In the early 1930's, Mae McMillan began tutoring children of winter visitors to Fort Lauderdale. She helped them with assignments so they could return to their home schools with their studies up to date. The high caliber of her teaching soon attracted full-time local students, and in 1934 she founded her school in rented rooms in the old Elks Club Building in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Stimulated by Mrs. McMillan's foresight and dedication, scholastic improvements brought increased enrollment and a pressing need for physical expansion. In 1939, she moved her 100 students to an eight-acre site on East Broward Boulevard and added a boarding department. It was here that Mrs. McMillan established the name of Pine Crest School. Space was limited in the former hospital building, so she acquired acreage across a side street for use as an elementary school. Pine Crest remained on the downtown campus for 26 years. Pine Crest School became accredited during those years and developed a reputation as an excellent college preparatory school. Accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) was followed by membership in the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), the Florida Council of Independent Schools (FCIS), and numerous other professional groups. To better serve the needs of the expanding community's population, the school was incorporated as a non-profit institution in 1959 and moved in 1965 to an entirely new 49-acre campus in northeast Fort Lauderdale. At that time, William J. McMillan '45, the Founder's son, became Headmaster and served in that capacity until 1988, when Dr. Lourdes M. Cowgill was invested as Headmistress and Mr. McMillan held the position of President of the Pine Crest Preparatory School Corporation. Dr. Cowgill succeeded Mr. McMillan as President on September 1, 1995; Dr. Dana Markham became the School's fifth President in December of 2011. In 1987, the Pine Crest Preparatory School Corporation acquired Boca Raton Academy and established the Pine Crest School Boca Raton campus, encompassing Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 8. Graduates are invited to complete their preparatory school education in the Upper School on the Fort Lauderdale campus. An independent, all-faith, coeducational school, Pine Crest holds accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, The Florida Council of Independent Schools, and the Florida Kindergarten Council, and is also a member of the National Association of Independent Schools.

The words "Leadership Council on Legal Diversity" are carefully chosen. Since the formation of the LCLD was announced in May 2009, the group has focused on developing strategies to increase diversity in the legal profession. Just as importantly, the LCLD has brought together the leaders of law firms and corporate legal departments to do that. At the time of the announcement, Rick Palmore, General Counsel of General Mills and former Chair of the LCLD Board of Directors underscored the significance of the effort: "LCLD is doing what no other initiative has done—uniting the legal industry's senior leaders in one organization to address and resolve the enormous diversity challenges in our profession." The Leadership Council on Legal Diversity has, since May 2009, organized a committee structure around four key strategic initiatives. Those initiatives are titled: Strategy & Innovation, Development, Partnerships & Teams, and Pipeline. At a glance, the initiatives will address the following opportunities and challenges: Strategy & Innovation. Research and develop a robust, new analytical tool to give more meaningful, sophisticated insight into the actual diversity of law firms and corporate legal departments. The objective of this committee's work will be to delve more deeply than quantitative measurements and "rankings." Partnerships & Teams. Identify, analyze, and promote successful diversity partnering efforts. The focus is on projects and programs that encourage collaboration between law firms, corporate legal departments, and other organizations with a commitment to diversity. Development. Work to ensure the development of diverse critical talent, creating ongoing programs to allow members to present and learn about successful programs for the development of diverse critical talent. Pipeline. Evaluate and support programs that encourage the entry of individuals of diverse backgrounds into the field of law. The committee will accomplish its objectives through collaboration with organizations committed to a more diverse profession. Taken as a whole, the work of the four LCLD Board committees will support the LCLD's stated goal to ". . .work in partnership to eliminate impediments and provide minorities and women with a full and fair opportunity to perform, to succeed, and to lead."

In 1977, a plan that would forever change how the Orlando region works to attract and grow local industry was put into place. The Industrial Development Commission (IDC) was formed with four staff associates, 110 individual members and a great vision for the future. The IDC united the efforts of three groups that were doing similar economic development-type work—the Orlando Chamber of Commerce's Committee of 200, the Central Florida Development Committee and the Orlando/Orange County Industrial Development Board. The group was primarily focused on the attraction and recruitment of targeted industries. While the IDC originally served Orange County and the City of Orlando, a regional focus was always the vision of its leadership. In 1981, Seminole County folded its economic development functions into the IDC; Lake County joined the partnership in 1987; and Osceola County came on board in 1989, the same year that the organization's name changed to the Economic Development Commission of Mid-Florida (EDC). In 2001, the organization was renamed the Metro Orlando Economic Development Commission and the community brand, "Putting imagination to work", was launched. Today, with a staff of 32 and approximately 350 private- and public-sector investors, the EDC is focused on attracting, retaining and growing targeted industries that have the potential to create high-wage, high-value jobs and to diversify the region's economic base. In terms of responsibilities and functions, the EDC markets the four-county Metro Orlando worldwide as a thriving location for business investment and growth. To prepare this community to compete most effectively, especially within the current challenges of the global economy, the EDC is working to advance a comprehensive regional economic development strategy designed to identify and target future drivers of job growth and enhance competitiveness through the updating of legislative, regulatory and incentive factors. On behalf of the region, the full-service organization spearheads comprehensive business intelligence, public relations and marketing outreach, film and television production attraction and permitting, local business retention and expansion, lead generation and prospect/project management. Some of the many services provided by the EDC to clients and government partners include: site selection, permitting, licensing, local and state incentive coordination, real estate identification, vendor identification, demographics and research, ongoing compilation of economic indicators, workforce recruitment and training, community tours, trade show representation, film permitting, public relations and advertising. In addition, the EDC has launched a number of important, and somewhat unique, economic development initiatives. In 1986, the organization added film and television production to its line-up of focus areas and the Metro Orlando Film Commission was born. Three years later came the establishment of an industry retention team that specifically worked to help local businesses grow and to regularly assess and help meet their needs. Today the EDC also manages the Metro Orlando Miltary Affairs Advisory Council (MAAC) and bioOrlando—the Central Chapter of BioFlorida; both initiatives are designed to help retain and accelerate growth of two important local industry sectors. To ensure close working ties with another important local industry, EDC offices are co-located with the Manufacturers Association of Central Florida (MACF).
