It is impressive what the Florida CCIM West Coast District has been able to accomplish. I will tell you, as the former president of the CCIM Foundation, whose primary responsibility is for the distribution of scholarships throughout the entire CCIM organization, and for a state or especially a district, that to be able to give seven scholarships in one year is awe-inspiring. I am incredibly proud of our district. I was most honored to have awarded my scholarship to Joseph Brown. His impeccable qualifications, with over 35 years in public education as a principal and teacher in Hillsborough County, are truly impressive. He was most deserving of the scholarship that was in my name.”
