Scott Howat, chairman of the Seminole State College Board of Trustees, has been honored as the 2013 Florida Trustee of the Year by the Association of Florida Colleges (AFC) Trustee Commission.
In his six years as a member of the Board of Trustees, Howat’s leadership has contributed to the success of the College and its students, as well as to the Central Florida region, says Dr. E. Ann McGee, president of Seminole State.
"Scott is being recognized for the countless hours that he has given to our college and our Florida College System as the consummate unpaid volunteer," McGee says. "He is highly respected for his integrity and diligence in working hard to bring people together for the good of all."
Howat, who works as senior director of labor and legislative relations for Orange County Public Schools, was re-elected to his fourth consecutive one-year term as Seminole State’s Board of Trustees’ chairman in August. His accomplishments include:
Howat accepted the award Friday, Sept. 13, at the AFC Trustees Commission Conference at Disney’s Contemporary Resort in Lake Buena Vista.
All Florida trustees who serve on district boards for any of the 28 FCS institutions were eligible for the award. As the state winner, Howat will represent Florida for the national trustee award through the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT).
