FIOP Honors Dr. Ligato & Florida Southern College
LAKELAND, FL - Florida Industrial and Organizational Psychology (FIOP) honored Dr. Joseph Ligato, and Florida Southern College (FSC) for their efforts in the founding of the organization. Two plaques were presented by FIOP President Chris Barnhart. Dr. Ligato accepted FSC's plaque on their behalf.
Dr. Ligato was able to work with Florida Southern to secure critical funding for FIOP's initial expenses.
"Without Dr. Ligato's advocation, and FSC's willingness to believe in us, it would have been very difficult to do the heavy lifting that is required when a new state-wide organization is created" said FIOP President Chris Barnhart from Lakeland, Florida.
The plaques were approved by the Board of Directors as a gesture of thanks for such a critical action taken at such a critical time.
Dr. Ligato said that he was honored to received the plaque and graciously accepted FSC's plaque as well. The action of recognizing such matters falls under the "celebrate" pillar of FIOP's Mission to celebrate, advance, and advocate for the field of I/O Psychology."
