Ever since she was a little girl, Susan Boyd has dreamed of becoming a nurse. Imagine her delight when she learned that the Florida Nursing Student Association (FNSA) had chosen her for their Leadership Award for FNSA District 8.
Some spent years, some shed blood, sweat, and tears, all gathered memories, and came together for a common purpose–GRADUATION.
The commencement address was given by Daniel Devine, Chairman of the Board and CEO of Compass Knowledge Group. Devine, an entrepreneur, knows what constitutes an effective customer service organization. Nevertheless, he was impressed with the care and treatment his father received during a stay at Florida Hospital. Devine entitled his remarks "Thank You in Advance" and he thanked the graduates for their future service. "You will impact so many lives in so many ways, both large and small, in the years to come," commented Devine.
