In my professional capacities, I have worked with The Hall’s marketing needs and campaigns during my entire professional tenure of 36 years in SWFL, and I have attended countless Broadway performances, music performances, and comedy performances at The Hall. One of my highest honors was to personally walk Barbara B. Mann herself onto The Hall stage to celebrate her 95th birthday. I know and love the FSW campus well, as my former wife Ronda and son Blake are graduates of Edison State College and FSW, respectively.”
