Florida Technical College continues to invest in Central Florida, following its commitment to educational excellence in our region. This Thursday, FTC celebrated its Lakeland campus expansion and renovation with a community reception and ribbon cutting ceremony. Campus President, John Buck, said the improved facilities are a testament to the college’s dedication to make education accessible to all and commitment to sink deeper roots in this community. “FTC is committed to Central Florida because we recognize that a well-trained workforce is the key to keeping the area’s economy bustling,” Buck said. “Central Florida truly is an important economic engine to the state and we are proud to be doing our part to keep it that way.” The expansion adds nearly 1800-square-foot to the campus, which is home to more than 300 students pursuing two and four year degrees, as well as diploma programs, in areas like criminal justice, business and marketing, and allied health care. Florida Technical College has three more campuses in Central Florida and two others in South Florida.
