Community Bank of Florida is extremely proud to announce Colleen Boggs was selected by the Alliance of Aging to receive their Environmental Award at the Annual Positive Living Awards Ceremony. The Positive Living Awards honor outstanding seniors over age 60 who “give back” to the community.
Mrs. Boggs is a dynamic woman. After building a successful business, raising a family and breaking numerous glass ceilings, she has continued to make a difference. Colleen has served as president of the Dade County Farm Bureau and has been a board member since 1976. She has been an advocate for farmers and nursery growers, traveling to Tallahassee to acquaint legislators with issues affecting agriculture. She was the first woman to become chapter president of the Dade County Florida Nursery, Growers and Landscape Association (FNGLA) and in 1986 became the association’s second female state president. She has been a member of Community Bank of Florida’s board of directors since 1988 and became the first woman elected chair in 2001.
Colleen has served on numerous local boards and has a long list of accomplishments. She has been named Outstanding Agriculturalist of the Year and in 2006 was inducted into the FNGLA Hall of Fame. In 2009, she entered and conquered the Heartland Triathlon for the first time, placing second in her age group. Although she is over 60, she has not slowed down. She is a loving mother, grandmother and outstanding role model. We are proud to have her as a leader of our financial family.
