March 22, 2022 – For over 30 years, Santa Fe College has celebrated Women’s History Month by holding an annual ceremony lauding the achievements of women in Alachua and Bradford counties.

“Women of Distinction” are women who have enriched the community through their contributions to the arts, business, education, social services, government and other philanthropic ventures. These extraordinary women are examples for all women, balancing careers, families and community service, while making our community a better place for everyone.

SF also appreciates efforts of “Women of Promise,” young women in the community who are following in the footsteps of women before them, involving themselves in community activities while working toward a college degree.

This year, five women are being recognized as Women of Distinction, and one young woman as a Woman of Promise. They will be honored at a luncheon at the UF Hilton Wednesday, March 30, 2022. These incredible women were to have been honored in March of 2020, however the event was canceled due to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. As restrictions are being lifted, the college decided to give the women their due and honor them as the class of 2020. The college will be seeking nominations for the 2023 Women of Distinction in November of this year.
