South Florida Veterans Expo
October 30, 2019

Over 150 veterans, military service members and their families came to see more than 40 exhibitors at the South Florida Veterans Expo on Oct. 30, held at the South County Civic Center in Delray Beach. Employers, veterans organizations, schools and government agencies were on hand to hire and help the attendees in achieving their life and career goals. The expo opened with the Navy Operational Support Center West Palm Beach Color Guard, the national anthem sung by Jillian Flaherty, and welcome remarks by PBSC President Ava L. Parker, J.D., and former state Senator Maria Sachs, J.D. The free event was hosted by PBSC and Sachs, a champion of veterans, who played a key role in securing state funding for PBSC’s Veterans Success Center on the Lake Worth campus.
