Alumni Legacy Awards

The legacy left behind by Seminole State College of Florida alumni is recognized by many as extraordinary. Many alumni have gone on to be leaders in the community, making a difference in a great number of lives. It is because of these unique individuals that Seminole State is known as a trailblazer among notable Florida state colleges. The true measure of a college is found in the achievements of its alumni, which led the Alumni Association to create the Alumni Legacy Awards. At this event, the Distinguished Alumni, Outstanding Graduate, Alumni Excellence Honors, and Honors Alumni Award are presented.
