Rick Scott to attend the Florida Community Leaders Dinner on March 7 in Tallahassee. Montecalvo was among 26 distinguished community leaders from across Florida who were invited to the Governor’s mansion for an evening of celebration and conversation. “I’m very thankful that Gov. Scott recognizes the outstanding work that our team at Guadalupe Center is carrying out on a daily basis,” said Montecalvo, who was seated at the governor’s dinner table. “In speaking with the governor, his commitment to the children and residents of Florida is obvious.” Dinner participants included dynamic leaders from business, education, government and non-profit associations, each of whom was offered an opportunity to discuss their organization’s innovative programs and initiatives, as well as enjoy the historical library at the Governor’s mansion. “The room was filled with a who’s who of remarkable individuals from across Florida who are making a difference in their respective communities, so to be among them is both humbling and gratifying,” said Montecalvo.
