SGA President – 2012-13, James Hopkins
James Hopkins was born in Davie County and moved shortly thereafter to Salisbury, NC. He is a 2010 honor graduate of West Rowan High School. While there, he served as an office assistant both his junior and senior years.
Mr. Hopkins takes pride in mentoring and serving middle and high school youth through the “communities in schools program”. While a student at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, he has worked in the RCCC bookstore. This experience allowed him to engage new students as well as faculty. Mr. Hopkins has served on the RCCC- Student Government Association Executive Board as the 2011-2012 Public Information Officer. In this role, he was able to listen to what students want and relay that message to other SGA Officers, Advisors and Administration.
Mr. Hopkins’ goal is to graduate from RCCC in May of 2013 with Associate in Arts Degrees in Pre-Psychology and Pre-Middle Grades. In Preparation to serve as SGA President, he was nominated by the SGA Advisor and selected to participate in the North Carolina Community College System Student Leadership Development Program (SLDP) with plans to graduate from the program in March of 2013.
As SGA President, his focus for the 2012-2013 academic year will be encouraging the students to get involved in campus activities as well as in service learning initiatives.

There is more to life than books and classes at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College. What goes on outside the classroom is also very important. The school offers a wide variety of social and cultural opportunities which, as well as being enjoyable, also expand the learning experience. Students are encouraged to plan their own activities and programs through the Student Government Association and may use any of our excellent facilities for assembly, theatre, club meetings, relaxation, and recreation.
The constitution and the activities of the SGA are subject to the approval of the administration of the college.
