Please plan to join Last Stand at the 2018 annual meeting as we celebrate successes of the past year and look forward to the coming year’s challenges. The meeting begins at 6:00pm on Tuesday January 16th at The Studios of Key West, 533 Eaton Street with a short business session and highlights of 2017. The featured speaker, Dr. Patrick Rice, Dean of Business & Marine Science at Florida Keys Community College will present an overview of the science and technology degree programs at the college. Admission is free and is open to members and the general public. Light refreshments will be served.
The Community College is an outstanding resource for high school graduates as well as Florida Keys residents interested in preparing for employment opportunities in ecotourism, diving, marine mammal behavior and training, aquaculture and environmental technology. We’re happy to help spread the word about FKCC degrees and life-long learning programs.
“In addition to our courses, FKCC faculty is conducting significant research that is made possible by our unique location. Graduates in the Marine Science program have continued at our partner universities to earn Bachelor’s degrees and beyond” said Dr. Rice.
Formed in 1987, this will be the 30th Annual Meeting for Last Stand. The board represents Last Stand members by frequently commenting on quality of life impacts and environmental issues at city and county meetings. “We are more effective when we represent a larger group throughout the Florida Keys. Memberships are available at our web site: www.keyslaststand.org or you can sign up at the meeting” said Mark Songer, Board President.
Last Stand has been formed to promote, preserve and protect the quality of life in Key West, the Florida Keys and their environs, with a particular emphasis on the natural environment.
