Perspectives: Private Help for Public Education

Tomand four guests in fm lobby

The business community has supported local schools since forever.  But that help is now more critical than ever.  To give some examples on how those partnerships are working in the Tallahassee area are: Catie Goodman, Director of Tallahassee Community College’s Career Center;  Heather Mitchell, TCC Vice President for Institutional Advancement and executive director of the TCC Foundation; Pam Butler, CEO of Aegis Business Technologies, which is a major TCC supporter; and Tony Brown, general manager of Alsco, a south Tallahassee firm that has “adopted” nearby Pineview and Oak Ridge elementary schools.
