On Feb. 12, 2022, the Foundation for Seminole State College will hold its 38th Annual Dream Gala to benefit student scholarships and programs at the College. Presented by Addition Financial, at the Orlando Marriott Lake Mary, next year’s event is inspired by Valentine’s Day. We are looking forward to coming together to show the power of love for Seminole State College.
