Region 1 - Panhandle of Florida


Hello Region I!

Shana Gore recently accepted a new financial aid position outside of Florida. Shana did an excellent job as Region I representative, and I, along with everyone else, wish her good luck.

After Shana’s announcement, President Lovett asked me to fill in for her until the Region I representative term expires in 2021. I was honored to have been called upon and graciously accepted his request. Accordingly, I’ll be serving as Region I representative until June 30th.

I’m still getting caught up on everything that FASFAA plans on offering over the next few months, but don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
