Ilagan reelected Wisconsin Student Government president
For the City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS –Ann Ilagan, of Plover, was elected to a second term as Wisconsin Student Government (WSG) president and will continue as president in the 2020–21 academic year, while enrolling part-time at Mid-State.
WSG consists of representatives for the 16 technical college districts in the Wisconsin Technical College System. Each participating college selects a governor from among its students, and this group of governors vote at the last meeting of the academic year to elect its president for the upcoming year, choosing from the candidates who have decided to run for the position.
“It’s an incredible honor to be reelected as the student representative of the 16 technical colleges in Wisconsin,” said Ilagan. “I’ve been so impressed by the innovation I’ve seen at the state level to ensure technical college students in Wisconsin have access to the education they need to excel in life and give back to their communities.
“It’s a privilege to be a part of that, and I’m looking forward to continuing the significant work of representing student interests statewide.”
“It is rare that the WSG has the benefit of a two-term president, and it speaks to the confidence governors of the other colleges in the WTCS have in Ann’s ability to lead,” said Jon Steele, advisor to Mid-State’s WSG representatives. “Ann consistently champions the missions of Mid-State and the WTCS, and her acquired knowledge this year combined with her continuity in the role will not only benefit the WSG but also the collective student voice among the state’s technical colleges.”
Ilagan initially enrolled in Mid-State’s Business Management program to give her burgeoning photography business structure and greater growth potential. She will complete her business management associate degree this May to add to the Marketing associate degree she earned from Mid-State last spring. Next year’s plan includes starting work on her marketing bachelor’s degree, which she anticipates completing in just two semesters, thanks to a transfer agreement between Mid-State and UW-Stevens Point.
