The Seminole Torchbearers is an organization comprised of Florida State University students and alumni who are exceptional leaders. A Seminole Torchbearer carries on the Legacy of Leadership – the sum total of the difference that a leader makes in people’s lives – that was acquired while attending Florida State University. It is this leadership legacy that is the foundation upon which our great university was built and is exemplified by a Seminole Torchbearer.
The Seminole Torchbearers in 1986 began formally recognizing those alumni who were student leaders during their time on campus. Since then, over 5,500 alums have been inducted into this prestigious group. Today, under the direction of Vice President for Student Affairs, Dr. Amy Hecht, that group has expanded to recognize current students.
