Seminole State College interior design student Adrienne Nunez is a woman with a plan: She and her fiancé, who plan to marry in February 2011, are going to build homes based on the principles of sustainability.
“We’re going to open up our own firm,” says Nunez, 20. “I’ll be the architect and designer, and he’ll be the builder. We’re a perfect match.”
First, they need to complete their degrees, and the Oviedo woman recently received some help toward that goal.
Nunez, a full-time student, has been named the 2010 recipient of The Honorary David A. Gottfried Scholarship from the Central Florida Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council. The $1,000 will go a long way, she says.
“I’ve been working myself through college with three jobs,” Nunez says. “My parents were so relieved when they found out I was awarded the scholarship.”
In addition to her part-time jobs, Nunez serves as president of the Oviedo Campus Environmental Club and secretary-treasurer of the Heathrow Campus Student Government Association.
After graduating in December 2010 with her A.A. plus an A.S. in Interior Design and an A.S. in Architectural Design and Construction Technology, Nunez plans to return to Seminole State for her bachelor’s degree in Interior Design. She’ll apply her scholarship toward her 4-year degree.
The Central Florida Chapter of the USGBC will publicly recognize Nunez at the chapter’s annual LEEDership Awards Dinner on Oct. 26.
