During the District Board of Trustees meeting on Monday, October 24, Florida Blue was recognized for their longtime support of Polk State College students. Florida Blue’s purpose is to help people and communities achieve better health. As part of their commitment to their timeless core values, Florida Blue distributes grants to meet local community needs in the areas of Health and Human Services; and Education and Literacy. Polk State College Foundation is honored to have been a recipient of their corporate contributions since 2011. Their gifts have not only assisted students through scholarships, but by also providing a place where students, staff and faculty can improve their health. In 2013, a portion of their funding was used to renovate what is now the Lakeland Wellness Center. Florida Blue believes in “becoming a healthier state together” and their important partnership helps our students become stronger in mind and body which has a rippling effect into our great county.

Thank you Florida Blue for your commitment to  Polk State students.
