About this Episode

Florida gets an assist from First Lady Jill Biden, who is holding two events in the state to encourage people to get vaccinated.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— College kids can say adios to Zoom. The head of the Florida Board of Governors says the state university system is ready to return to full-time face-to-face instruction.

— The board also approved the appointment of two new university presidents … including the first full-time female president at New College of Florida. Don't let her looks deceive you: Dr. Patricia Okker can probably kick your butt … and outrun it too.

— The board also approved a new president for Florida State University and the reappointment of the presidents of Florida Poly and Florida International.

— House Speaker Chris Sprowls is asking the people who run the universities to produce innovative ideas to make sure conservative students and faculty members aren't silenced on campus.

— Congressman Matt Gaetz claims the military stand-down to address White supremacy and extremist behavior that is hurting the service … but the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff says they need to know.

— And finally, police are accusing a Florida Woman of battering her boyfriend — with a plate full of chicken.
