“Clint and his team at Balfour Beatty are shining examples of the powerful ways that corporations can invest in and support the local communities in which they do business,” said Dr. Dennis Gallon, president of Palm Beach State College. “They have been long-time supporters of the College, and we cannot thank them enough for their continued support.”
