FAC and UF/IFAS have once again partnered with Leadership Florida to provide a $5,000 scholarship through FACTOR for an ACC Alumni to participate in the Annual Leadership Florida class.  Each year, between 40 and 70 applicants from a variety of professions, philosophies, and parts of the state are chosen to participate in a stimulating and thought-provoking nine-month educational program that consists of five two and three-day sessions held in cities throughout the state.  These sessions include programming on issues critical to Florida, leadership skills assessment and training, and relevant information on Florida's history, demography, diversities, and opportunities.

This year, Commissioner Cyndi Stevenson from St. Johns County is the scholarship recipient.  Congratulations Commissioner Stevenson!  We are very excited for you and know you will represent the Florida Association of Counties well.
