Yolanda Woody Named Outstanding SCF, Manatee-Sarasota Graduate

(Bradenton, Fla., Dec. 15, 2017) —  State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) honored Yolanda D. Woody with its Outstanding Graduate Award. Woody graduated Friday, Dec. 15, with her Associate in Arts degree. To be named an Outstanding Graduate, graduates must have shown superior leadership, academic achievement and community service while attending SCF. 

As a senior in high school, Woody interned with the Sarasota County Public Defender’s office. That experience and her community service inspired her to want to help people in need. She plans to transfer to USF Sarasota-Manatee to pursue a bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary social science and attend law school afterward.

She volunteers for the American Red Cross disaster team and is known as a calm and professional leader who never has trouble making her deadlines. In classes, she takes on extra assignments and projects. She has volunteered for All Faiths Food Bank, the Techno Teens Program in the Sarasota County libraries and Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. She also serves as secretary/treasurer for SCF’s Student Government Association.

She hopes to eventually work as a human rights lawyer.
