NICEVILLE This year's Northwest Florida State College Student Government Association is the largest in more than five years.



Twenty-seven students stepped forward to be leaders; it's almost twice as many as in a typical year.



The larger the SGA indicates an overall increase in student activity, according to Student Life Director Aimee Watts.
