Following the successful conclusion of current President - Sylvia Ibrahim's - term, Sheridan Student Union's hiring committee set out in search of a new President to lead the organization.  

This hiring committee was assembled by SSU’s Human Resources Manager and was comprised of voting members of the incoming and outgoing SSU Board, along with Associate Dean Matthew Rempel.  That committee is now happy to announce that Enrique Ponce will assume the role of Sheridan Student Union President as of May 1, 2017.

As President, Ponce will provide oversight and leadership to approximately 250 full and part-time staff, oversee an operational budget of over $4.6 million, and serve over 22,000 Sheridan students.

Enrique Ponce is very familiar with the SSU, having served the organization as Executive Vice-President (EVP) for HMC for the past two years. In addition to his role as EVP, Enrique has been very active on campus as the former Sergeant-at-Arms for Sheridan Toastmasters, and the President and Co-Founder of the Smash Stress Club at HMC. 

Enrique is a graduate of Sheridan College’s Business Administration – Marketing Program, and is currently pursuing studies in Sheridan’s Bachelor of Business Administration – Marketing Management Program.

I’ve had the pleasure of working closely with Enrique for 2 years now and I am confident that he will do a tremendous job! He has a great understanding of how the SSU operates and his vision for the future puts the students first! He is also our first HMC president which is very exciting given the many upcoming & exciting changes with the campus.
— Sylvia Ibrahim

As incoming President, Enrique looks forward to the role, saying, 

The last 2 years I’ve had the chance to make a positive impact on the lives of students within the HMC community as EVP for the SSU, and now I’m really looking forward to bringing the knowledge and experiences I’ve gained into this new role to continue making positive changes for the whole student body with new, exciting initiatives and projects.

Enrique is the first-ever Hazel McCallion Campus (HMC) student to be hired as the President of Sheridan Student Union and will commence his period of authority on May 1, 2017.  We are lucky to have Enrique continue at the SSU and develop into his role as President.
