SARASOTA, Fla. (July 1, 2015) – The Enterprise Holdings Foundation continues to support USF Sarasota-Manatee students, donating $5,000 toward professional development programs at the university’s Career Services office.

Andrew Gorman, area rental manager at Enterprise Holdings, made the contribution on Tuesday. The gift boosts the foundation’s giving total to $20,000 since 2007 when it announced support for the programs to sharpen students’ communication and presentation skills.

“These programs help our students understand business etiquette, which helps them be better prepared for employment,” Career Services Coordinator Toni Ripo said. “We strongly appreciate the support of the Enterprise Holdings Foundation.”

Additionally, many USF Sarasota-Manatee students intern at Enterprise. Some go on to find employment in the company’s management-trainee program.
