Palm Beach State College had the honor of presenting its Presidential Honors College Scholarship, a two-year scholarship worth $6,000 per academic year, to Elena Tomasas Flores during a scholarship ceremony hosted by The Scholastic Achievement Foundation of Palm Beach County at The Breakers Hotel on Tuesday, April 2.

The event was attended by The School District of Palm Beach County Superintendent Michael Burke and several high school principals, who recognized the outstanding achievements of their students.

Tomasas Flores, a senior from Lake Worth High School and a current PBSC Early Admission student, boasts a 3.75 GPA and will earn 25 credit hours toward an Associate in Arts degree after the Spring 2024 semester. She plans to pursue a major in psychology.

In addition to her academic achievements, Tomasas Flores is a dedicated afterschool tutor, assisting students who have recently relocated to the United States in learning English. She is also an active member of the Spanish National Honor Society, organizing programs to promote cultural awareness of diverse Spanish cultures.
