WPCC’s 2022-2023 SGA Council
The WPCC Student Government Association (SGA) works hard on behalf all students, and together with campus clubs and organizations, create a vibrant student life experience. The purpose of the SGA is to provide the means whereby members of the student body may express concerns or present suggestions regarding the College, and to advance the best interests of the student body.
Each year, a new executive council is elected to conduct the day-to-day operations and serve as the face of the SGA. We officially introduce you to the 2022-2023 WPCC SGA council.
Skyler Durham, President
Skyler will be graduating in May with two degrees, Associate in Arts and Associate in Applied Science in Paralegal Technology. Upon graduation, he plans to transfer to a four-year university for a bachelor’s degree in Political Science, with plans for law school and aspirations of practicing corporate litigation.

Jesus Socop Tiguila, Parliamentarian/PIO
Jesus is in his first year as an Associate in Science major at WPCC. Through his position on the SGA, he seeks to motivate and inspire others with a special focus on the mental health and well-being of our students. He appreciates the opportunity to represent students and contribute to the culture of inclusion by bringing different perspectives to the table. “Our differences, backgrounds, and culture help us create new goals on campus. Acknowledgement is key to making a better environment for all our students.”
