“Attending the Flagler PAD program was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Not only was I able to achieve my personal goal of earning a college degree, it has helped to advance my career and bolster my professional status. I found that the PAD schedule made it easy for me to attend while still working full time and taking care
of my family.”
