About our Spirit of FAPSC 2016 Recipients
Share |

Dr. Jay Ober,  was nominated for his tireless efforts on the sector’s behalf to improve nursing program outcomes. One of the few from the sector that regularly attends the Florida Board of Nursing Meetings, he built a relationship with state regulatory of mutual respect and trust. He made dozens of visits to schools, other than those he is paid to assist, to review nursing programs and render free advice, allowing improvement of nursing programs.

Jay is one who is always putting the student first. He volunteers at every FAPSC event and has organized and coordinated many of the FAPSC regional and nursing events.

Dr. Connie Duke, has been sharing her talents and innovative ideas with the Continuing Education Committee for over 8 years. She is equipped with a passion for education and a methodology of thinking outside the box. Dr. Duke has developed some of the most engaging faculty development conference and workshop topics. She actively volunteers at FAPSC events and is dedicated to the support of the organization’s initiatives.


Peter Crocitto, a past president and long-time leader in the sector has continually insured that high standards exist for all of our sector schools.  Having served not only on FAPSC' board for many years, he has also served the community by serving on the Commission for Independent Education.  Peter has worked hard to make sure that the FAPSC Golf Tournament, named for a former Keiser University employee, Jay Lambeth, remains a key part of our annual conference.
Melissa Wade, a former past president and one of the longest serving members of the board has been a driving force since FAPSC began regularly holding annual conferences behind the selection and evaluation of conference presenters.  She, with Peter Crocitto, has annually insured that the FAPSC Golf Tournament is a productive and pleasant time of celebrating our sectors success.

Ophelia Sanchez, owner of Miami Regional University, has stepped in many times to insure that students of Nursing, who have been left with less than optimal opportunities by their closing or struggling institutions, had options to complete their education and prosper.  Such assistance has often come at the expense of her institution.  Miami Regional University has been free with its space for FAPSC and community organizations.  Ophelia demonstrates what it means to be a "team player."
