FSCJ to Host Business Speaker Series Event on Navigating Student Loan Debt

WHAT:           As part of the Business Speaker Series, Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ) will host “Navigating Student Loan Debt: A Collective Approach to Tackling the Crisis,” with Financial Health Network Senior Manager Brenton Peck.

                        Leading projects focused on improving people’s financial health, Mr. Peck thrives on opportunities to engage leading institutions on the forefront of financial health, including top-tier banks and credit unions, colleges and universities, next-generation digital platforms and national nonprofits. He has held positions at the Filene Research Institute, J.P. Morgan Chase and Wells Fargo. He has an MBA from the Dunham School of Business at Aurora University and a Bachelor of Science in Marketing from Illinois State University.

The Business Speaker Series was made possible by a $250,000 commitment from First Florida Credit Union to support initiatives that will help local students and community members become future business leaders.
