The Fort Myers campus recently hosted the “Spring Into A New Career Open House”. To kick the year off, Keiser University Fort Myers teamed up with Gulf Coast Writers Association, Inc., Toastmasters & Arts of the Inland to put on a Literary Festival. The spotlight of the day was student speeches and writers. Marshe Ford presented her speech, “TGIT” and received some wonderful feedback from members of Toasmasters and her instructor Dr. Brian Moffitt. Kayla Davidson, a senior at Island Coast High School and Katie Buongiorno, a Bachelor in Psychology student were the winners of the writing contest. All the writing submissions were judged by published authors of Gulf Coast Writers Association, Inc. There was also a medical spelling bee and a book signing by local author Gregg Turner. Several Keiser University program tables were set up to highlight the many offerings on campus. People who attended the event feasted on food that was generously donated by Chic-Fil-A Restaurant on Colonial Boulevard. A local DJ provided classical music to tie in the theme of the day. Arts of the Inland generously provided art to showcase the local Fort Myers area. Y100 radio also did a live broadcast from the campus to promote attendance. The literary festival theme showcased the importance of student writing and public speaking.
