Through the years, I have enjoyed the Youth Fair with my family. I have also been delighted at how much Florida International University has grown and flourished.

The expansion of FIU will be a beneficial one for all. More students will receive an education, which will lead to a better-prepared work force. The business will community be positively affected by the growth. And South Florida will be a definite winner overall, attracting students and faculty from other places. The benefits will be short and long term.

Knowing that everyone involved has great team spirit and is working towards the betterment of our community, I am certain that the county mayor, commissioners, FIU and Youth Fair officials will find a good place for the fair and that all of the details will be worked out.
