Three Seminole State students have been named to the 2011 Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) All-Florida Academic Team.

Ryan Genslinger, Daniel Leon and Juan Robayo – all members of the college’s Art and Phyllis Grindle Honors Institute – were selected for the team based on their academic success, leadership skills and community involvement. The students were recognized for their accomplishments during the annual Florida PTK Regional Convention, held March 4-6 in St. Petersburg.

PTK's 2011 All-Florida Academic Team is composed of 109 students representing the 28 colleges in the Florida College System and 2 independent institutions. The students were nominated by their respective colleges for the All-USA Academic Team.

  • Genslinger, of Lake Mary, vice president of service in the college’s PTK Chapter, plans to attend the University of Florida and major in health education and behavior after earning his Associate in Arts degree in April.
  • Leon, of Orlando, a 2011 Guistwhite Scholar, is executive vice president of the college’s PTK Chapter.
  • Robayo, of Oviedo, will graduate in April. He plans to major in microbiology and molecular biology at the University of Central Florida and then attend medical school. In December 2009, the Colombia native won a Pearson Biology Prize Scholarship. He also is the winner of a $5,000 Hispanic Heritage Scholarship.

Pi Lambda, Seminole State’s chapter of PTK, also was awarded five-star status, the highest in PTK, and received a Distinguished Chapter award, recognizing it as one of the top 10 chapters in Florida.

Phi Theta Kappa is an international honor society for two-year colleges. Members of PTK must demonstrate honor and service to others and maintain a 3.5 GPA or higher.

The Art & Phyllis Grindle Honors Institute offers enrichment programs for academically talented students wishing to enhance their experience at Seminole State. For more information, please visit the Honors Institute online.
