Cynthia (Cindy) Drago was appointed by former Governor Charlie Crist to the Seminole State College District Board of Trustees for a term beginning July 31, 2009, and ending May 31, 2013. In 2010, she was elected to the Oviedo City Council.
Cindy brings a background in law enforcement, after serving 23 years with the Fort Lauderdale Police Department. During her career there, she held progressive levels of responsibility dealing with the training of police officers, members of the community and college students. She served as the Florida Department of Law Enforcement representative for the department and managed the College Internship Program.
Cindy and her husband, Chuck, retired from the Fort Lauderdale Police Department in 2004 and relocated to Oviedo, where Chuck became Oviedo's police chief. Cindy immediately became involved in the community. She serves on several boards for nonprofit organizations, such as CBC (Community Based Care of Central Florida), Seminole Community Alliance, Oviedo Woman's Club, Helpful Hands, Inc., and the Tri-County League of Cities.
"I strongly believe in the mission and vision of Seminole State and feel honored to be a part of its future," Cindy says. "After serving the law enforcement community for 23 years, it is especially exciting to be part of the new Center for Public Safety, which will benefit all our citizens. It further proves that, as a community, we can work collaboratively to inspire lifelong learning for all students."
Cindy is a proud mother of three children and grandmother of two grandsons. The Drago family are members of the Most Precious Blood Catholic Church in Oviedo.
