Two Seminole State College of Florida construction management students have been selected to receive one of two $2,000 scholarships from W.W. Grainger.
Randy Pasquarelli, of Orlando, an Air Force veteran; and Timothy Wilson, of Altamonte Springs, were selected as part of Grainger's Tools for Tomorrow scholarship program.
Grainger, in conjunction with the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC), launched the Grainger Tools for Tomorrow scholarship program in 2006. The program is designed to help students enrolled in community college industrial skilled trades programs realize their education and career goals. The program works with AACC member colleges across the United States to award students who have demonstrated drive, commitment and leadership.
The students also received a tool kit from Grainger. This is the second consecutive year these scholarships have been awarded at Seminole State.
