Congratulations to one of the sweetest young ladies I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with for the past 13 years!
I toured Everbank stadium today with the FSCJ retirees' group. I looked at millions of dollars invested in a "thing" for people to have fun. I heard about hundreds of millions of dollars spent to buy a team and pay them hundreds of millions more to entertain people. And I wondered in the end who all those millions were actually helping? I think you have done much more already to help build a future we want to live in than all the millions spent on a football team. - Former Colleague
One of the most profound things I've heard is that when we look at education, we must realize that potential is distributed equally but opportunity is not. My high school guidance counselor and Dual Enrollment Coordinator helped students reach their full potential by creating opportunity in a community where receiving a good education would have not been possible otherwise. - Former student
Congratulations Ms. Naita! You've truly been one of EC's biggest supporters and we are so blessed to have a woman like you to set high goals for us while simultaneously pushing us to be the best students we can be. You are amazing! - Former Student
