Rachel Whitehead Graduates


With extreme pride, the Whitehead Family announces the upcoming graduation of Rachel Whitehead from Florida Southern College on December 17, 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education.

A “beach kid,” Rachel grew up on San Carlos Island, attending Beach School, and graduating from Cypress Lake High School in 2012. Once in college, Rachel immersed herself in college life and took an active role in many clubs and activities, especially Campus Ministries.

Rachel is already teaching a 5th grade STEM class at Carlton Palmore Elementary School in Lakeland, where she completed her student teaching and internship. Having gained full time employment before even walking across the stage to accept her diploma has made her entire family very proud.

Commencement will take place at Florida Southern College where the extended family, including many relatives from Colorado will attend with huge smiles and hearts full of pride!

The entire Beach Community can take pride in the fact that our community raises some pretty awesome kids.
