Meet Your 2021
Samantha Jemison has been an engaged, and energetic student during her four years at Niagara College. Graduating from the Mechanical Engineering program this April, she will be leaving quite the legacy in her wake. She has acted as Director of Technology Studies for NCSAC for two years, and additionally, she has served as Vice President and Board Chair, both positions she was elected to from the NCSAC Board of Directors at the time.
Outside of NCSAC, Sam is a student pilot, a volunteer Medical First Responder with St. John Ambulance, and a volunteer student advisory board member for Student Health 101. She has earned the Award of Excellence in Woman in Trades and Technology Award, was named Niagara College Student of the Month for March 2019, and earned her certificate of leadership from the LEAD program in 2019 as well, from her role as a sustainability ambassador. She has also worked in both the NC mechanical labs, and in the Welland Research Centre (WAMIC), both roles that helped her learn more about Niagara College, its partners, and practices. Sam has also spent a fair share of her time on posters and advertisements for the school, as well as in media releases for WAMIC, both of which act as another display of her intensive involvements.
In her free time, Sam enjoys kayaking, playing video games, acting for film and television, creative writing, and most recently, building and tinkering in her yard and home shop.
After her tireless commitment to Niagara College during these past years, Sam is ready to step into the role of NCSAC President. Having been so heavily engaged in the Niagara College community as well as her own has helped her understand the struggles students face, and the different ways to overcome them. More, she has spent countless hours learning board polices, helping guide the NCSAC organizations strategic direction, advocating on behalf of the entire student body, and engaging with students during NC events; all of which have given her an in-depth understanding of the role of President, and the challenges it will bring.
