For the first time, Seminole State College of Florida has awarded degrees to students from all five of its baccalaureate programs.
More than 70 students, including the first graduates earning Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degrees in the College's Engineering Technology Program, received baccalaureate degrees during the Spring 2014 Commencement on Sunday, May 4, at the University of Central Florida.
Seminole State first awarded bachelor’s degrees in December 2011.
About 3,000 degrees and certificates were awarded collegewide this spring. Among the graduates were:
Dr. Walt Griffin, superintendent of Seminole County Public Schools (SCPS), addressed the graduates, noting the longtime partnership between SCPS and Seminole State. July will mark 50 years since the Seminole County School Board backed creating a public junior college in Seminole County. He also commended the graduates for their achievement.
"Seminole State has prepared you for your next step," he said. "Congratulations, you are well on your path to success."
Seminole State also announced its 2014 Endowed Teaching Chairs during the ceremony. The four honorees each received $5,000.
