#InspiringExcellence – Student Wins State Leadership Award

The Missouri Community College Association (MCCA) Student Leadership Award is presented annually to an exceptional student leader from each community college campus.

East Central College is proud to announce Michail Ratcliff is the 2018 recipient!

“Michail uses charismatic leadership to mobilize students,” said Campus Life and Leadership Coordinator Courtney Henrichsen. “Michail is charming, humorous and personable – which has aided his recruitment efforts.”

The Washington native has been actively involved with the Student Government Association (SGA) during his time at East Central College.

“During his time as Public Relations Officer, Michail successfully expanded SGA’s social media presence and created successful marketing materials to promote SGA, the SGA food pantry and clothing closet and helped other clubs create their own advertisements.”

He went on to serve as president for the organization – focusing on improving SGA bylaws, senator recruitment and advocating for new clubs.

“Michail has worked diligently to reach out to other student organizations and provide any support that SGA can,” said Henrichsen. “He has led with the intention of building the confidence of SGA and other ECC student organizations and has been remarkably successful in his efforts.”
