Five President’s Scholars have joined Florida College’s freshman class this fall!
Sloan Hastings, Alexander Mitchell, Cassie Miller, Nolan Baker and Jacob Britnell (pictured above, left to right) will receive president’s scholarships from Florida College for their academic achievements. Each President’s Scholar earned a 3.65 GPA or above in high school and at least a 32 on the ACT or a 1410 on the SAT.
High-achieving students like this year’s President’s Scholars come to Florida College for a rigorous academic experience and an opportunity to build lifelong relationships and grow spiritually.
Sloan Hastings is from Temple Terrace, Florida, and graduated from C. Leon King High School. He will be in the pre-law program at Florida College and hopes to pursue a career as an attorney. Sloan is also interested in joining a society, student government, Alpha Club and Rotaract.
“I chose Florida College in part because every student I have ever talked to has enjoyed their experience here.”
Alexander Mitchell is from Wesley Chapel, Florida. He plans to attend Florida College for two years and then transfer to another school to major in chemical engineering. Alexander would like to join a society and is also considering joining CREST Club.
“As a Freshman here, I am most excited about meeting new people who will hopefully become close friends and also about learning science from a biblical perspective as opposed to the way it is taught in high school.”
Cassie Miller is a freshman from Bloomington, Illinois. She is currently a member of the Florida College cross-country team and is planning to play society sports as well. Cassie hopes to earn a bachelor’s degree in biblical education and become a wife and stay-at-home mother.
“This year, I am looking forward to being surrounded by people with the same ultimate goal, making new friends, learning how to grow closer to God, experiencing Bible classes, getting a quality education and much more.”
Nolan Baker played varsity football at his high school in Warrior, Alabama. He’s looking forward to joining a society at Florida College to play society sports. Nolan will be in the pre-med program and hopes to attend medical school after graduation.
“As a kid growing up, I always felt like there is a type of person I wanted to be when I was an adult. Florida College seemed like the best option for letting me become that person.”
Jacob Britnell is a freshman from Athens Bible School in Athens, Alabama. This semester, he is looking forward to spending time with old friends and making new ones. Jacob is also excited to attend Bible classes and plans to major in biblical studies at Florida College.
“My dad attended Florida College and always talks about the great time that he had here and the great friends he made who he still keeps in contact with today. I came to Florida College for the same experience.”
