Updated: May 1, 2017

Andrea Velez, assistant director of academic advising and counseling at Seminole State College of Florida, has been named to the 2017 Class of the National Community College Hispanic Council (NCCHC) Leadership Fellows Program. 

“The Academic Advising and Counseling Team is extremely proud of Andrea for this accomplishment,” says Deborah Lynch, director of Academic Advising and Counseling at Seminole State. “Andrea is well deserving of the honor and will represent both our department and Seminole State College brilliantly.”

According to Ted Martinez, executive director of the NCCHC Leadership Fellows Program, the program will include engaging speakers and group exercises designed to help the participates enhance their leadership skills and abilities.

Velez, a graduate of Seminole State’s 2016-17 Leadership Academy, will attend two seminars and one symposium, beginning with the summer 2017 seminar June 7-10 in San Diego. The following seminar and the symposium will be held in Miami in September.

“I feel honored and privileged to have been nominated and selected to represent Seminole State College in this program,” says Velez. “I am excited for the opportunity to enhance my skillset so I can contribute toward the growth and development of Seminole State.”

Established more than 30 years ago, the National Community College Hispanic Council's mission includes preparation and support of Hispanic leaders in America's community colleges, to the ultimate benefit of their students. One of NCCHC's first ventures was to offer a leadership development program, with support from the Ford Foundation. Their commitment is to deliver a high quality leadership development experience that provides Hispanics with an opportunity to continue their professional growth.
