SOUTH HOLLAND, IL–South Suburban College student Terry Harris was sworn in for his first term as the new Student Trustee at the college’s April meeting of the Board of Trustees, and welcomed to his new post by Chairman Frank Zuccarelli.
“I’m very excited about this opportunity to serve on the SSC Board of Trustees,” said Harris. “I hope to help increase student enrollment and to be a great representative for the students of South Suburban College.”
Harris is a Dolton resident and Thornridge High School alumnus. He’s the former president of Phi Theta Kappa at the college, and was also a member of the SSC Symphonic Band. He plans to transfer to Governors State University and major in Psychology and Speech Pathology upon his graduation from SSC next year.
Former Student Trustee Rebecca Garcia was also recognized at the meeting and was presented with a Service Award from Chairman Zuccarelli.
“It has been a long time since we swore in a Student Trustee, and that is because Rebecca has done such an outstanding job in this role for three years,” said Zuccarelli. “She will be missed, but it is a pleasure to call her our colleague and we expect she will continue to do great things for SSC in her full-time position.”
