FSU Panama City
Less than two years after creating an innovative automotive parts business, Florida State University alumnus Tyler Montgomery has been recognized with one of Florida’s highest honors for business owners — the Governor’s Young Entrepreneur Award.
FSU Panama City will host “Fast to the Future,” a speed career exploration event for students, Wednesday, March 8. Fashioned after speed dating, the event will provide students a brief exposure to a variety of career options in nine-minute intervals. Students from any major and all prospective college students are welcome.
FSU Panama City will offer a new bachelor’s degree program in commercial entrepreneurship beginning fall 2017. The program, which is housed under Florida State’s Jim Moran School of Entrepreneurship, will prepare tomorrow’s entrepreneurs for the difficult financial, ethical, legal and global competitive challenges of the future.
Because of a recent gift totaling almost $1 million, FSU Panama City will be able to award at least 20 new $2,000 scholarships in fall 2018. The $932,000 estate of Earldine Ankiewicz will fund the Alex Alfred Ankiewicz and Lucy Elizabeth Ankiewicz Scholarship Endowment, benefitting enrolled in majors within the College of Business or College of Education.
