“I’ve worked under very powerful leaders and this is my
first opportunity to make decisions, and there are so many
practical and operational decisions to be made, but I’m loving

The Pruitt Campus is poised for major growth in the next
12 months or so. The School of Nursing will relocate there
from the main campus in Fort Pierce. Eventually, Treadwell

Treadwell also expects to be spending much of his time in
the community, in particular working with the Economic Development
Council of St. Lucie County, where he once held a
six-month vice president position back in the early 2000s.
He noted the blistering pace of new commercial development
in St. Lucie County and is determined to make sure the
college is ready to build a pipeline of trained workers for the

lead him, his No. 1 priority is family.

for me than seeing my children and wife do well. Everything
else comes second.”
Treadwell is a young-at-heart leader who has a very bright
future ahead of him. Under his watch, the Pruitt Campus
seems destined for great things. E
