Among the graduates were:

  • Alice Mulcock of Orange City. She recently won first place in kitchen design as part of the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s Student Design Competition.
  • Mary Anderson of Winter Park. Disabled in 2003, she was named to the Phi Theta Kappa All-Florida Academic Team. She was honored as one of 30 Distinguished Members internationally.
  • Christine Harr of Osteen. She had dropped out of college 30 years ago. Harr, the wife of a disabled Vietnam War veteran, plans to eventually start a foundation for families of disabled veterans.

In a first for Seminole State College, about 1,000 people watched the graduation via live streaming video.
