Ten EFSC Students Make All-Florida Academic Team

February 21, 2019 - Ten Eastern Florida State College students have been named to the 2019 All-Florida Academic Team for their outstanding scholarship and work in the community.

This year’s representatives tie the Eastern Florida record set in 2018, when 10 students from the College also made the team.

The All-Florida Academic Team consists of 158 students from the 28-member Florida College System that includes Eastern Florida.

The students were nominated by their colleges and selected based on high achievement in the classroom, leadership on campus and service to the community.

"These 10 students have gone above and beyond in academic excellence and their contributions to the college community and the Space Coast community at large," said College President Dr. Jim Richey.

"When you consider there are more than 800,000 students in the Florida College System, their achievement is truly remarkable. All of us at Eastern Florida are extremely proud of them."

Here are the winners, their home campuses and areas of study:


  • Dani Bowers, who is studying Office Administration
  • Michael Salinger, who is studying Chemical Technology


  • Katherine Dalton, who is pursuing an Associate in Arts Degree
  • Jack Goble, who is pursuing an Associate in Arts Degree
  • Jessica Nettles, who is studying Veterinary Technology


  • Anna Chang, who is pursuing an Associate in Arts Degree
  • Gaojun Chen, who is pursuing an Associate in Arts Degree
  • Donna McCardle, who is studying Office Administration
  • Shaeda Nickle, who is pursuing an Associate in Arts Degree
  • Daniela Tolosa, who is studying Chemical Technology

In making the team, the students have been nominated by Eastern Florida for selection to the All-USA Academic Team competition sponsored by the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society.

Members of the All-Florida Academic Team will be formally recognized during an April 4 awards ceremony at The Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in Orlando.
