Many thanks to Mrs. Cindy Drago for traveling to San Francisco as the Board’s representative to the Association of Community College Trustees Annual Congress. I am going to ask Cindy to comment on what she learned; but first, this was also the meeting where we congratulated Dede Schaffner on her selection as the recipient of the Southern States Regional M. Dale Ensign Trustee Leadership Award. While Dede did not receive the national award, she certainly made us all proud. Cindy, would you like to comment on the meeting?
Mrs. Drago has been asked to write an article for the ACCT Journal from the vantage point of being a new Trustee at her first national meeting. This is a great opportunity for her and for Seminole State College!
Seminole State’s Criminal Justice program will be recognized at the October FDLE Commission meeting for having a perfect audit. Special thanks go to thank Department Chair Billy Lee, Carol Mikolajek, Julie Knott, Alan Kraft and Gus Beckstrom for their efforts.
Our Interior Design program won First Place in the Saks Fifth Avenue annual Key to Fine Dining event last Thursday with their “Mad Hatter’s Tea Party” submission. Our participation was sponsored by one of the Presidents’ Club members with the proceeds donated to the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. Congratulations to our students and alumni who took part in this event!
Many thanks go to Dr. Michael Hoover for conducting another successful Constitution Day celebration.
