Sabrina O'Bryan is distinguished alumna

Fall commencement took place Dec. 10.

Sabrina O’Bryan, assistant county manager for Seminole County, was awarded the Seminole State College of Florida Distinguished Alumni Award during the commencement on Dec. 10.

O’Bryan graduated from Seminole State in 1995 and was hired by Seminole County in 1998 as a senior staff assistant.

District Board of Trustees member Scott Howat presents Sabrina O'Bryan with the Distinguished Alumni award.

As she moved up the career ladder, she attended Barry University, receiving her Bachelor of Science in professional administration in 2005.

In 2008 she completed the Leadership Seminole program. Her diverse background also includes more than 10 years of experience in the county’s Economic Development, Information Technologies and Environmental Services departments. O’Bryan also chairs the county’s Charitable Giving Committee and has served as a Seminole County Regional Chamber Ambassador and as a member of the chamber’s Industry Recognition Committee.

O’Bryan, who lives in Oviedo, says her time at Seminole State taught her “the value of finishing what you start.” Relying on grants and a series of part-time and full-time jobs, O’Bryan took four years to complete her two-year degree at the College. “I handled it in manageable chunks, semester by semester, and learning to do that dictates how you do everything else throughout your life,” she says.

Married with three children, O’Bryan says she continues to apply that strategy as she juggles her professional and personal responsibilities.

The Distinguished Alumni Award honors Seminole State graduates who have demonstrated service to the College and/or community; have achieved success in their chosen field; and who are considered role models for Seminole State students.
