“UWF gives teachers the freedom and flexibility to push students to develop as both individuals and as scholars. After 28 years of experiencing this, I can tell you that our graduates are ahead of the game.”
The Honorable Jerry Maygarden ’74, ’75
Right out of high school, Maygarden helped build the road leading into UWF. As SGA president, he funded the Natatorium. Later, in the legislature, he lobbied for the HLS Facility and had a hand in purchasing 600 acres that expanded the campus by 60 percent. The former Pensacola mayor said his time at UWF prepared him for a life of public service.
