Ambitious and hard working, Jeremy Wyatt, '98, electrical engineering, is definitely a multi-tasker. Whether he's working on software publications, pursuing his MBA or serving as master of ceremonies at a University of West Florida Boosting Engineering, Science and Technology (BEST) robotics competition, he still finds time to inspire and recruit new talent for his industry.
"I have been involved in the hiring of at least seven UWF graduates and I can say in all honesty that I have seen a direct correlation between hard work early on and success later," said Wyatt. "UWF understands that the community needs this kind of talent and that we have to start recruiting at the high-school level if we want our brightest kids to stay in the Northwest Florida region."
