Shaping Tomorrow’s Leaders: A Day with the League of Women Voters of Seminole County

Shaping Tomorrow’s Leaders: A Day with the League of Women Voters of Seminole County

Last week, we participated in the South Seminole Academy’s (SSA) Girls in Government Event!

The event was hosted by the League of Women Voters Organization for their annual ‘Girls in Government’ event.

SSA is a magnet school with a focus on leadership, law and advanced studies. The students were hand-selected by their teachers to attend this event based on their strong interest in pursuing government careers.

Students engaged in conversations about women’s right to vote, asked thought provoking questions about the voting process, and had the opportunity to have conversations with guests from the League of Women Voters and SCPS School Board Members, along with Florida Representatives Anna Eskamani and Rachel Plakon.

Both speakers shared their empowering stories and information about their responsibilities as women working in the government.

Representative Eskamani, member of the Florida House of Representatives from the 42nd district discussed her upbringing as a Florida native from a culturally diverse background. She encouraged the young women by stating, “Always lead with grace, grit, but don’t forget who you are. Be yourself. Don’t try to fit in a box and be someone you’re not. That’s the strongest you that you could be. Anything is possible, if someone like me can do this, you can too!”

Representative Plakon who currently serving for the 36th district added that her challenge was having a child during her primary, but her dreams of working in government did not stop! She encourages women to never stop chasing their dreams, and to be an advocate. “Don’t put your dreams hold because tough times will not last forever. Women have inner grit. I encourage you to keep on doing the right thing, like what you see in the mirror, and believe in yourself.”

Dr. Lynnette Gonzalez, Instructional Coach and Magnet Facilitator who helped to organize and lead this event said, “I hope the students see themselves represented with the leaders here today and hope this can empower them to reach their goals and understand there is a need for women to speak out and be part of the decision-making process in this country. I hope they leave this event inspired and ready to lead!”

Easter Egg Hunt 2023 Winter Springs, Florida

Easter Egg Hunt 2023 Winter Springs, Florida

The annual Egg Hunt tradition at Central Winds Park was a hopping good time for all who attended! Children ranging in age from 2 to 12 brought their baskets and participated in a park-wide egg hunt with fun and prizes for everyone. It was truly an egg-citing event!

The highlight of the day was the special golden egg, which held a big surprise for the lucky child who found it. With advanced registration required, the event was well-organized and accommodated the largest number of people possible by dividing the egg hunt into age ranges and time slots.

Winter Springs residents were able to participate for free, making it an accessible event for all families in the community. Overall, it was a wonderful day filled with laughter, joy, and plenty of egg-citement. We can’t wait to see what next year’s Egg Hunt has in store!

Candidate Night Recap

Candidate Night Recap

The afternoon started with a little rain, but the residents still came out and enjoyed the food trucks and community. The Trotwood Park pavilion provided excellent cover. After spending a few hours with the residents, it was time to head over to Tuscawilla Country Club for Meet the Candidate night. It was a fantastic day.  The opportunity to speak with residents of our community is the fuel that powers my campaign.  The things I hear and learn during these events are the very things I will be fighting for when I am elected.  Collaborative leadership is what our city needs right now.

“We need to be a good steward of the land and also our neighbors as far as the school board, and the county and the other municipalities around us, and right now I am not hearing favorable things about our city and they’re begging me to win,” District 2 candidate Victoria Colangelo said.

“Let’s not rip down 100-year-old trees and then plant a tree that’s, you know, a seedling,” she said.
