Santa Fe students invited to Mike Fernandez speech March 10

Entrepreneur and author Miguel “Mike” Fernandez will share his extraordinary personal story during a free lecture with University of Florida and Santa Fe College students on Tuesday, March 10, at 4:15 p.m. in UF’s Emerson Alumni Hall.

Fernandez’ presentation and book, “Humbled by the Journey: Life Lessons for My Family And Yours,” tells the story of how at the age of 12 he came to the United States from Cuba penniless, and in adulthood built dozens of successful companies, selling three companies in excess of $1.5 billion within the last year. He has contributed more than $100 million to charitable causes during the past two decades.

Lecture attendees will receive a complimentary signed copy of his book.  For information, contact Maria Gutierrez Martin of UF’s College of Education at 352-273-4144 or
