April is Florida College System (FCS) Month. This month, the FCS is recognizing colleges for providing access to high-quality, affordable education for nearly 60 years.
Seminole State College of Florida is the eighth-largest institution in the FCS. Florida's 28 public colleges operate 178 sites throughout the state and serve 850,000 Floridians.
In his proclamation, Gov. Rick Scott said, "Nine of the top 10 fastest growing occupations require educational attainment beyond high school, and the Florida College System plays a critical role in educating and preparing Florida's workforce."
Here are a few highlights from the FCS:
"Our colleges provide high-quality education at the certificate, associate and baccalaureate levels that help students succeed in continuing their education or entering the workforce," said FCS Chancellor Randy Hanna. "And our colleges continually lead national rankings. …I invite you to join me in celebrating the Florida College System throughout the month of April."
Nationwide, state and community colleges are celebrated with National Community College Month.
