Lieutenant Governor Nuñez was a guest speaker during our Future Goals Series as she shared insight and valuable knowledge with our Patriot Scholars and National Honor Society students concerning a future career in government and politics.
Lieutenant Governor Nuñez’ connection with Florida Christian School began when two of her children attended and then recently graduated from FCS. We were very excited for her to return on-campus as she communicated priceless insight and wisdom with our next generation of Patriots. During her panel discussion, she shared more about her experience as an FCS parent and the value of Christian education.
