SAMHC is here for students

October 5, 2017

Medicine Hat College students have an experienced team ready to work for them and are encouraged to ask questions, access support and get involved with the Students’ Association Medicine Hat College (SAMHC). All three SAMHC executives have returned to office for a second term with renewed energy and ideas to serve students.

Beth Lewis, Dalton Ehry, and Melissa Benson fill the roles of president, vice president external, and vice president internal respectively and work together to ensure student voices are heard and needs are addressed.

Advocating on behalf of students to college administration and all levels of government, supporting mental health initiatives, and hosting engaging awareness weeks are just a few areas of focus for the SAMHC executive.

"It is critical that students at MHC not only take advantage of the various supports and opportunities that the SA has available, but also voice their opinions and perspectives to their council representatives and executives," says Lewis. "We need to hear what they have to say so we can make positive changes on campus and enhance their educational experience.”

In addition to the executive elections that occur each spring, students also have the opportunity to vote for their council representatives in the fall. Seven council positions were filled last month that welcomed Adriana Todaro, Skyler McNiven-Beswick, Lorene Entz, Jennee Joujan, Devin Simon, Michelle MacKinnon, and Carly Robley to the SAMHC team. These council members will work with the executive and represent the SA on various committees throughout the year. There are also several permanent staff members in the office to handle administration, communications, and health and wellness initiatives.
