NEWS-PRESS: Guest opinion: Southwest Florida, it’s time to elevate!

By November 11, 2020 News

We seek to elevate the knowledge base and earning potential of our workforce which will lead to more productive and profitable businesses. To many of us working at the oldest local institution of higher education, Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW), we believe this stretch goal is achievable through education.

As a partner in the prestigious Lumina Foundation in partnership with the Kresge Foundation, Southwest Florida has been designated as a TALENT HUB — one of only 25 other designated communities in the United States who have a demonstrated plan for significantly increasing the number of people with college degrees or other credentials beyond a high school diploma.
