Robert "Bob" Epling, President and CEO of Community Bank of Florida, was recently re-appointed to The National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame Board of Directors. He has served on the board for four years and will continue to serve for a term of three years, among the ranks of Jim Cook, Jeffrey Immelt, Roger Staubach and Jim Nantz.
Epling was chosen to serve on the Board partly because of his role with the Orange Bowl Committee, which he has been a member of since 1983 and served as the 60th President. He has numerous other ties to football, including playing a lineman at South Dade High School prior to playing collegiate ball on a full athletic scholarship at Furman University.
Epling works closely with South Dade High School’s Concourse of Champions, which honors great athletes who have played at the school. His new position will allow him to recognize some of the best college athletes ever to play. He will also be part of a selection committee that names Hall of Fame Inductees.

Community Bank of Florida was pleased to support the Mexican American Council’s upcoming Migrant Student Scholarship Golf Tournament. The event will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2013 at Keys Gate Golf & Country Club. There’s still time to sign up for the tournament, and in addition to helping give scholarships to local farm worker students, your fee includes golfing, a cart, range balls, a commemorative shirt, a goodie bag, plus lunch and entertainment. Registration kicks off at 8am, followed by a Mariachi and Champagne Celebration. There will be several prizes and a special new highlight, the “Living Hero” Scholarship Award, which will be given to an exceptional migrant student who has served our nation in armed combat.
Maria Garza, President of the Mexican American Council, explained that the purpose of the Mexican American Council is to “support high achieving, but financially needy farm worker students. This year, over 200 students from farm worker families will graduate from Miami Dade County Schools and donations like the one made by Community Bank of Florida allows us to give them an opportunity to attend college.”
For more information about the tournament or about the Mexican American Council, please contact Eddie Garza at 305-804-3638 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
