Region 1 - Panhandle of Florida
Dear Region I,
What a privilege it is to serve as your Representative for 2014-2015. I want to thank those who voted. I appreciate your willingness to support me, a virtual unknown in the financial aid community.
You should know - I take this position with great expectations for myself and all of my Region 1, colleagues. A truly successful program is only possible with the support of dedicated professionals who are willing to be involved in the process. I trust we are those professionals.
My journey with financial aid began 13 years ago when I became a member of the Florida State University staff family. I am a “Nole” – Seminole, that is, receiving the majority of my higher education from this fine institution. Can you feel the bias? But no worries, I’m a strong supporter of all of Florida’s institutions of higher learning.
Training has been the cornerstone of this position, well of FASFAA for that matter, as it should be, and I want to continue the tradition of providing information that is relevant to the needs of financial aid administrators therefore; with your help, we can insure training needs are met and exceed set goals.
One last thing and this is important to me, I believe in recognition for work done on behalf of the Region. There are a plethora of issues and projects you can become associated with. Should you decide to take on a task, I want to be sure you are recognized for your efforts, so please, let me know your thoughts. Tell me where you feel you can make a difference. Volunteer for a committee, be a Chair and let your light shine so we all can see.
I look forward to the years ahead and with you by my side, everything is possible.
