"For Florida’s learners and earners alike, sports are vital to the success and wellbeing of all Florida communities. We’ve seen firsthand that when sports are a priority in our education system, students are more likely to stay engaged in school and at-risk students are more likely to close achievement gaps. Sports further provide children and adults with the leadership and teamwork tools they need to succeed throughout their lives. Sports industries provide essential jobs for Floridians and bring communities together as one, with amateur and professional sports economically elevating many Florida communities. I am dedicated to continuing to support our athletes and athletic organizations that call Florida home, as Florida’s sports family is truly creating bridges to opportunity and prosperity for Floridians of all ages."
46th Governor of Florida
