A FLORIDA GOVERNOR REMEMBERED


It was March 28, 2000 and Sherilyn (Lightcap) Pickels of Madison, Florida was being inducted into the Florida State University chapter of the Phi Kappa Phi honor society. She was a junior at the time and was surprised to find the former Florida governor Ruebin Askew at the ceremony. She discovered that he was president of the FSU Phi Kappa Phi chapter and their national president. He was found to be a very warm and personable individual who circulated through the crowd to make contact with each new member giving them encouragement to continue their academic journey and use their talents for the good of their communities. He showed the characteristics of being sincere and genuine with each one with whom he spoke. Condolences to the family on the loss of such a well respected public servant.

Sherilyn Pickels is currently the Assistant County Coordinator for Madison County, Florida.
