A Current Member Says...
I have really enjoyed my time with SGA. The main reason I love being a member of SGA is that I can serve the student body here at Luther Rice. It has been a blessing for me to take part in all of the wonderful things that we have accomplished including; a blanket drive for Christmas, the Thanksgiving drive and the Veteran’s day luncheon. The team that we have is wonderful and we work really well together. I would encourage anyone to join and make a difference at Luther Rice.
