I think I’m equally repulsed at the idea of a 40 year old student body president.

More common than you'd think in community colleges. I had a friend in her late 30s who was a nurse and had gone back to school to learn some project management skills. She became student body president and did an outstanding job. Older student relate better to the administration and community members and are more inclined to be critical thinkers and less likely to be pushed around by administrators.

In California, as in other states, two year community and junior colleges such as Riverside Community College have a lot of mature students well beyond the traditional college age. For that matter, they also tend to have a lot of immature students just out of high school. Teaching in that environment can be a wild experience.
