By: Jennell Retamar
The annual Honors Celebration will be held April 5 in the Eleanor Searle Drawing Room at 5 p.m. Various awards will be handed out that evening including senior awards.
Two of the most prestigious awards a senior can win is the James C. Rogers award and the Agnes Johnson Rowe award, previously known as the Miss Southern award.
These awards are a school wide vote to recognize an outstanding senior student in the FSC Community. These seniors are nominated based on scholarship, activity, and time served to the campus community.
Among those nominated for the James C. Rogers award are Joseph D. Alter, Joey Arteaga, Chase Hoyt, Kyle Shatto and Tyler Philolius.
The nominees for the Agnes Johnson Rowe award are Grace Diaz, Madeleine Henderson, Jessica Finocchiaro and Elise Pullen.
There will also be awards given to individual students, faculty and staff, and also campus organizations.
The winners of the recent Student Government election will also be announced at the event.
“I try to approach everything I do with passion,” Jessica Finocchiaro, a mathematics major, said. “I honestly don’t feel overly qualified to receive this award.”
Kyle Shatto, a Broadcast, Print and Online Media major and Spanish minor, said that his favorite leadership position to hold was IFC President.
“I feel like I made a positive impact on our Greek community, which makes up such a large portion of Florida Southern,” Shatto said.
