Shippensburg Gerontological Organization
The SGO is a volunteer club that serves older adults in the Shippensburg Community.
Current SGO Officers
President: Paige Bankhead-Lewis, Junior in the Social Work Department with a Gerontology minor
"I became interested in SGO because I am passionate about the older adult population. By joining SGO, I can become more knowledgeable about the population as well as experience more hands-on volunteer opportunities. When I graduate, I plan on starting a career with the elderly population and pursue my dreams of establishing my own nursing home. It is always a pleasure giving back to the community and making a difference."
Vice President: Brittany Morgan, Senior in the Psychology Department with a Gerontology minor
"I joined SGO because I plan to work as an Activities Director in a nursing home after college. I like to spend time with older adults in my free time and you can always learn something new from talking with them.
Secretary: Pricylla Derosier, Senior in the Social Work Department
"The reason why I became interested in SGO is because my friend Paige (the president of SGO) needed some students to join the club and also run for officer positions. I thought it would be great to help start up a gerontology club again, and learn more about the gerontology community. I like to be involved with school groups and also volunteer at different places so I can gain more knowledge and experience about the community."
Treasurer: Christianna Rudy, Sophomore Social Work major with a Gerontology minor
"I joined the SGO because I wanted to gain more experience working with older adults! I also thought that it would be a great adventure to help start up a organization that would really strive to make a difference!"
