Success Spotlight

Tom Bexley

“Gaining my degree in Public Administration from Flagler College is one of the best things I've ever done for myself. It was not out of the ordinary for me to learn something in class one night and use it the next day on the job. Not only has my degree given me the tools necessary to reach my current position, but will hopefully help propel me to the next level when I run for public office in 2 years.”
