Oviedo woman an NKBA 'outstanding student'

Kristin Sellers and Mark Warren, president of NKBA's Central Florida chapter

Seminole State College of Florida student Kristin Sellers was recently recognized by the National Kitchen & Bath Association with a 2010 NKBA Outstanding Student Award.

Sellers received a scholarship and an all-expenses-paid trip to the NKBA show in Chicago.

The Oviedo woman completed her A.S. in Interior Design at Seminole State in 2008 and has been working on her Kitchen and Bath Design Certificate. Her winning design “was the final project in the class,” she says. “I hadn’t realized the instructor was going to submit it, so I was completely shocked when I won!”

Sellers works for a Winter Park interior design company and plans to pursue her bachelor’s in interior design from Seminole State.

In 2009, Sellers, 38, won first place in a design competition sponsored by the local chapter of the NKBA. She was nominated in 2008 by the Seminole State faculty to compete in a student career program sponsored by the North Florida Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers. A mother of two who left a corporate career in 2004 to explore interior design at Seminole State, Sellers was required to present her portfolio to a panel of interior design professionals. She was graded on personality, presentation skills and creativity. She won the Meredith Lacy Award and a $750 scholarship.

Seminole State College offers the only NKBA-endorsed program in Central Florida.

For more than 30 years, Seminole State’s Interior Design Program has been a leader in Florida. In January 2010, Seminole State became the first state school in Central Florida and the only two-year college in Florida to offer a four-year interior design degree.
