I saw the opportunity to develop into the leader I was called to be here at Claflin.
Dominique W. Riggins is a junior History major at Claflin University, hailing from Albany, Georgia. His years at Claflin University have been some of the most productive and transformative years for any college student. While at Claflin, Mr. Riggins has previously served as Sophomore Class President and is currently serving his term as the 58th President of the Student Government Association.
Mr. Riggins successfully ran his campaign on the power of being R.E.A.L.: RECLAIMING, EXCELLENCE, ACHIEVEMENTS, AND LEGACIES. Ultimately, his goal as SGA President is to improve the collegiate experience at the university.
Above all, he is a student first. Dominique is a member of the conscientious Alice Carson Tisdale Honors College, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, and has earned numerous academic honors and awards. Dominique lives by the words "If not me, then who?" a phrase that that effectively describes a daily motivation to achieve greatness.
