Five outstanding GED students were presented scholarships to continue their education at Seminole State College of Florida during the GED Program Graduation on Wednesday, May 5.

Seminole State student Harrison Reagan, of Geneva, won the R.J. Schmidt and E.S. Douglas Scholarship, a $1,000 award. Reagan will start classes at Seminole State in August, working toward his A.A. degree.

Other winners were:

  • Allyson Pfeifer, of Sanford, whose goal is an education degree.
  • Michael Miller, of Casselberry, who plans to enroll in the Automotive Technology program at Seminole State and eventually own an auto repair shop.
  • Kathryn Barngrover, of Longwood, who intends to earn her A.A. degree at Seminole State, with a focus on science. Her ultimate goal is medical school and a career as a forensic pathologist.
  • Nina Mahl, of Sanford, who will pursue courses that will give her the medical background necessary to succeed in pharmaceutical sales.

A total of $2,300 was given to the recipients. The scholarships were funded by donations to the Foundation for Seminole State College and allow the students to transition from the GED program to Seminole State’s college-level degree programs.

Seminole State’s GED Prep program is free for those who qualify. For more information, please call 407.708.2153.
