SEMINOLE – Jamal Waked, 18, of Seminole was one of only three high school students in the state of Florida, and one of only 105 students in the country to be named among the 2014 Horatio Alger National Scholars.

Waked and his fellow 2014 national scholars were invited to participate in a four-day weekend of activities, roundtables and special sessions in Washington, D.C., April 3-6. The students also received their honors and had an opportunity to meet such leading individuals as Justice Clarence Thomas, entrepreneur and business visionary Sir Richard Branson, and actor Tom Selleck.

Since 1984, Horatio Alger Association Members and Friends have been funding need-based college scholarships to support deserving young people to overcome their adversity and pursue their dreams through higher education. So far the Association has awarded $100 million to approximately 20,000 students.

Waked, born in Panama, relocated to the United States when he was 4. He’s a member of the 2014 graduating class of St. Petersburg High School. He’ll be attending the University of Florida in Gainesville in the fall to pursue a career in engineering and the sciences.
