Office of Student Life celebrates 2013-14 successes

The Student Nurses Association at the Altamonte Springs Campus was one of six student organizations selected as a Club of the Year for 2013-14 at the Office of Student Life's awards celebration on April 17.

The Office of Student Life at Seminole State College of Florida recognized its achievements at its 2013-14 End of Year Awards Celebration on Thursday, April 17, at the Embassy Suites in Altamonte Springs.

More than 150 students, faculty and staff gathered for the semi-formal event, which included a live band, a buffet dinner and dancing. Student Government Association (SGA) Presidents Nicole Brown-Goldman (Sanford/Lake Mary Campus) and Ansha Roberts (Altamonte Springs Campus) served as emcees for the banquet, and Seminole State President Dr. E. Ann McGee kicked off the festivities with a welcome.

"Being involved in student activities saved my life as a student," McGee said. "It taught me lessons that I use today. My hope for each of you is that you've learned lessons to take forward with you."

During the awards ceremony, more than 100 students, representing 20 clubs and organizations at Seminole State, were honored for their contributions throughout the year. Club advisors nominated these students based on their involvement in community service, campus activities and leadership training.

SGA at each campus selected the recipients for Club of the Year based on participation in Council of Presidents meetings, community service and student activities, and overall commitment to Student Life and its constitution.

The recipients of these awards were:

  • Student Nurses Association – Altamonte Springs Campus
  • Phi Beta Lambda – Heathrow Campus
  • African American Cultural Forum – Oviedo Campus
  • Non-Traditional Student Club, Film Club and Student Accounting Society – Sanford/Lake Mary Campus

Student Life also celebrated these accomplishments for 2013-14:

  • SGA Public Relations Chair Gabriella Nicholas won a Jack Kent Cook Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship, becoming Seminole State's eighth JKC scholar.
  • Leslie Cook, coordinator of Student Life at the Heathrow Campus, was named SGA Advisor of the Year for District II at the Florida College System Student Government Association (FCCSGA) conference in Tallahassee.
  • Colleen Lewis, Sanford/Lake Mary Campus SGA vice president, was named Rookie Student of Year for District II at the FCCSGA conference.
  • Voter turnout in the SGA Election for 2014-15 increased by more than 1,000 percent from the previous year.

"Thank you for making the campus what it is," said Gerald Jones, director of Student Life, in his closing remarks. "You bring life to campus, and we are so proud of you."

The Office of Student Life at Seminole State oversees more than 30 student clubs and organizations, provides free student activities and entertainment, and hosts leadership retreats for students at each of the College's four campuses. For more information, please visit the Student Life website.
