PHSC strives to honor and recognize students for accomplishments related to performances in groups in the following ways:

Outstanding Club Member

Each year, each active club and organization may select one of their members as an “Outstanding Club Member”. This individual is presented an award at the Annual Distinguished Alumni and Student Life and Leadership award Ceremony. 

Dr. Felisha Barker Outstanding Student Leader of the Year Award

Each year, several students on each campus are recognized as “Outstanding Student leaders” for their contributions to their campus, but have also contributed significantly toward new programs, activities, and college committees as a student member. 

Service Awards

The Student Life and Leadership office recognizes the club that has participated the most in organized community service activities, and turned in proof of these activities to the Student Life and Leadership coordinators. 

Veteran Student Life and Leadership Exemplary Service Award

Pasco-Hernando State College recognizes and values the sacrifices members of our military have made for our country, state and local community. Veteran students bring experiences with them to college—inside the classroom and out. To honor our veteran students the Veteran Student Life and Leadership Exemplary Service Award was created.

This award recognizes the contributions of the veterans in our campus communities. This service includes their active engagement in the planning and implementation of campus events and activities, in clubs and organizations, and in campus life. 

Five Star Award

Each year clubs are given the opportunity to be awarded the Five Star Award. This award is given to clubs based on five categories of the criteria.

Advisor Gifts

Each year our club/organization advisors are presented with an advisor gift by the Student Life & Leadership office. The gift is a recognition of their time and effort and is presented at the Annual Award Ceremony. If your club wishes to give a gift to your advisor please do so at the award ceremony. Time will not be given as part of the award ceremony. No exceptions will be made.

Other Club Awards

Clubs and organizations may also recognize their officers, members and advisors with other awards. These types of awards must be purchased with the club/organization’s fund raising account and can be presented at a club meeting but not at the Annual Distinguished Alumni and Student Award Ceremony.
