At the meet and greet, subcontractors with the Pharmacy School program in Crestview were actively seeking skilled workers for the upcoming renovation of the Alatex building of the FAMU Crestview Educational Center.
“I can’t think of one person who has not been affected by our down economy, no matter what their economic standing is,” said Senator Evers. “Florida needs jobs, our Northwest Florida communities need jobs, and here we are seeing an opportunity for skilled and deserving folks to become employed once again.”
Senator Evers participated in the meet and greet, which was conducted for the purpose of allowing local businesses and elected officials to meet construction contractors with the FAMU Crestview Educational Center and discuss new business opportunities.
“We were given an overview of the whole project and what the center is expected to provide students pursuing a pharmacy degree,” said Senator Evers. “Throughout this project, we will see our friends and neighbors working toward the projected success of students who will benefit from the features of the new center. When completed, I am hopeful the students will emerge with their degrees into a more sound and stable economy.”
