Everglades University and AeroStar Training Services are celebrating their new partnership. EU and AeroStar have signed an articulation agreement to allow students who have successfully earned FAA certificates to easily transfer those certificates for college credit into Everglades University’s Bachelor of Science Degree with a Major in Aviation/Aerospace. This articulation agreement provides many future opportunities for collaboration to improve employment prospects for EU a…nd AeroStar students, as well as help support the aviation industry worldwide.

AeroStar, based in Kissimmee, Florida, uses a uniquely conceived training program that can guide students with no flight experience to being commercial pilots in as little as 12 to 18 months. AeroStar also offers state-of-the-art flight simulators that can allow students to become type-rated in the Airbus A320 and Boeing 737, two of the most commonly used commercial aircraft in the world.

Everglades University signatories were President and Chief Executive Officer Kristi Mollis, and Vice President of Academic Affairs, Jared Bezet. AeroStar was represented at the signing by their Chief Executive Officer, Deidra Toye, Chief Training Officer, Captain David Santo, and Director of Admissions, P. Jerry Lee.

The Crockett Foundation – a Broward County-based non-profit organization – has positively impacted the lives of thousands of children since its inception in 2002. Everglades University hosted a campus day event on Tuesday, July 17, 2019 to enhance their learning abilities. What a great day it was, as over 100 students were able to attend various workshops that provided team building activities in the alternative medicine, aviation, construction, and business field. We were honored to have the Crockett Foundation at our university and look forward to working with them again in the future!

The Everglades University team participated in a special premier of the Place of Hope’s documentary “Invisible.” Invisible is a documentary exposing the epidemic of human trafficking that is happening right here in our own back yard. Human trafficking is a form of modern slavery where people profit from the control of exploitation of others. Human trafficking is not only an oversees issue. Florida ranks 3rd in the nation for reported cases of human trafficking.

Place of Hope is working hard to educate young adults and parents on this growing issue.
