Budget Resolution Recognizing Donation From Pamela Wilfong for Marquee Sign at Dr. Dennis Wilfong Center for Success

The Board of County Commissioners named the joint - agency workforce development site in Honor of Dr. Dennis Wilfong in 2021. Dr. Wilfong was a local businessman that founded Innovative Technology, Inc, a world class manufacturing firm headquartered in Hernando County.

He worked with many industries including the Federal Aviation Administration, NASA, Ford Motor Company, and many others. He was instrumental in the vision of creating the workforce development site.

The Dr. Dennis Wilfong Center for success project, a joint project between the Board of County Commissioners, Hernando County School Board, and Pasco Hernando State College, is under construction. The purpose of this joint-agency project between Hernando County Government, School Board, and Pasco-Hernando State College is to support Hernando County's local workforce, by providing much needed, affordable, vocational and technical education options. This will allow more adults in our community to have access to training opportunities, that will improve their knowledge and skills, to support their pursuit of more lucrative jobs in high-demand occupations.

Phase 1 of the project associated with the site Infrastructure and Wilton Simpson Technical College is almost complete. Future phases of the project envision a Space Hub Business Incubator and continued expansion of workforce training facilities.

Pam Wilfong has donated $60,000 for the marquee entrance sign for the complex.
