FORT PIERCE — This year, 13 high-achieving Indian River State College (IRSC) students were selected to the 2021 All-Florida Academic team for their academic achievements, leadership and service to the community.

“Each year, exceptional IRSC students are chosen to be part of the All-Florida Academic Team—which is a huge accomplishment in and of itself,” stated Rochelle Popp-Finch, IRSC Director of Student Development/Ombudsman. “We love to celebrate their achievements, both in and out of the classroom. The best part about our students is how they love to give back, whether it is to the College or our local community, all while maintaining spectacular grades.”
IRSC recipients include Alyssa Carter of Vero Beach; Christian Salguero of Palm City; Edward Teran, Jennifer Palmatier, Maria Hernandez Lopez, Lillian Demaris and Sarah Pamer of Port St. Lucie; Jan Hobbs of Hobe Sound; Joy Jarriel of Okeechobee; Justin Sanchez of Riviera Beach; Mallory Rooney of Jacksonville; Natalie Carlton of Stuart; and Erifylli Maroutsou of Greece.
“Saying we are proud of these students is an understatement. Their dedication to academics, leadership and the community is truly inspiring,” shared Dr. Timothy Moore, IRSC President. “These students give their all in class, to their IRSC peers and to local organizations. We are honored to have them represent the College as All-Florida Academic Team members.”
