February 19, 2020 – Two Santa Fe College Honors Program students won statewide awards at the Florida Collegiate Honors Council conference earlier this month.

Gionela Lepage received the Dr. Mary Jo Henderson $1,000 scholarship for her excellent academics, volunteer service and leadership activities. She becomes the sixth SF Honors Program student to win the Mary Jo Henderson scholarship since 2012. Gionela will graduate in the spring, and has earned a 4.0 GPA at SF. Following graduation, she intends to transfer to the University of Florida as a Biomedical Engineering major.

Caroline Crawford was awarded third place in the conference’s art exhibition and received a $100 cash award for a painting she completed in her SF painting course. She will also graduate this semester and has applied to UF as a Fine Arts Studio major.

Students in SF’s Honors Program see an 88% acceptance rate to the University of Florida.
