The Diversity Council and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at Seminole State College of Florida celebrated excellence in education during its annual Kaleidoscope Engagement Breakfast on April 12 at the Westin Lake Mary.

Honorees at this year’s event, A Celebration of Educators, included members of the college and the local community. Dr. Valarie King, Director of the Office of Diversity Initiatives at the University of Central Florida received the Community Champion award for her longtime commitment to promoting diversity in Central Florida. She will retire from UCF in August after nearly 25 years of service. Seminole State’s Career Development Center was named College Diversity Champion for its work with various student groups, including veterans and students with disabilities.

In addition to the champion awards honorees, the event recognized the dedication, diligence and compassion of past, present and future educators. Among those in attendance were Seminole County Public Schools (SCPS) teachers and employees of the year as well as administrators from UCF and SCPS.

The Celebration of Educators was part of the College’s Kaleidoscope Engagements, a series of activities, workshops and presentations intended to promote individualism and inclusion at Seminole State. The event was held in partnership with UCF.

About Seminole State’s Diversity Council: The Diversity Council was established in 2003 to ensure the College's student and employee demographics mirror those of Seminole County and Central Florida, and to support an environment in which diverse populations are encouraged to achieve their goals.
