This week we welcome Wiley Page, Vice President of Eastern US Transportation Planning at Atkins.  Mr. Page has 27 years of experience in the area of urban and regional transportation planning. He has managed the development and implementation of numerous plans and programs including a number of long-range transportation plans such as the Florida-Alabama, Okaloosa-Walton, Bay County and Gainesville 2040 LRTP Updates.


Last week we welcomed Theo Graham of Year Up Jacksonville. Mr. Graham spoke about Year Up's one-year program for 18-24 year olds which enables motivated young adults to move towards meaningful careers. The program teaches technical and professional skills, as well as important skills for interviewing; such as body language, firm handshake, and eye contact.
