Governor Askew Honored

Former Florida Governor Reubin Askew was honored at the historic Capitol Monday morning for his dedication to education and politics.

Governor Askew has taught at the majority of Florida’s public universities and was Governor in the state during the 1970’s. He has been known for the changes he made in the state. One of his fondest memories was being a supporter during the civil rights movement.

“People in the south should have a chance at life. Not who they are, status in society, but they should have a right,” said Askew.

The governor announced his last year of teaching at Florida State University this year
