Micolette Perry

Micolette Perry has an abiding faith in goodness.

She began her studies at Florida State through the Center for Academic Retention and Enhancement’s Summer Bridge Program, which supports culturally and economically disadvantaged students. Then, she made the Dean’s List, and stayed on it each and every semester.

Her faith guides her to help others.

As a site leader for the Panhandle Area Educational Consortium, she helped teach English to migrant workers. She mentors middle and high school students through the College Reach-Out Program, helping them prepare for the FCAT and SAT/ACT. She belongs to Students for Recycling, which promotes recycling at campus wide and sporting events, and she spends her Spring Breaks working for the Alternative Break Corps.

She has been honored with the Martin Luther King Scholarship, given to students who demonstrate a commitment to serving the community, and the Student Profiles of Service Award, given to a select few by the Center for Civic Education and Service.

Micolette will complete her study of Exercise Science and then she’s off to medical school. Once she’s become a family practice physician, she’ll work “toward improving her patients’ physical and mental health.”

We thank goodness for such a student.
