Seminole State students, staff hold remembrance for Pulse shooting victims

Students, faculty and staff form a heart on Seminole State's Sanford/Lake Mary Campus as students from the College's Center for Public Safety stand in formation to honor the victims.

Seminole State College of Florida's Student Government Association (SGA) and UNITY Gay-Straight Alliance held a remembrance ceremony Monday, June 12, to honor the 49 people who lost their lives at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando.

Seminole State student Luis S. Vielma, 22, was one of the people killed.

Vielma graduated Cum Laude in Summer 2014 with an Associate in Arts degree and was planning to continue in the Emergency Medical Services program.

He was an attendant for the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride and was known by his friends at Universal Orlando for his bravery and kindness.

One year ago, the Foundation for Seminole State College established the Luis Vielma Memorial Scholarship, which will assist students in public safety and health care programs. Leading up to today’s remembrance, the Foundation offered #YouMattered T-shirts to those who made donations to the scholarship fund. To make a donation, go to https://seminolestate13262.thankyou4caring.org/luis-vielma.
