Each year FAPSC opens nominations to the general membership to honor colleagues in the career college sector. These awards are annouced at our annual conference. This year our conference was held in Hollywood, Florida on July 13-16, 2010. Since some of you did not get a chance to attend this event we will highlight an award winner each month in our e-Flash.
This month we will highlight our Admissions Administrator of the Year, Tina Shontz from Everest University, Tampa
Tina has a zeal for helping students and a sparkling, supportive personality. She has a listening ear for students and goes the extra mile, such as arranging temporary housing for a student she discovered was homeless. Tina constantly uplifts others with her contagious sense of humor, and uses “outside-the-box” thinking to help others with their problems. She believes in the career-oriented mission of Everest University, the value of private schools and helping students reach their goal.

FAPSC Members Le Cordon Bleu, Orlando & Miami campuses and Keiser University were featured in Florida Trend's September 2010 magazine.
The Machon restaurant has all the trappings of a fine restaurant — a gleaming, mosaic-tiled dining room, white tablecloth-treatment and stylish Jens Risom chairs. Its large, modern kitchen is staffed by 12 to 18 chefs, one sporting a tall toque creased on top in the grand European style.
But what sets Machon apart from others is that it’s the working classroom of a culinary school, part of Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts, a sprawling complex of classrooms and kitchens far removed from tourist Orlando. At night by candlelight, you’d never know you’re in an office park. Read more.
