Shane Gillen, the Pasco County Sunshine State Scholar, was honored Thursday at the Double Tree Hotel in Orlando. Each school district selects its top 11th grade student for this honor. Pictured with Shane are his Calculus teacher Mr. Griffith and Florida Education Commissioner Tony Bennett. Mr. Griffith spoke to Mr. Bennett before the event and told him that he and Mr. Bennett are from the same town in Indiana, and during his speech Mr. Bennett acknowledged Mr. Griffith, thanking him and all of the teachers for being an inspiration to the students.
