February 28, 2017

David Vetor  

David Vetor, president of the Student Government Association at St. Louis Community College-Florissant Valley, has been chosen as the winner of the Governor's Council on Disability's 2016 Youth Leadership Award.

The Youth Leadership Award is a program to recognize an outstanding Missouri young adult age 16-26 with a disability who has demonstrated exemplary leadership by making a difference in their community.

To be considered for the award, the individual must be engaged in activities that improve the quality of life of people with disabilities in Missouri or demonstrate social activism that improves their community in Missouri.

Vetor is very passionate about students with disabilities having the access they need to ensure academic and social success on campus. He takes great pride in his academic excellence and encourages others to use the support services available to them.

As a representative of the deaf community, Vetor volunteers with the Deaf Communication Studies program. He created a community college recruitment video and has acted in college theater productions. His most recent focus is working to make the college emergency alert system more accessible.

Vetor will receive the award at the Power Up Conference April 4 in Columbia, Mo.
