'The Interns' move to third task in Santa Fe Community College competition

Morgan Miller, Big Red team member, walked into a conference room expecting to be disappointed.

"The Big Red team had a lot of problems when it came down to it," said Lillian Guevara-Castro, features editor at The Gainesville Sun. "Their work reflected the difficulties they faced with technology, which is ultimately why they were eliminated."

Guevara-Castro made the second elimination Monday for the SFCC contest "The Interns," which incorporates teamwork with weekly tasks. SFCC's Student Government and the Student Advocacy Network joined together three years ago to create the contest.

Each team consists of four SFCC students, and each member of the winning team will receive a scholarship for 12 credits at SFCC, as well as an internship that corresponds with their discipline.

Guevara-Castro said the Bomb Squad team articulated its concept clearly and effectively.

"We were honored to hear such praise about our work because we put our hearts and souls into this task," said Bomb Squad member Gustavo Moran, 19.

Guevara-Castro said her decision was based on the design, construction and reporting of a newspaper page, which was filled with articles and images about local workforce issues.

The third task of the contest, hosted by North Florida Regional Medical Center, was announced at the end of the elimination ceremony.

The teams will propose a curriculum for Gainesville High School's Academy of Health Professionals, which educates and certifies students in different health-related fields, said Laurie Welch, director of human resources at North Florida Regional Medical Center.

A local business hosts each task, which will relate to one of the major disciplines, said Ben Anderson, SFCC Student Government president.

Following a fourth elimination, the winning team will be decided at the closing ceremony, Anderson said.
