TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Leadership Florida Board Chair Kam Patton presented Senate President Kathleen Passidomo with the 2023 Chair’s Award at its Annual Meeting in Boca Raton this past weekend.

“Kathleen Passidomo has made a lifetime commitment to Florida, and her impact can be felt across the state, by every age and demographic,” said Leadership Florida Board Chair Kam Patton. “The quality of life in Florida is greater as a result, and her legacy will be felt for generations to come.”
“A key component of Leadership Florida is the ability for our members to build their personal and professional networks in order to make positive impacts in our state,” said Wendy Spencer, president and CEO of Leadership Florida. “Senate President Passidomo continuously works to make Florida a better place for all its citizens. We could not be prouder to have her as this year’s recipient of the Chair’s Award.”
