The Florida Association of Governmental Fleet Administrators (FLAGFA) recently presented a $2,500 scholarship gift to a Palm Beach State College  Automotive and Diesel Service Technology student as part of the association’s ongoing commitment to the industry.

Tim Calhoun, CAFM, fleet director for Palm Beach County Fire Rescue, presented Palm Beach State College with the check on Jan. 29. This is the second half of FLAGFA’s $5,000 scholarship gift, and FLAGFA provides the college as well as five other state colleges with scholarships at regular intervals.

FLAGFA’s goal is to raise awareness of the career paths offered in government fleet services. As past president of FLAGFA, Calhoun presented the check on behalf of its current president, Sean Williams.

The scholarship check went to Mireya Gonzalez. She graduates from the Automotive Service Technology program next month and has already accepted a position at a local auto service center.
