“There should be no question in your mind that those late nights, that hard work and all those sacrifices were 100 percent worth it. This degree is part of finding your piece of the American Dream.
“Here in the Tampa Bay area and throughout the state, we’re seeing an explosion of growth and opportunity yet again. If we continue down this path, we’ll see hundreds of thousands of jobs created right here in our state.
