Two Seminole State College of Florida students have been named to the Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) 2010 All-Florida Academic Second Team.

Sophomores Lani Milton and Tatiana Viecco — both members of the College's Art & Phyllis Grindle Honors Institute — were selected for the team based on their academic accomplishments, leadership skills and contributions to the community.

Milton, 20, a Seminole High School graduate who lives in Lake Mary, is president of Seminole State's Pi Lambda chapter of PTK and a member of the College's Student Government Association. She also works as a photographer's assistant and has volunteered with Invisible Children, a movement that seeks to rebuild schools, educate future leaders and provide jobs for child soldiers in war-torn Northern Uganda.

Milton has a 3.6 GPA and will graduate from Seminole State this summer. She plans to transfer to Rollins College or the University of Central Florida to pursue a bachelor's degree in international affairs or anthropology.

Viecco, 21, a Colombia native who spoke no English when she moved to the United States in 2004, serves as vice president of Seminole State's Pi Lambda chapter of PTK on the Oviedo Campus as well as activities chair of the Hispanic Student Association. The Winter Springs resident also tutors students in the College's Academic Success Center and is active in the Sigma Phi Gamma and Seminole State Volunteers community service organizations.

Viecco maintains a 3.7 GPA. After graduating from Seminole State this summer, she plans to transfer to UCF to pursue joint bachelor's-master's degrees in industrial engineering.

Milton and Viecco were recognized for their accomplishments during the PTK Annual Convention, held April 8-10 at Walt Disney World's Swan and Dolphin Resort.

Phi Theta Kappa is an international honor society for two-year colleges.

PTK's All-Florida Academic Team is composed of 103 students who were nominated by their respective colleges for the All-USA Academic Team.

The Art & Phyllis Grindle Honors Institute offers enrichment programs for academically talented students wishing to enhance their experience at Seminole State. For more information, please visit the Honors Institute online.
