Torchbearer 100 recognizes the most outstanding students who have made a significant impact on student life at FSU due to their service and leadership. The Torchbearer 100 showcases the idea that as an individual grows, their potential grows with them. This growth creates avenues for an exponential positive impact on their communities.

CCI students who are being inducted this year are: Cali Berenis, Bella Bozied, Maya Calderon, Ellie Helgeson, Allison Janvier, Catherine Marshall, Allison Matula, Mia Nicholson, and Leah Solomon.

The inductees are involved in a variety of organizations across campus such as Her Campus, Panhellenic, Engage 100, Dance Marathon, Order of Omega, Student Alumni Association, Relay for Life, Light the Night, and many more.

Bella Bozied, a double major in Information, Communication, and Technology and Editing, Writing and Media said, “I am full of pride to be inducted into FSU’s Torchbearer 100 along with so many other great leaders. The application process alone reminded me of how much FSU has brought to me, and how much I continue to want to give back.”

Leah Solomon said, “The opportunity to join a network of the top 100 leaders at Florida State University excited me, as I saw the potential to create valuable connections.
