President’s Welcome

Kay Mahoney

Welcome to the home of the Student Government Association at Central Piedmont,

My name is Kay Mahoney, and I have the honor to serve as President of SGA. Some things to know about me are: I am a Advertising and Graphic Design student expecting my AS this upcoming spring, this is my second year partaking in Student Government at Central Piedmont, and I am a local of Huntersville, North Carolina. 

As President, one of my goals is to make college information and resources as accessible as possible to my fellow students. That said, I invite you to explore this page to learn more about SGA. On this page, you can find more information about SGA as an organization, our current members, how to contact us, and what steps to take if you are interested in joining.

Thank you for your interest in in the Student Government Association at Central Piedmont,

Kay Mahoney
