FKCC grad selected as "Chancellor's Student of the Month"
Yadiris Wood, who graduated last month with an Associate in Arts from Florida Keys Community College, was selected as a “Chancellor’s Student of the Month” by the Florida College System’s Chancellor Randy Hanna. The award recognizes outstanding students who demonstrate leadership skills, academic success, and/or commitment to community service through their involvement in the Florida College System.
FKCC criminal justice instructor Amy Ray nominated Wood for the award citing her commitment to academic excellence and pursuit of a well-rounded educational experience.
“Not only does she set the curve in each class she has taken with me but she never ceases to amaze me with her level of thoughtfulness, factually supported positions, thorough research, and genuine care and consideration with her work,” said Ray.
Wood currently works with the Key West Association of Realtors as an Association Executive and plans to continue her education through an online bachelor’s degree program. ___________________________________________________________________

Memorial Day Salute from FKCC President to Service Members, President Emeritus
May 24, 2013— “All across the country, we will all celebrate Memorial Day in many different ways. For many it is the unofficial start of summer that ushers in the season of backyard barbecues, boating and bedazzling fireworks. Memorial Day is also a day to celebrate and honor the memories of those who died for our country and for all of us. It is a time for heroes many of whom are still alive. Some are doing quite well and others are simply holding their own. Many of our heroes came home and continue to serve in a variety of ways that benefit our communities. I salute all of our current servicemen and women wherever they are at this moment and to thank them and their families for all that they have done and continue to do to protect our freedom. I also take a moment before we embark on our respective traditions to salute all of our veterans and their families.
There are many veterans who have been associated with Florida Keys Community College and they all deserve special recognition. Today, however, I am saluting FKCC President Emeritus Dr. William A. Seeker who served in the United States Army as a Paratrooper reaching the rank of Captain. After his five years of active duty and his five years of reserve, Dr. Seeker began a career in higher education and came to FKCC as the third president in 1979. His accomplishments as president include garnering funds for the construction of a new $40 million campus in Key West 1997, which is now duly named the “William A. Seeker Campus.” Click here to read the full article.
