“If we do not tell our story, others will for us, and it will not be correct.”

“If we don’t tell our story, others will for us, and it won’t be correct.”

Last week we hosted a special group of 15 Chamber of Commerce business leaders, none of whom had ever visited Fishburne.  They were asked to describe in 1 word, their view of Fishburne PRIOR to the tour.

Military, Troubled and Reform came out.

At the end of our time together, AFTER touring the campus they then were asked to describe in 1 word their view of Fishburne.

Opportunity, Springboard, Structure, Discipline and Gateway came out.

As the local student population continues to grow, our goal is that our message is properly shared and that the local, regional and statewide business support grows too.
