CF Florida Future Educators Named Outstanding Chapter

ffea groupThe College of Central Florida chapter of Florida Future Educators of America received the Outstanding Chapter Award for the last quarter of 2015. The chapter will be recognized at the state FFEA Conference Jan. 29-31 in Orlando.

FFEA is a pre-collegiate and collegiate teacher recruitment program that gives students pursuing a career in education the opportunity to volunteer, cultivate leadership skills, and learn about the teaching profession.

The CF chapter was involved in a variety of events in 2015, including the March of Dimes Walk for Babies, United Day of Caring, Ocala’s “Grow in Kindness Day” dedicated to anti-bullying, and working with CF Partner In Education, College Park Elementary School.

FFEA members aided teachers at College Park in the “Positive Behavior Support” program, hosted a book fair at CF to raise money to purchase new books for the school, and took part in the annual CF “No Tricks Just Treats” costume parade where treats were distributed and an interactive story time was performed.
