Staff Spotlight: Fernando Ottati



The Bright Idea Award is designed to recognize an individual or group who has, in the past year, created an innovative program or service consistent with the mission and values of Student Affairs. The new program or service should be one that improves efficiency, customer service, and/or significantly enhances accomplishment of the Division goals. This year we are recognize two individuals for this award.
One of the primary goals of student affairs is to create opportunities for engagement for our students.  By combining a passion with initiative Fernando created the FIU Comics Club here at BBC.  The club has been an instant success, drawing nearly 60 student members in its first few months.  The club has been already featured by FIU News and the Beacon for its accomplishments and has even been congratulated by our own President Rosenberg on their success.
As in illustrator himself, Fernando has been able to share his skills and energy with our students to promote student engagement with great success.
Please join me in congratulating Fernando Ottati.
