8-koi’s CDE Donates PPE to Palm Beach State College Nursing Program

Over 1,000 KN95 masks were donated to nursing students at Palm Beach State College (PBSC) as part of the long-standing commitment CDE and 8-koi have to supporting higher education across Florida.

Victor Diaz, CDE’s Engineering Manager and Vice President of 8-koi’s Design Engineering Division, delivered the supply of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to the Dean of Academic Affairs and Health Sciences Edward Willey in January to help keep students safe while learning practical skills during the COVID-19 public health crisis.

“It’s really important for us to continue to nurture this well-established relationship with our academic partners in the communities where we work,” said 8-koi President Inga Young. “Not only can we assist in helping colleges grow through improvements to their physical plants, but we aim to support the students pursuing careers in critical industries like nursing and the skilled construction trades that we all depend on.”

CDE is an engineering services provider-of-choice for PBSC and has designed, constructed, and maintained facilities on several campuses over the past twenty years. The KN95 masks are one of many available items in the medical supply inventory offered by 8-koi’s Healthcare Division.

CDE and 8-koi are proud corporate partners of the Palm Beach State College Foundation and supports their vision for “a better, healthier future through equitable education.”
