Robbie Palmiotto, Business Administration
Robbie was selected for the prestigious Robert R. and Peggy I. Sharp Fellowship in Business, which provides a $6,000 scholarship and a 150-hour internship with the AAA Auto Club South. Robbie was exposed to the three main aspects of AAA’s business — travel agency, insurance, and sales — and assisted in booking trips and helping auto travel customers with their itineraries. He previously interned with The Ruthvens, a warehouse leasing firm in Lakeland, and he said it was a great experience to see how different businesses are run. Robbie plans to work for a couple of years after graduation and then pursue an MBA.
