In late May, Gov. Rick Scott announced the appointment of Bridgette Mill to the St. Petersburg College board of trustees.
Mill, 42, is president and publisher of the Tampa Bay Business Journal. That publication quoted her as saying, "St. Petersburg College is on the cutting edge of meeting the workforce needs of the Tampa Bay business community and the future economic development for our region. I am proud to have been selected to be part of such an important organization that will lead us to be the No. 1 state in the country to live, work and play."
According to a press release from the governor's office, the Seminole resident has served as a board member of the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corp. and on the Board of Fellows for the University of Tampa.
Her term on the SPC board began May 30 and ends May 31, 2015.
