A Message from Kathleen Plinske, President, Osceola, Lake Nona and Poinciana Campuses
On Monday, June 12, 2017, our students organized a moving ceremony to remember and honor the victims of Pulse.
As part of the ceremony, 49 flowering plants were planted in the Peace-Pollinator Garden behind Building 1.
In addition, seven boulders have been installed in the garden in remembrance of the seven Valencia students who lost their lives during the tragedy. A walking path has been constructed, and benches will soon be added to create a quiet, reflective space on campus for students, faculty, staff and visitors.
A special thanks to the Peace and Justice Institute, the Grounds, Campus Operations, Sustainability and Student Development teams, and the faculty, staff and students who worked on the design and creation of the Peace-Pollinator Garden.
Thank you for creating such a beautiful and touching memorial on campus.
