The Missouri Community College Association (MCCA) Student Leadership Award is presented annually to an exceptional student leader from each community college campus.
In 2017, Aiden Worley was honored with the award at East Central College. The announcement wasn’t a surprise to Student Activities Coordinator Courtney Henrichsen.
“Aiden is a devoted and inspiring student leader on campus,” she said. “Aiden’s commitment to serving his community and campus is exemplified through his personable and enthusiastic leadership style.”
Aiden served as the Student Government Association Treasurer in Spring 2016 before being voted in as SGA President for the 2016-2017 academic year. As President, Aiden has lead the Student Senate to collaborate with other campus organizations to provide enjoyable social activities for students, assisted local non-profits with donation drives and clean-up efforts, organized campus-wide special topic forums on Campus Safety and Higher Education Funding and has planned several events to make campus administrators more accessible to students.
“Aiden’s leadership has truly fostered a culture of student engagement with an emphasis on active citizenry and cultivated students’ appreciation of democratic values and processes at East Central College,” said ECC President Dr. Jon Bauer.
Aiden Worley is a business major at East Central College and plans to transfer to the University of Missouri – St. Louis to complete his bachelor’s degree.
