DAYTONA BEACH, FL –The Daytona Tortugas are partnering with the Blossoms Workforce Academy for the 2018 season, as announced Tuesday afternoon.

“Blossoms Workforce Academy is very excited to partner with the Daytona Tortugas for the 2018 season. Because our mission is identical to the Tortugas in giving back to the community, promoting diversity, and stressing the importance of education and learning. Blossoms’ partnership with the Tortugas was a no-brainer. We look forward to our partnership in creating an atmospheric community for togetherness, where everybody has an opportunity to learn and grow,” said Blossoms CEO Paul Sturdgess.
Blossoms teaches CPR and AED training, provides CNA test prep and scheduling, and teaches customer service and management skills to all members of the community, among other services.
