Seminole State sophomore Juan Robayo has been named to the 2011 Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team and was featured in USA Today on Monday, April 11.
The honors student was selected based on his commitment to community service and on scores earned in the All-USA Community College Academic Team competition. More than 1,600 students competed.
Robayo, 21, of Oviedo, was named one of only 50 Silver Scholars in the country. His $1,250 award will go toward books and tuition at the University of Central Florida, he says. His plan is to major in biotechnology and molecular biology and then attend medical school. Eventually, he'd like to practice medicine in the rural areas of his native Colombia. Robayo is one of only two Silver Scholars in Central Florida.
Students are nominated by their respective colleges to the All-USA Academic Team competition, which is sponsored by USA Today and Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society for two-year colleges.
