“As Floridians, we have a special understanding of what our friends and neighbors in Texas and Louisiana are experiencing. In the upcoming months, Floridians will continue to offer support to those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Our thoughts are with everyone impacted by this historic storm.

I would like to take a moment to thank the first responders, local officials, and all those who are rescuing individuals stranded by floods, offering shelter and support, and doing all they can to offer help.

In preparation for students and families who may relocate to our area during the disaster recovery, Lake-Sumter State College is ready to support them in their higher education efforts. We have set up a resource page at LSSC.edu/Harvey for additional information.”
