SGA President 2023–2024

Fernando Alcaide Luevanos

Fernando Alcaide Luevanos graduated from Central Cabarrus High School in Spring 2016 as the first high school graduate on his father’s side of the family. Now a proud first-generation college student, he is slated to graduate from Rowan-Cabarrus with an associate degree in May of 2024 and plans to transfer to UNCC to obtain a bachelor’s degree. His career goal is to become a high school math teacher. While many students do not enjoy math, Luevanos has excelled in the subject and considers it a universal language.

While at Rowan-Cabarrus, Luevanos has been selected to serve as a Student Ambassador, was a Student Excellence Award finalist, and held a position as an Academic Senator in the Student Government Association prior to his election as President.

For Luevanos, attending Rowan-Cabarrus means more than just going to class. His experiences have taught him to push himself outside his comfort zone. He knows that life is not easy, and often you must fail before you overcome. He chose to pursue the opportunities provided by Student Life and Leadership to enjoy all that the college had to offer, including making new friends, connecting with faculty and staff, and learning how to be an effective leader.

As Student Government Association (SGA) President, Luevanos hopes to advocate for his fellow students by connecting them with the resources they need to achieve their goals and give back to their communities. He is passionate about helping others find belonging at school and within the community. As a non-traditional student, he uses his bilingual skills to help others overcome challenges due to language barriers. He hopes to continue cultivating the community provided by Student Life and educating students about the mental health resources available to them at Rowan-Cabarrus.

“Rowan-Cabarrus has given me a community to support me on this journey and the opportunity to advocate for others,” Luevanos said. “I’m excited to see what the year will hold!”

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, theater, club meetings, relaxation, and recreation.

The constitution and the activities of the SGA are subject to the approval of the administration of the college.
