Newman-Dailey Resort Properties gifted Northwest Florida State College with $15,000 to establish the Newman-Dailey Resort Properties Fund. This gift comes at the perfect time with the launch of NWFSC’s Hospitality and Tourism Management program.

The Newman-Dailey Resort Properties Fund will help ensure a program of excellence to meet local workforce needs. Funds will be used to support the hospitality simulation room, which will include a front desk with operations equipment and industry recognized software, as well as a hotel lab furnished with a bed, chair, mirror, bathroom and other furniture fixture and equipment items typical in a hotel room setting.

The Hospitality and Tourism Management program prepares students for employment in the hospitality industry and provides supplemental training for people previously or currently employed in these occupations. The program is designed to assist people in the hotel, resort, bed and breakfast, club, marina, event management, restaurant and other lodging organizations. Students receive training in communications, leadership and human relations skills.

Newman-Dailey Resort Properties is a vacation rental, real estate sales and association management company in Miramar Beach. Founded in 1985, Newman-Dailey has been welcoming guests to the beaches of South Walton and Destin for more than 30 years.
