STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"When the founders of the Institute shared their dream of a lifelong learning center with me, several key words resonated.  Those words were: excellance, diversity, information, entertainment, and lively discussions on myriad topics.  In addition to the key words I heard, I also heard "assured funding stream".  I was sold.

Developing the Institute has been a gratifying experience.  I have been the executive director since its inception.  My education, experience, and knowledge of the community have been great resources.

The Lake Eustis Institute is unlike most lifelong learning centers.  One, it is not affiliated with any insitution of higher learning.  And, two, it offers meaty courses with well-qualified instrutctors.

Of course, the absence of that "assured revenue stream" has been disappointing, but there are other funding sources. Institute's endowment will happen someday when the Lake Community Foundation finds a qualifed developer for the land.  In the meantime, the Institute serves a purpose and fulfills its mission."
