MADISON, FL – North Florida Community College’s brightest students were honored during the college’s Honors Convocation ceremony April 9 at the NFCC Fine Arts Auditorium. Students from various academic areas and student organizations received recognition for outstanding achievement and character during the 2012-2013 academic year. NFCC faculty and staff announced each award recipient as NFCC President John Grosskopf and Dean of Academic Affairs Dr. Sharon Erle presented the awards.
Alana Ellison of Madison received NFCC’s prestigious “Student of the Year” award. Ellison serves as the Student Government Association (SGA) President Elect and is also as a member of Sentinel Service Corp.
“The student who is the recipient of this award not only excels in the classroom with a current GPA of 3.66, but has shown a spirit of generosity and service that few students possess,” said NFCC Dean of Academic Affairs Dr. Sharon Erle. “She is a member of the Sentinel Service Corp and the Student Government Association. This student cares deeply about her campus and community. During her time at NFCC she has worked as student assistant in the Office of Campus Life as well as an English tutor. This student truly embodies the spirit of a Sentinel through scholarship and service.”
In addition to recognizing outstanding students, NFCC also named its 2012-2013 “Friend to the College.” Elouise Green was recognized for her continuous support of NFCC. Green is a Lafayette County resident and serves on NFCC’s Foundation Board.
“Elouise Green has served on NFCC’s Foundation for many years. She has served countless hours volunteering at NFCC fundraising events. Her love for the college is boundless,” said Grosskopf.
NFCC’s Honors Convocation ceremony is held annually in April to recognize outstanding students and celebrate student achievement prior to NFCC’s Spring Term commencement ceremony in May.
