Alumni Success Stories
We're celebrating our alumni, many of whom benefited from scholarships made possible by donors to the Eastern Florida State College Foundation.
Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, College alumni realized their dreams for a better life and career success through higher education. Here are a few of the alumni stories. Please consider helping even more students become successful graduates by donating to the EFSC Foundation.
Education for the Future
Victoria Godwin's time at EFSC and scholarship she received through the Foundation helped her earn her A.A. degree and move on to UCF to fulfill her dream of becoming a teacher.
Proud to be a Titan (Again!)
Niccole Patellis earned her Aerospace Tech A.S. degree then an A.A. degree and plans to start an EFSC computer science bachelor program. As a working mom, an EFSC Foundation scholarship made that possible. "If you were the donor I would say thank you so much. It meant a lot. It made me feel like I had a team."
The Safety Net for Success
When Benson Hay was working toward his firefighter and EMT certificates at the EFSC Public Safety Institute, he reached a point where he could not pay his tuition.
The EFSC Foundation network came to the rescue with a life-changing scholarship.
