About 3,000 degrees and certificates will be awarded this term by Seminole State College of Florida, according to the College’s Department of Enrollment Services.
Students will cross the stage for Collegewide Commencement on Sunday, May 4, in the CFE Arena at the University of Central Florida. The ceremony will begin at 2 p.m.
For the first time, there will be graduates from all five of the College’s four-year programs. A total of 78 students have earned bachelor’s degrees this spring, including the first graduates from the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Engineering Technology Program. Seminole State has offered five bachelor’s degrees since January 2012.
Dr. Walt Griffin, superintendent of Seminole County Public Schools (SCPS), will be the guest speaker.
Prior to being selected as superintendent, Griffin served as the executive director of Seminole County High Schools. He was selected as "Florida Principal of the Year" in 2003 and is a two-time Florida Department of Education “Turnaround Principal,” raising the rankings of Millennium Middle School and Seminole High School by two letter grades.
SCPS is consistently ranked among the top school districts in Florida. Nearly 40 percent of SCPS graduates continue their education at Seminole State.
SPCS and Seminole State have been longtime partners in education. This July will mark 50 years since the Seminole County School Board put its support behind the creation of a public junior college in Seminole County. Seminole State will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2015.
Tickets are required for admission to the graduation ceremony. For those unable to attend, a live video feed of the ceremony will be available online. For more information, please visit the graduation website.
