On Saturday, March 2nd, student leaders came together for the 7th Annual Student Leadership Celebration in the Champlain Room. The event began with a performance from Purposeful Dissonance, Champlain’s a capella group followed by dinner. Throughout the night, student leaders were recognized for their achievements and continuous contributions to the college and its student body.

The keynote speaker was Don Stevens, Class of 1991 and the Chief of the Nulhegan Band of the Coosuk Abenaki Nation. In his speech, he told the student leaders to always fight for what they believe in. “You can achieve a tremendous amount if you’re on the right path,” said Stevens. “I’m up here today because of what I wanted to do for my people—you can do the same, and you will do the same.”

Champlain's Student Government Association organized and hosted the event.

“Student leaders really define the campus,” President Don Laackman remarked of the event. “It’s their leadership that tells us who we really are, and I appreciate the SGA for recognizing what these student leaders do for Champlain.”
