Herbert W. Scheidel Community Leadership in Action Award

Herbert W. Scheidel Leadership in Action Award

The Leadership in Action Award is a yearly scholarship funded by the Schleidel family. The Leadership in Action award was established to continue the legacy of Herbert W. Scheidel, by recognizing and encouraging emerging leaders within the Jacksonville community who go above and beyond to positively impact the lives of others. This recognition will be awarded annually to a currently enrolled student of Florida State College at Jacksonville who has taken action to expand the opportunities of those who are less fortunate by volunteering with exceptional service to a single community nonprofit agency in the Florida State College at Jacksonville service area.

Nominated students must have been enrolled at Florida State College at Jacksonville and seeking a degree or certificate during the time in which the volunteer service was performed. Candidates are selected through a nomination process and self-nomination is allowed.


  1. A one-page description of the nominee’s contribution to the agency (including hours volunteered) and why you feel the nominee is deserving of the award.
  2. Please include the volunteer hours completed per semester, while enrolled at FSCJ.
  3. A letter of support from the nonprofit agency.
  4. An unofficial Florida State College at Jacksonville transcript.

Nomination Due Date: Feb. 18, 2016
