“The Florida Technical College Family sends its love, prayers and deepest condolences to the people of Puerto Rico in the wake of a 6.4 earthquake and subsequent aftershocks. We stand with each and every one of you in this time of great trial. Our commitment to Puerto Rico is unshakable. It is home to our parent organization NUC, as well as to many of our students, faculty, and staff’s families. The recent events only strengthen our resolve to stand with Puerto Rico and to lend a hand in this moment of need in any way we can.
To our Puerto Rican students and to those in the communities we serve with ties to the island, know that we are closely monitoring the situation and are preparing to help people who may seek refuge in Central Florida after the earthquake. We vow to keep you updated through this process. In the meantime, let’s make an effort to remain calm. Together, we will see this through.”
– FTC President Dr. James Michael Burkett
