It is not surprising that both Pasco-Hernando Community College and Saint Leo University are making headlines yet again! Both educational institutions have making strides in developing programs to better equip Pasco County's future workforce with the skills in high demand by companies around the Tampa Bay area.

Pasco-Hernando Community College

Pasco-Hernando Community College is building a beautiful new high-tech campus in Wesley Chapel, Florida. The new campus will offer business and healthcare programs to train workers for jobs in lucrative medical and technology fields while strengthening PHCC’s collaboration with local business and industry. PHCC will soon begin offering four year degree programs and is set to change their name by 2014. Forward Florida recently featured PHCC's ranking among the Top 100 Most Affordable Colleges Online:  

Saint Leo University

It's been an outstanding year for Saint Leo University. The university’s Master of Business Administration degree with a specialization in Sport Business was recently ranked an international leader by the London-based publication Sport Business International. The campus completed its new state of the art residence halls that were featured on Animal Planet's TV show Tanked. Making national news again, Dr. Kirk highlighted the university's programs for veterans on Fox & Friends on a special Veteran's Day episode. Forward Florida recently featured Saint Leo University's latest contribution to helping build Tampa Bay's workforce which includes a new education center with classroom space at the SYKES contact center in Lakeland, Florida: Source: Forward Florida
