CFO Sink Launches A.L.Ex. Program

June 17th, 2008 by flanews

Floridas Chief Financial Officer is tapping the states university talent pool. About 20 Florida college students began working for CFO Alex Sink this week. The paid internships are part of the Academy of Leadership Excellence Program, also know as A-L-Ex, for the CFOs first name. This is the first year for the program. The students will work in 11 different divisions of the Department of Financial Services. Every student will be assigned a mentor. FAMU Grad-student LaToya Russell will work in the CFOs office of Communication this summer. Russell said the program has given her the opportunity to pursue her dreams

I see it just adding to my basic experience and helping me cultivate knowledge that I can apply to what I want to do in the future which is policy, said Russell.

CFO Sink hopes the program will encourage the states best and brightest college students to stay in Florida.
