St. Augustine, Fla. — Flagler College student Chloe Petito, a triple major who balances working 35 hours a week with taking six classes, was recently awarded, for the second time, the retired faculty’s annual scholarship of $1,000 on April 17.
“Flagler has helped my dream of graduating from college with no student loan debt,” she said.
Each year, Flagler’s retired faculty, members of Sociable Association of Satisfied Saints (SASS), hold a luncheon to announce the recipient of its scholarship. Petito is pursuing degrees in Accounting, Finance and Economics while juggling work and taking six 400-level classes, three of which are senior seminar or capstone courses.
“Receiving it (the scholarship) a second time only proves further that the Flagler community wants to help and support other Flagler students to achieve their dreams,” said Petito, who graduates this fall.
During Monday’s luncheon, President Dr. William T. Abare, Jr., also recognized the many contributions of retired faculty members and their efforts in helping to establish the college. Incoming Flagler College President Dr. Joseph Joyner was also in attendance.
The SASS scholarship is open to any student with a superior grade point average and financial need, regardless of rank or major field of study. To see photos of the scholarship luncheon, visit here.
