Times-Union Editor Frank Denton takes a turn at what he knows is the REAL FSCJ story--you now, the one about the eager, hard-working students and caring faculty members.
Frank Denton: The better FSCJ story
"This is the story of the real Florida State College at Jacksonville, where eager, hardworking students can take affordable advantage of caring faculty members to build their lives, often through great adversity.
Last week at Veterans Memorial Arena, almost 7,000 of them received degrees or certificates, including 530 bachelor’s degrees and 4,978 associate (two-year) degrees.
Over the past year or two, while our journalists were investigating and reporting on the excesses and mismanagement of some executives at FSCJ — several of whom are now history — those students were hitting the books, sprinting from part-time jobs to their classes, fueled by ambitions and dreams."
