Seminole State College of Florida President Dr. E. Ann McGee was named the Hispanic Community Champion at the annual Don Quijote Awards Gala, Saturday, Dec. 10.
The award recognizes a non-Hispanic individual who has lead by example in supporting the progress of the Hispanic community in Central Florida.
McGee says she shares the award with the entire College Community. More than 25 percent of the student body is Hispanic, making Seminole State an official Hispanic Serving Institution.
Thanks to a partnership with the Hope CommUnity Center in Apopka, the College provides access to a college education for Hispanic students and offers a number of scholarships specifically for Hispanic students.
The gala, hosted by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metro Orlando and Prospera, was held at Epcot’s World Showplace Pavilion.
