DAYTONA BEACH, Fla -- It became apparent pretty quickly to the Board of Daytona State College to seek the services of a lobbyist to compete for capital improvements and other such funding funding after DSC President Carol Eaton showed a series of statistics showing the college near the bottom compared to state colleges in South Florida.

The Board has not yet gotten to the issue of Eaton's request to be relieved of her presidency now instead of August when her contract expires and to allow her to serve as an advisor to whomever is chosen as an interim or permanent replacement.
