WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A college's new public policy center is being named for former Sen. George LeMieux.
Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach announced the establishment of The LeMieux Center for Public Policy on Friday.
The center will host a lecture series and other programs giving students a chance to engage with politicians, journalists, authors and academics. It also will include an independent study program in which fellows will work directly with LeMieux on a research project.
Palm Beach Atlantic is a small Christian college. LeMieux served in the Senate for 16 months after being appointed by former Gov. Charlie Crist to finish out the term of former Sen. Mel Martinez. His papers and other items from his time in Washington are also housed at PBAU.
