Transcript SERVANT LEADER By Moniqua Sexton Beyond being president of the Student Government Association in 2010-2011, Prince Wilson aspires to have a successful and peaceful family, as well as remain involved with the community and his church. "My family and my faith enabled me to reach so far," Wilson said. "I know that I need to have the continued support of my family and my God to reach greater heights that are ahead of me." Wilson does outreach work for his church's brothers and sisters in the Houston area. What he does for his church and his community gives Wilson peace, which for him is more important that money or fame. "God placed you in this world with a purpose, not just to live alone for you," he said. So that's why I know that it's important to help others who are struggling along with you." Being SGA president provided such an opportunity for Wilson. Though he never planned to be president of SGA, the role helped him grow not only professionally and socially, but personally as well. "My involvement in SGA was pretty much an accident because I was helping Kenneth (Fomunung) to run his campaign and the vice president had to step down due to personal reasons. But I was involved in the campus before in several capacities. "I always wanted to make a positive impact, but I never wanted to be the student body president. What can I say?" he said. "God always has a different plan for me." He said his biggest accomplishment isn't his at all but stems from his senators, but he admits he is most proud of the fact that he serve as an advocate for students. "Each day that I spend in our office we were able to successfully advocate for our students, and it's not my biggest accomplishment," Wilson said. "But it's our accomplishment because of our team effort. " As President, Wilson was able to keep tuition and fees affordable; he created a program to help raise money for scholarships for students; worked with housing to improve residential life; made plans for renovations to the University Center; help make plans to keep the campus safe; and worked to better accommodate students when it comes to parking. Being president of SGA put Wilson in a position to be able to have an influential impact on the life of his current and future Cougars. However, Wilson maintains that everyone can do his or her part. "You don't need a title to make a difference," said Wilson. After college, Wilson plans to work in an accounting firm as a managing director, although his current major is biology. Wherever he goes, community, family and faith will always be his top priorities. Before he leaves, he would like to extend some words to the current president and for others to follow. "Be a servant leader and don't let the title consume you, but lead others to success." Photo by Clarissa Arispe [156] ;nside the Pride.
