On September 9, the University of Florida College of Health & Human Performance gathered to celebrate outstanding student scholars and thank donors for their support. 

This year's convocation took place in the Alligator Alley at the Florida Gym and was the first in-person scholarship convocation celebration in three years. The college recognized its generous donors and highly deserving scholars. 

The event began with a performance by Accent A Capella, a UF student singing group. They performed a Gator-themed parody of the song "For the Longest Time."

With the support of the college's donors, the scholarship committee awarded 90 scholarships, six of which were new this year.
