The Office of Student Life at Seminole State College of Florida recognized its achievements at its 2013-14 End of Year Awards Celebration on Thursday, April 17, at the Embassy Suites in Altamonte Springs.
More than 150 students, faculty and staff gathered for the semi-formal event, which included a live band, a buffet dinner and dancing. Student Government Association (SGA) Presidents Nicole Brown-Goldman (Sanford/Lake Mary Campus) and Ansha Roberts (Altamonte Springs Campus) served as emcees for the banquet, and Seminole State President Dr. E. Ann McGee kicked off the festivities with a welcome.
"Being involved in student activities saved my life as a student," McGee said. "It taught me lessons that I use today. My hope for each of you is that you've learned lessons to take forward with you."
During the awards ceremony, more than 100 students, representing 20 clubs and organizations at Seminole State, were honored for their contributions throughout the year. Club advisors nominated these students based on their involvement in community service, campus activities and leadership training.
SGA at each campus selected the recipients for Club of the Year based on participation in Council of Presidents meetings, community service and student activities, and overall commitment to Student Life and its constitution.
