Florida College System - Student of the Month
As a DSC student, John Markham is pursuing an Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree. Markham is a leader in emergency preparedness programs and activities, is an Eagle Scout, and has served on the FEMA Emergency Council. Additionally, Markham serves his community through volunteering for the W.T. Bland Library in Mount Dora, participating in conservation-related projects at Camp LeNoche, and assisting with a landscaping service project at Camp Challenge. Markham earned the James M. Stewart Citizenship Award for exemplifying characteristics necessary to live the life of a good citizen. 

Markham currently has a 4.0 GPA at DSC. After earning his A.A. degree, Markham plans on transferring to the University of Central Florida to complete his pre-med program and medical school training. Markham plans on becoming a medical doctor serving the healthcare needs of Floridians. Demonstrating his commitment to help better the community, Markham has mentored other students with the development of their writing and math skills. 

Not only does he help through his mentoring services but also has shown to be a youth leader outside of the classroom. Markham has raised awareness for emergency preparedness in Lake County and developed a countywide emergency preparedness awareness program that involved delivering speeches to community leaders and developing a social media campaign. He has inspired and motivated other youth to also serve in the community.
