"I've had students at UWF inspire me in ways I can't even begin to tell you. We have very strong relationships with our students that are critical to their success, and they don't end upon graduation. Maintaining those relationships is what makes us truly different; we're family."
Anthony Pelezo ’86
Anthony Pelezo, president of reimbursement policy and chief medical officer for Equian, is the picture of professional success, along with humble generosity and a commitment to be part of a flourishing community. In 2016, he gave $100,000 to help kickstart the UWF football team, and he continues to show his support to the Argos as a member of the Football Founders group. “My heart lies with building future leaders for this community and attracting people to this area. The University is an important part of this community, and it will remain so. I’m really thrilled to be a part of the University’s success,” he said.
