Created in 2018, the Unity Award is awarded to an organization or individual who truly embodies the essence of the Chamber’s three core values, “Embracing Heritage,” “Creating Opportunity,” and “Building Unity.” This year, Martin Levert, Director of the FTC Kissimmee Campus, received the honor on behalf of the institution.
“At FTC, we believe in ongoing collaboration that builds on resources, expertise and knowledge of our campus and business community to ultimately enhance the quality of life of Osceola residents,” stated Martin. “As a community builder and partner in civic engagement, FTC will remain committed to the positive development of Osceola through active stewardship.”
Aside from leading the Kissimmee campus, Martin also sits on the Hispanic Business Council Board of Directors.
“We feel honored that one of our own was selected as this year’s Unity Award recipient, and I could not feel prouder of our organization and our team, and their willingness to make a difference on and off the FTC campus,” stated Dr. James Michael Burkett, President of FTC. “At FTC, we thrive on community-based partnerships. It’s what enables us to create more programs and opportunities for our community and for the future of generations to come,” added Burkett. “We believe that by leveraging strengths that each one of our colleagues’ members at the Chamber can offer and by collaborating with industry forces, we can build a supportive ecosystem and reinvigorate our region.”
