Pensacola State College student Jordan Caldwell had a plate of food, but it wasn’t too full.
“If I eat too much, I’ll get tired and pass out,’’ the computer science major said. “I want to do well. I’m so nervous.”
Caldwell was one of many PSC students who were treated to a pancake breakfast Monday morning ─ courtesy of the Office of Student Engagement and Leadership with assistance from the Culinary Department which helped prepare the food along with volunteers.
The breakfast served in the Student Center on the Pensacola campus was to help nourish students during final exams this week. There were similar breakfasts on the Warrington and Milton campuses as well as the Century and South Santa Rosa centers.
And despite being billed as “pancake breakfasts” there was more food as the Culinary Department and volunteers cooked up scrambled eggs, sausage and crispy bacon.
“We’re doing this to support our students with a nice warm breakfast because we want them to do very well,’’ said Keyaundra Mobley, Student Engagement and Leadership coordinator. “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.”
