Top MDC Student Angie Flores Named “Student of the Month” by Florida College System Chancellor

Miami, April 17, 2013 - The Florida College System chancellor has recognized Miami Dade College (MDC) North Campus student, Angie Flores, as April’s “Student of the Month.” Fittingly, the award recognizes outstanding students who demonstrate leadership skills, academic success, and/or commitment to community service. Maintaining a 4.0 GPA, Flores has taken on a leadership role since she entered MDC as a freshman in the institution's highly regarded Honors College. The 20-year-old, social work major has represented MDC at events of national significance and is committed to community causes.

“She is an exceptional student, model leader, and one who is passionate about paying it forward to the community,” says MDC-North Campus’ Dean of Students Malou C. Harrison, adding that Flores, “has demonstrated a remarkable balance between her academics and her co-curricular engagements, excelling in all.”

As a freshman, Flores joined MDC’s Student Government Association (SGA), and assumed the role of director of internal affairs for the 2011-2012 academic year. She was later elected to her current role of vice president. As a result of her campus engagement, Flores was selected to represent MDC at The National Press Conference for the Aspen Institute in Washington, DC, where she introduced Dr. Jill Biden. She is frequently called upon at the college to address large audiences and high profile forums with dignitaries.

Additionally, Flores has served as a mentor and teacher for middle school aged girls with the National Girls Ministry. She’s has also been a youth leader and Sunday school teacher for the past five years.

Students are recognized by the Florida College System Chancellor in monthly newsletters, which are available to the public at and distributed across the state. As part of the honor, students receive a “Certificate of Recognition” and letter from the chancellor.
