President Valencia Acknowledged as a Leader in Career Education

ASA College President, José F. Valencia, was featured in the June 16th “People on the Move” section of the South Florida Business Journal. Covering industry leaders and trends in the Miami area, the South Florida Business Journal is a respected publication by those who understand innovation and excellence in the education and business sectors.

It was no wonder that the paper’s editors took note of President Valencia’s accomplishment – He is the first member of ASA’s executive team to have ever been elected to the board of any association that represents or advocates for academic institutions in the country. The organization which ASA College has joined, the Florida Association of Postsecondary Schools and Colleges, FAPSC, has served as an advocate for all of Florida’s degree-granting and non-degree-granting career schools and colleges.

President Valencia earned his place on the board for good reason. ASA College’s Hialeah Campus location offers an ever-expanding selection of online, hybrid, and on-ground associate and bachelor’s degree programs that uniquely support students who want to make a positive change towards a more fulfilling career and future financial security. Career schools and colleges in the Florida area see ASA’s offerings, faculty, and culture as worthy of emulation.

When asked about this distinction, President Valencia deflected attention from himself and said, “this year, because of the unprecedented pandemic crisis, our students were asked to demonstrate uncommon perseverance, and they did. I’d like to think that the innovation and support we put into practice during this period has contributed to their exceptional success.”

The editors of the South Florida Business Journal, and the members of the FAPSC Board have certainly recognized the value of President Valencia’s leadership in Higher Education and can now benefit from his presence and guidance in the wider world of workforce training, academic innovation, and business leadership.
