South Florida State College’s (SFSC) Association of Florida Colleges (AFC) members are preparing for the 65th Annual AFC Convention, Oct. 28-31, in Destin, Fla.
Those attending this year’s convention are Cheryl Arpasi, Tammy Bush, Dr. Robert Flores, Deb Gutierrez, Wynnie Jaurigue, Bob Land, Keith Loweke, Lena Phelps, Summer Miller, Go Ramnarain, Tammy Snow, and Wade Williams. Also attending are Dr. Thomas Leitzel, SFSC president; Dr. Norman Stephens Jr., SFSC president emeritus; and Tami Cullens, SFSC trustee.
At convention, members will have access to an exhibit hall with more than 30 diverse educational programs, informative membership and association-related meetings, exemplary practice presentations, professional development, recognitions and awards, and excellent networking opportunities. AFC’s convention provides an excellent opportunity for collaboration between colleges, chapters, regions, commissions, and programs throughout the state.
AFC’s Ways and Means Committee is collecting donated items through Oct. 27 for this year’s Annual Convention Community Service Project to benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Florida and The Hansen House in Sebring, Fla. Collection bins are located at every SFSC campus.
The Ronald McDonald House Charities project will help families who have loved ones in the hospital over the holidays. The Hansen House project will help abused and abandoned teenage girl’s ages 13 to 17 years old who are in the residential program and are living at the emergency shelter. For more information on donating, contact Keith Loweke, Ways and Means Committee chair, at ext. 7219 or Keith.Loweke@southflorida.edu.
