A Time to Celebrate Polk State – Canceled

Given the extremely bleak outlook that Polk State had of the very real possibility that we were going to have to close both Centers in Lake Wales, decrease access to students and lay off employees due to Governor Scott’s $3 million veto of the College budget, President Holden felt it was not a time for celebration and cancelled the event.  Thankfully advocacy made all difference, however the event is still cancelled. If you would still like to donate at your comfort level to the Dr. Eileen Holden Emergency Endowed Scholarship to pay tribute to Dr. Holden for her passionate servant leadership, please click here. We will also be presenting her with a special book of appreciation messages from donors to Dr. Holden upon her retirement.  The deadline for inclusion in the book is July 14.
