Seminole State College of Florida’s supply chain management program hosts economic growth leaders

SANFORD, Fla. (Oct. 26, 2015) – Florida business leaders and educators from the fields of supply chain management (SCM) and logistics recently came together at Seminole State College of Florida to talk about growth and trends in these industries.

 

The meeting comes as Seminole State launches its two-year degree program in the high-demand field of supply chain management. The College is the first public college or university in the Orlando region to offer an undergraduate degree in SCM.

 

In addition to representatives from 15 Florida College System institutions, participants in the Florida Supply Chain Consortium included:

 

·         Steve South, assistant director and procurement technical assistance center manager for the Florida Small Business Development Center at the University of Central Florida. South also works as a director for the Reverse Logistics & Sustainability Counsel, a trade association dedicated to reverse logistics.

·         Bridget Pepe, senior sourcing specialist for Universal Parks & Resorts, focusing on technical services supporting Universal Studios Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood.

·         Alex Trauger, manager of long range planning for MetroPlan Orlando. 
 

“Our new Supply Chain Management Program is a direct result of requests from our industry advisory boards,” says Dr. Chris Beehner, program manager for Seminole State’s SCM program. ”This meeting of the minds helps our faculty stay abreast of this ever-changing field so our graduates are prepared.”

 

According to Workforce Central Florida, over the next five years economic projections for the Central Florida region show growth in the supply chain management industry with an estimated 33,500+ job openings coming on line. These jobs will include positions for purchasing agents and managers, distribution managers, logisticians, management analysts and cost estimators. The average entry-level salary in Central Florida for these positions is more than $40,000 per year, according to federal data.

Seminole State College debuts redesigned Raiders logo

SANFORD, Fla. (Oct. 22, 2015) – Nearly half a century after the first Raiders Athletics teams took the field, Seminole State College of Florida is ushering in the next generation of its athletics program with a redesigned logo.

The logo, which features a sharp-eyed hawk scanning from a perched position, was created in-house by Seminole State’s design team. In addition to the navy and Carolina blue long-associated with Raiders Athletics, the logo introduces gold, which has been part of Seminole State’s branding since 1998.

“I like to think of the new look as another evolution of the Raiders,” says John Scarpino, director of athletics. “We’re enthusiastic about this next step and all the exciting ideas we have on how the College will utilize the new Raiders logo.”

Beyond Raiders Athletics, the College plans to use the new logo as a jumping-off point for fostering a broader sense of pride and camaraderie among students, alumni and staff, says Dr. Jan Lloyd, associate vice president of Student Development, who oversees athletics, intramural sports, wellness and student life.

“Our aim is to get students, alumni and Central Florida excited about Seminole State and our athletics program,” Lloyd says.

The bird of prey has been the Raiders’ visual concept, with some modifications, since the inception of the athletics program. The previous iteration had been in use since 2003. This newest design was timed to coincide with Seminole State’s 50th anniversary.

In redesigning the logo, the creative team in College Relations and Marketing relied on research and images from native Florida birds found at the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens in Sanford. 

The redesigned logo was unveiled at Spirit Day on Tuesday, Oct. 20, which also celebrated the Seminole State women’s golf team, winner of the 2015 NJCAA national championship.

Seminole State competes in three NJCAA Division I sports: baseball, softball and women’s golf. For more information, please visitwww.seminolestate.edu/ athletics/.

City of Sanford to Participate in Florida City Government Week:
October 18-24, 2015
 

The City of Sanford will be participating in Florida City Government Week October 18-24, 2015.   Florida City Government Week is part of an ongoing effort sponsored by the Florida League of Cities to raise public awareness about the services that cities perform and to educate the public on how City government works.

 
Cities are encouraged to involve their local schools, businesses, media and civic clubs in their Florida City Government Week activities. The theme of this year’s Florida City Government Week is “My City: I'm Part of It, I'm Proud of It”. Because City government is the government closest to the people and the one with the most direct daily impact upon the entire community, City officials feel they have a responsibility to pass along their understanding of public services and their benefits.

 
Activities planned during Florida City Government week include:

 
Tuesday, October 20th 5:30pm-6:30pm

"Walk and Learn" with Mayor Jeff Triplett and City Manager, Norton Bonaparte. The public is invited to meet at Veterans Memorial Park, 110 E. Seminole Blvd. (comfortable walking shoes are suggested). Hear from Mayor Jeff Triplett and City Manager Norton Bonaparte on a brief overview of local government, how City Parks are an important public service and how public parks help to increase the health and wellness of our community.  Prior to the walk, there will be time for questions and then we'll all depart on a leisurely walk toward RiverWalk Phase II and back to Veterans Memorial Park. If you feel like walking faster, by all means, please do. The total distance back and forth is 2 miles. The Mayor's Youth Council will also be participating in this event. For more information on all the City’s 29 Parks visit Park Map.

 
Wednesday, October 21

Hope Duncan, Environmental Coordinator, City of Sanford will speak about “Fat Free” Sewers to the business community of the Greater Sanford Regional Chamber of Commerce’s at their Business Connections event, as grease is the number two problem in the nation for sanitary sewer overflows, which over time, could lead to costly infrastructure situations.

 
Friday, October 23

Mayor Triplett and the Mayor’s Youth Council will be introduced and the City of Sanford will be recognized prior to the halftime show at Sanford’s Seminole High School home football game which begins at 7pm.
