Palm Beach Atlantic University is a partner with Complete Florida, an online program specifically for adults who have earned some college credit but stopped out before earning a degree. In Florida, approximately 2.2 million adults have earned some college credit. By 2018, approximately 59 percent of the jobs in Florida will require postsecondary credentials beyond a high school diploma. With this in mind, the State University System of Florida, the Florida College System and the Florida Legislature have made it a priority to increase the percentage of Floridians with a postsecondary credential. Complete Florida addresses this critical gap in our postsecondary landscape, with priority given to veterans and active duty military.

State Sen. Joe Negron (R-Stuart) was true to his word when he promised to keep his remarks brief on Saturday during Palm Beach Atlantic University's spring commencement. Yet though his remarks were brief, Sen. Negron packed a lot of wisdom in three succinct points. Held at the Palm Beach County Convention Center, the afternoon ceremony included a tribute to one of PBA's founding fathers and a posthumous degree presentation to a father of four who met with an untimely death in March.
