Seminole State College of Florida was named a Gold Chapter at the 63rd Annual Association of Florida Colleges Convention, held Oct. 31-Nov. 2, 2012, in Palm Harbor, Fla.
The convention’s 48 professional development sessions covered a wide range of topics, offering something of interest for all participants.
Jacquelyn Thompson, manager of Virtual Student Services, presented a segment at the AFC Student Development Commission meeting on Nov. 1 entitled “A Learning-Centered System for Student Success,” which discussed Seminole State’s eServices program. It was one of four presentations selected as a finalist for the May 2013 AFC Student Development Commission Conference.
As the winners of the Exemplary Practice Award last spring, Debbie Lynch, director of Counseling and Advising, and Alvin Mitchell, educational advisor, also had the opportunity to give a presentation at the Student Development Commission meeding. Their presentation was entitled “First Time in College Group Advising/Parent Orientation.”
The Oviedo Campus’ Dean of Students Randy Pawlowski gave a presentation about setting and prioritizing life goals. The presentation was seen by the 38 members of the Career Professionals Commission.
Graphic designer Andrea Bourgoin’s artwork won the Career and Professional Employees Commission logo competition.
The convention participates in a service project each year, and this year’s project was for the benefit of Ready for Life, an organization that helps children making the transition from foster care to adult life. Each of the 28 participating colleges brought items to contribute to the charity.
