Santa Fe College Coordinator of the Academic Advisement Center, Thomas Beckwith, was honored as a “Best of State” winner by the Florida Academic Advising Association (FLACADA) for his session at the 2021 FLACADA conference entitled “The Benefits and Challenges of Being a Black Male Academic Advisor in an era where Black Lives Matter.” 

“Thomas has continued to show why SF stands for ‘Students First,’” SF Vice President for Student Affairs, Dr. Naima Brown said. “His dedication to our students, his innovative approach toward serving students, and his constant focus on the network of support our students need is what makes him invaluable to our team and is one of the reasons why our students excel both in the classroom and in their careers.” 

FLACADA serves as a statewide network of advisors, counselors, and faculty who work to enrich the educational development of students. FLACADA’s national partner, the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA), named Beckwith to its Emerging Leaders list earlier this year
