Outstanding Graduate Award Winner

Congratulations to our Outstanding Graduate Award Winner, Luke Sandlin! #SCFProud

Luke Sandlin

Luke Gregory Sandlin

Luke graduates with his Associate in Arts degree while maintaining a 3.74 grade point average, plans to study political science at the University of Florida in the fall. His ultimate goal is managing political campaigns. "Maybe running for something someday." He was vice president and membership leader of SCF's Student Government Association, the student president of the theatre honor society Delta Psi Omega and was a speaker at the SCF Foundation's sixth annual scholarship fundraising event, Avenues to the Future. He says SCF has completely changed his life. "Every day I wake up for classes at SCF I’m interested, fascinated and curious -- something I never had in high school." He says SCF gave him the tools to be able to focus on his goals. "You can fully immerse yourself in whatever you choose to. A place where you can set your phone down, tune out distractions, and learn. Why not make the most of it?"

Outstanding Graduate Award Finalists

Nicholas Jurczyk

Nicholas S. Jurczyk

Nicholas took advantage of SCF's dual enrollment program to get his Associate in Arts degree while he was still in high school at 17. With a 3.93 GPA, he's been accepted into the University of Florida Honors Program, where he'll study computer engineering. His long-term plans are to pursue a doctorate and become involved with developing new technologies. Nicholas was a member of SCF's Model United Nations team, which won Best Position Paper Team Awards in 2019 and 2020. He also was a member of his high school jazz band and Investors Club. He runs his own business, KTN, which focuses on webpage design and fabrication of 3D plans via computer assisted design. "I was challenged at SCF to grow as a person. I find that the frequent interaction with professors is much more enriching than anything I experienced in high school. I am treated like an adult, and I have worked hard to live up to that expectation."

It will also give you the necessary skills to be successful at SCF and beyond.”
