Central Florida Business Exchange extends its legacy through Valencia College scholarships

Central Florida Builders Exchange leaders presented $275,000 to Valencia Foundation to support scholarships for students in related disciplines. Trudi Larson, who served for many years as CEO, joined former board members of the recently dissolved organization David Shaw, Robert High, Tony Salvo and John Matthews.

CFBE began in 1944 and evolved with the needs of the industry. Recently, the board made the difficult decision to cease operations in response to economic and local conditions.

It is celebrating its 70-year legacy of service by offering opportunity and access to college. This organization made an amazing difference to the community and to local businesses for nearly three-quarters of a century.

Through the Central Florida Business Exchange Endowed Scholarship, that history and dedication will continue to live on through students and alumni.

We are grateful that CFBE leaders selected Valencia students as the beneficiaries of their extraordinary generosity and look forward to having them meet their Central Florida Business Exchange Scholars.
