Holly Sheridan

Major:  Business Management - Health Care Option

Future Speakers of America

Student Leadership Academy
Presidential Ambassador

I have two adult children. My daughter is graduating this spring with her middle school education degree. My son is in the United States Navy. I have a dog, cat and a horse. I am a long-time Canton resident. I have been a student since 2012, and I presently work as a student worker and Presidential Ambassador. I also work for Aspen Dental.

The goals I would like to achieve would be to get more students engaged in College social activities during their journey to graduation. I would like to accomplish a program that meets the students’ interests with their major and help them to see the goal all the while achieving their graduation cap and diploma.

Vice President for the Student Government Association (2013-2014)
My main focus would be a stronger presence with the students and throughout campus on all levels. I would also like to see the SGA provide additional information on programs, activities, etc., so students have more of a “college campus” experience in hopes that it will endear them to their alma mater. As the College grows, have the student body speak, treat and respect Stark State College as a college rather than a "commuter college."  

Goals for the coming year include more student events, a student union and a more typical school newspaper. 



Cindy Bruce

Major:  Paralegal Studies

Senator for the Student Government Association
Student Connection club member
Member of student council throughout high school
Ladies Helping Social Club member (2005-2008)

I lost my job because my company (ABSC – Meggitt) moved many jobs to Kentucky and Mexico. I was employed as a secretary/shipping coordinator at the company for more than 14 years. This led me to become a student at Stark State and to obtain more skills. My son also attends Stark State. I am a full-time student in Paralegal Studies. I have been on the Dean’s List and am very proud of this!

The goals that I would like achieve while holding this position include more college-related student activities and interaction between the Student Government and students. I would like to be a voice for both women and African American students here at Stark State. It is my desire to help create a student union/recreation center where students can meet new people and have wonderful, life-enhancing experiences here at the college.

I am the older of two children and have a wonderful family to support me in my college career. I work for McDonald’s of Massillon, LLC.
