGA has undergone positive changes of late. He believes they have come together in a way that he has never seen before. He says of the SGA, “This group has gotten together and done more than any previous SGA I have been in.”
Alex is in his first year at NRCC. He recently moved to the area from Florida where he studied music at Florida Atlantic University from 2004 to 2006. Also, Alex has been working as a professional musician in the Miami and Fort Lauderdale areas for nearly eight years. He has taught band and jazz music in the Florida school system, as well as teaching woodwinds (Sax, Clarinet, and Flute) privately for many years.
