December 2011 - Group Spotlight - Wilkes Community College SGA-Ashe Campus
The Ashe Campus of Wilkes Community College brings students down the mountain each year to work at MerleFest on the Wilkes Campus. The Ashe Campus Student Government Association is one of those groups. They run a drink booth at the festival.
“MerleFest is a great way for the Ashe Campus SGA to get involved on the main campus. They enjoy interacting with faculty, staff and students from the main campus,” says club advisor, Heather Willard.
The group uses the funds they earn from the festival toward SGA or student activities. Last year they used the money earned from the previous MerleFest to pay for a trip to the N4CSGA Spring Conference (North Carolina Comprehensive Community College Student Government Association Spring Conference).
