Congratulations to Sara Varela, Broward College, selected as the Florida College System Activities Association Publications Division Student of the Month for May.
Here’s what Sara shared with us: “I've been editor-in-chief of the Observer for two years, and I've been recognized with three writing awards from the Florida College System Press Association, including First Place for General Column in 2017. I'm also the first community college student to be accepted and participate in the POLITICO Journalism Institute, which is a two-week program in Washington, D.C., where I wrote one story published by POLITICO.com accompanied by a 2-minute video that I produced, shot, and edited myself (https://www.politico.com/
