A recent GoLocalWorcester.com article calls Neema Hakim ’14, a Worcester native with a double major in philosophy and political science, a “natural born leader and organizer” for his efforts in founding the Worcester Student Government Association. When the current Holy Cross Student Government Association co-president began in his position, he acted on the need to gather representatives from Worcester colleges together to serve as a united voice for Worcester students, to share ideas with one another, and to support community efforts.
“It has taken a lot of time and effort by the students from the various colleges, but Worcester now has a united student front and that is something we are very proud of,” said Hakim. “Now it’s time to get to work.”
The newly founded Worcester Student Government Association held an initial meeting to discuss the organization’s mission and recently signed a memorandum of understanding with the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce.
