The Foundation for Seminole State College’s Presidents’ Club focused on networking and building relationships at its event on Wednesday, June 18.
About 60 people attended the event, held at Café Murano in Altamonte Springs, including Presidents’ Club members and officials from Seminole County and the City of Altamonte Springs.
“We give our heartfelt thanks for the significant contributions and continued support over the years to our Presidents’ Club members and friends of the College,” says Dr. John Gyllin, executive director of the Foundation. “2014 promises to be a year of opportunity for connection, communication and collaboration.”
Timothy Alfes, a business student from Lake Mary, was presented with a $1,000 Presidents’ Club Student Scholarship. Alfes’ story of determination, as a father of four who is juggling full-time classes at Seminole State and a full-time job, inspired Foundation Board of Directors member Ken Rosenfield to match the scholarship through his company, Rosenfield and Co.
Alfes, who was unemployed when he started at Seminole State in 2012, says he will use the scholarship to pay for classes he’s taking this summer. Alfes earned his Associate in Science (A.S.) in Accounting in December and will graduate with an A.S. in Business Administration and an Associate in Arts (A.A.) at the end of the Summer Term. He intends to pursue his bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Central Florida starting in August.
Presidents' Club membership is granted to individual and corporate donors who contribute a minimum annual unrestricted gift of $1,000. These gifts are applied to the areas of greatest need at the college. Since its conception in 2001, Presidents’ Club memberships have raised $1.4 million for scholarships and programs that benefit the college.
