Seminole State College graduated its largest class on Friday, April 27, awarding more than 1,600 associate degrees and program certificates during its Spring Commencement ceremony.

Dr. John Hitt, president of the University of Central Florida, was the keynote speaker. During the ceremony, Hitt was awarded an honorary bachelor of science in construction.

Among the graduates were:

  • Charles Bilyue of Casselberry. He's one of only 60 students in the country to be named a Jack Kent Cooke Scholar for 2012. He is also the only Central Florida winner of the $60,000 prize.
  • Alice Mulcock of Orange City. She recently won first place in kitchen design as part of the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s Student Design Competition.
  • Mary Anderson of Winter Park. Disabled in 2003, she was named to the Phi Theta Kappa All-Florida Academic Team. She was honored as one of 30 Distinguished Members internationally.
  • Christine Harr of Osteen. She had dropped out of college 30 years ago. Harr, the wife of a disabled Vietnam War veteran, plans to eventually start a foundation for families of disabled veterans.

In a first for Seminole State College, about 1,000 people watched the graduation via live streaming video.
