Board of Directors Awards

The Foundation Board of Directors also recognizes members of the community who have generously supported the College and gone above and beyond to nurture the growth of Seminole State through the following awards:

Barbara Miller Chairperson's Award

Since 2006, the Foundation Board Chairman has selected a Board member to receive the annual Chairman’s Award.  Selection is based on leadership service on the Foundation Board of Directors and donation of time, talent and treasure on behalf of Seminole State College.

In 2017, the Foundation Board of Directors voted to rename this prestigious award to the "Barbara A. Miller Chairperson's Award," in recognition of the many years of service Miller provided to the Foundation Board, the Central Florida Auto Dealers Association and the College. Miller was the first female chair of the Foundation Board and the first recipient of this award.
