Mark Logas Receives the Lake-Sumter State College Distinguished Alumni Scholar Award

A Message from Wendy Givoglu, Interim President, East and Winter Park Campuses

Political Science Professor Mark Logas has been selected as the recipient of the Lake-Sumter State College (LSSC) Distinguished Alumni Scholar Award. This award honors LSSC alumni who make a difference in the local community, and they must be a current or former LSSC student, faculty or staff member whose noteworthy accomplishments impacted the advancement of LSSC.

The awards committee selected Mark for his commitment to immerse his students in real-world experiences by attending a city council or county commission meeting, or a session of traffic court. Additionally, Mark has taught free government classes to homeschooling groups and helped the Boy Scouts of America by teaching badge specific classes.

Mark was honored during an awards banquet that took place on Thursday, October 17, 2019. As a surprise, one of Mark’s first professors at LSSC, Debra Dabney, was invited to attend the event after learning that Mark had shared during an interview that she had made a tremendously positive impact on his academic career. Debra was a health and fitness instructor for almost 40 years, and served as the faculty advisor for Student Government Association. Mark was totally surprised to see Debra and spent time reminiscing about their time at LSSC.

A little trivia about Mark: He was elected Student Government President at Lake-Sumter 37 years ago.

Congratulations, Mark!
