A week that was very involved with FIU.
Dr. Mark B. Rosenberg is the fifth president of Florida International University and former Chancellor of the State University System of Florida.
President Rosenberg was the featured speaker on Thursday, October 1, 2015, before the Palmetto Bay Business Association.
We were updated on the great work of our local State University including the impact specific to Palmetto Bay; from the thousands of graduates to the hundreds of faculty and staff that currently reside within Palmetto Bay.
I am honored to once again take part in the HNBA Mentoring program. This year's kick off was held on Friday, October 2, 2015, at the UM Student Union. I am most impressed by the quality of the law students who participate in this program. Law Students from as far away as UF are participating. Law Students from UM, FIU and St. Thomas are also present. I find this program to benefit me as much as the mentees.

The 2015 kick off event was an opportunity for participating mentors and mentees to meet. Assignments will be made and announced later this month.
It is a wonderful opportunity for me to continue to participate in this outstanding program, being able to give back for the opportunities that I have been afforded.
