Career Development Program recognizes employer partners

Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind communications director Miki Gilloon informed local Historic City News reporters that, on May 30, employers and business partners who participate in the “Career Development Program” will be recognized for their contributions to the vocational education of students at the state school.
