SGA helps Puerto Rico

On Sunday, October 8th, Eastside Campus’ Student Government Association (SGA) and other clubs moved thousands of pounds of food and household supplies and packed them onto trucks to be delivered to the victims of Hurricane Maria to relieve suffering inflicted on Puerto Rico. As a state-wide initiative, this Passaic County effort was led by City Council Vice President Luis Velez and the organization, Puerto Rico United. At Eastside Campus, Toni Jackson, advisor for the School of Government and Public Administration SGA, enlisted the help of the Student Government Association, the National Honor Society, the ASPIRA Club and the JROTC. Students from the clubs volunteered for, and put in a full day’s work! Materials were donated from many sources, including churches, businesses and individuals.


 

Hispanic Heritage Month


 

The Student Government Association of the School of Government and Public Administration celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month by inviting educator and historian, Jose E. Velazquez Luyanda to speak to the student body. Mr. Luyanda spoke about the rich and diverse cultures that Latin America is comprised of and encouraged the students to become more united by not looking at their differences, but focusing on their similarities. He ended his visit by giving a book he wrote, entitled “The Puerto Rican Movement, Voices from the Diaspora”, to the library. In addition to Mr. Luyanda’ speech, the audience was entertained by the Dominican Independence Day outfits designed by members of Aspira, an organization created to enrich the lives of the Latino youth, which is located at Eastside High School. The program ended with a dedication to the people of Puerto Rico and Mexico.

Earth Day Cleanup

Earth Day

Students from the Student Government Association of the School of Government and Public Administration (GOPA) at Eastside participated in the 4th Annual Earth Day activities conducted by the Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park. Before embarking on a clean-up of the park, the students heard a brief overview of the history of Paterson with regard to the Great Falls and the significance of Paterson as one of the first industrial cities in the United States. The event gave the students a chance to reflect upon the importance of keeping the environment clean and enhanced their knowledge of the environment with a Science Expo which included presentations by the Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission, The Great Swamp Watershed, Eagle Creek Renewable Energy, and a host of other schools and agencies.
