Applications will be reviewed by a Career Service Review Committee of the Career Service Employees Council (CSEC), and the final selection will be made by members of the Foundation Board of Directors.
Pathfinder Award Nominations
Nominations are now being accepted for our College's 2012 Pathfinder Awards. A $2,000 Pathfinder Award is given annually to recognize one Seminole State employee, and a $2,000 Pathfinder Award is given annually to one Seminole State department that has demonstrated exemplary service to our College over the last year or so. The individual Pathfinder recipient will receive a $2,000 cash award to spend as he or she pleases. Any full-time faculty/staff member employed more than one year may be nominated for this award. The $2,000 awarded to the department receiving the Pathfinder Award may be spent on department equipment or a department activity based upon parameters to be determined by the Foundation for Seminole State, which is providing the funds for this award. To nominate an individual or a department for these Pathfinder Awards, please submit the name of the individual or department, together with the reasons for the nomination (in less than 500 words), to Yolanda Williams via email by Friday, Sept. 7. The 2012 Pathfinder Awards Selection Committee will then meet to select the individual and department to be honored in a surprise announcement during the Collegewide Convocation celebration on Sept. 25.
