Christi Ashby, editor and publisher of the women’s magazine Orange Appeal, was awarded the Seminole State College of Florida Distinguished Alumni Award during the commencement on April 29.

Ashby graduated from Seminole State in 1975 and received her Bachelor of Arts in Public Relations from the University of Florida in 1977.

Having managed and operated more than 10 national and regional publications, Ashby in 2011 is celebrating 25 years as a publishing and media professional. She was on the board of directors of the Florida Magazine Association for 12 years, serving as president twice.

She also assists dozens of nonprofit organizations and is on the board of Shepherd’s Hope, a faith-based organization that provides access to health care for the uninsured.

Earlier this year, Ashby was awarded a Women’s Executive Council Achievement Award. Her latest venture was the Orlando Women’s Conference, which took place April 5 at the Peabody Orlando and was designed to nurture women leaders.

Ashby has been married to husband Rob for 28 years and has two children, Nick and Kate. Her father, two sisters and husband are all graduates of Seminole State.

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.

A total of 1,263 associate degrees and program certificates were awarded this term by Seminole State, according to the College's Department of Enrollment Services.

Separate ceremonies also were held last week for the College’s career and adult education programs. Those ceremonies, which took place on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus, were as follows:

  • Physical Therapist Assistant Pinning Ceremony: Thursday, April 28, 7 p.m., Fine Arts Concert Hall (building G)
  • Secondary Studies for Adults Graduation: Thursday, April 28, 7:30 p.m., Health Center (building H)
