MDC Students Win Top Honors at 25th Annual FFEA State Conference

By Vanessa Soler

Students from the Miami Dade College Wolfson Campus Chapter of the Florida Future Educators of America Professional (FFEA Pro) returned from their annual state conference in Orlando, FL, with top honors.

MDC went up against other colleges and universities across the state.

Florida Future Educators of America (FFEA) is a pre-collegiate and collegiate program that provides a forum for students to become aware of career opportunities in education and nurtures their interest in teaching as a career.

MDC School of Education senior Krishel Panton won the first-place award for her speech entitled “Giving Back,” which she presented to more than 250 conference attendees.

Sophomore Andreany Arce won first place for her essay on a teacher who inspired her to reach for her dreams. The chapter also brought home the first place award for Chapter Spirit.

“I am so proud of our FFEA members for their achievements,” said Rebecca Sanchez, advisor for the chapter. “They prove that MDC students are not just leaders in the classroom, but professionals outside of the classroom as well.”
