The Central Florida community continues to grieve following the Pulse night club shooting. Unfortunately, the Seminole State College community lost a member of our family - Luis Vielma, 22.
Luis graduated Cum Laude in Summer 2014 with an Associate in Arts Degree. He was enrolled in a summer class and was planning to continue this fall in the EMS program and for those of us who didn’t know him, Luis is being remembered as a true friend and great co-worker. He worked at Universal Orlando at the Harry Potter ride. His death even touched Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling who Tweeted early Monday:
Seminole State College held a moment of silence Thursday June 16 on all four Seminole State campuses in honor of those killed and injured.
We stand together and continue to think of and pray for the victims, their families and friends, the LGBT community, the Hispanic community, our students, our employees and all of Orlando in the aftermath of this tragedy.
As we all continue to recover and go forward, there are ways you can help. Visit http://www.cityoforlando.net/ to learn more.
