April 23, 2014


Stephen Andrew Dvorak of Colombia, Tenn., and Melissa Laurel Cowley of Aurora, Colo., were named Mr. and Miss Florida College at the conclusion of the College’s assembly on Wednesday.

Since 1947 the Florida College student body has selected candidates to receive the institution’s highest award of Godly leadership and service. In the ceremony President Payne read remarks of both recipients as written by their peers.

Stephen Dvorak was distinguished as “humble and yet so intelligent…His diligent studies of scripture are a light to all who come in contact with him….He is committed, bright and dedicated as a student and as a servant.”

Melissa Cowley was praised as “…a funny, gentle-hearted lady of God,” whose “genuine concern and kindness to everyone makes others feel loved…She always has a smile on her face…Her genuine concern for others is obvious in every kind action she performs.”

We thank Stephen Dvorak and Melissa Cowley for their service and example, and congratulate them on receiving Florida College’s highest honor.
