Presidential Report: Oct. 15, 2012
This past week was a busy one for our Trustees. On Monday, Oct. 8, Scott Howat represented us in Orlando at the inaugural meeting for Trustee Chairs, organized by Chancellor Randy Hanna. Scott was a presenter at the conference and made us all proud. Scott, would you like to comment on the meeting and on the State Board meeting held the next day?
On Wednesday through Saturday, Alex Setzer represented the Board at the annual Leadership Congress of the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) in Boston. I would like to ask Alex to comment on the meeting and also our time with Lalita Booth, our first Jack Kent Cooke Scholar. Lalita recently completed a double master's degree at Harvard and is working for Year Up.
And many thanks to Scott Howat, Wendy Brandon and Alex Setzer, who will be representing us at the statewide Florida College System Trustee meeting on Nov. 1 at Innisbrook.
Congratulations to Mary Wolff, a recent Seminole State A.A. graduate, whose work, “A Case of Her,” was selected from 800 entries and will be published in Phi Theta Kappa's magazine, Nota Bene.
Congratulations to Dr. Monica Butler, who has been selected by the State Board of Education and the Board of Governors as one of the faculty representatives who will be recommending the core courses for the legislatively mandated revision to the General Education requirements in Florida. Dr. Butler will be representing faculty statewide in the History and Humanities areas. The reduction of the general education core from 36 hours to 30 hours is scheduled for implementation in 2014-2015. Many thanks to Dr. Butler for her willingness to assume a leadership role in this effort!
Seminole State held our annual Convocation on Tuesday, Sept. 25. Many thanks to Cindy Drago and Alex Setzer for representing the Board at this collegewide event. The College celebrated a year of continued enrollment growth and student success, recognized long-term employees and announced the Pathfinder Awards funded by the Foundation. Over the course of the day, 51 workshops were conducted by Seminole State faculty and staff on a variety of topics. This appeared to be our most successful Convocation yet because of these workshops, and we look forward to offering even more next year.
