Adams-Jenkins Music & Sports Complex on the campus of EWC is the home of EWC Tiger Basketball.
Current EWC students and other Jacksonville residents discuss what change is to them.
You can purchase an EWC specialty tag at anytime or when you renew your registration at your local tax collector's office, simply let them know you wish to replace your current license plate with a specialty license plate. If it is not time in your license plate's cycle to replace the metal license plate, you will pay a few additional dollars to switch to a specialty license plate, so the best time to switch is when you're going to have to replace your metal license plate (every five years). Specialty license plates cost a set fee (annually) above the standard Florida license plate, and the fees vary based on the type of license plate. These additional funds go to support the cause for which the specialty license plate was designed.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – In recognition of the 29th President of Edward Waters College who is also a historic former-sheriff for the City of Jacksonville, Mayor Alvin Brown has issued a proclamation declaring June 30, 2015 as “Nat Glover Day.” In conjunction with this proclamation, Mayor Alvin Brown also awarded Dr. Nathaniel Glover with a Key to the City of Jacksonville.
On April 11, 1995, Dr. Nathaniel Glover, made history when he was elected the first African American sheriff in Florida in more than 100 years, since Reconstruction. He served two-terms and retired from the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office on June 30, 2003.
Dr. Nathaniel Glover is a 1966 graduate of Edward Waters College where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Social Science. He later earned a Master of Education Degree from the University of North Florida (UNF). Dr. Glover is a graduate of the 130th Session of the FBI National Academy and a graduate of the 1989 class of Leadership Jacksonville. In 1995, Edward Waters College presented President Glover with an Honorary Doctorate of Law Degree. President Glover was later awarded with his second Honorary Doctorate of Law Degree from the University of North Florida last December.
As the 29th president of Florida’s first historically black college and private institution of higher learning, Dr. Nathaniel Glover brings a plethora of experience as a highly-respected leader, community servant and accomplished advocate for higher education. Since his permanent appointment in February 2011, he has continued to further the vision of transforming EWC into a dynamic and diverse learning-centered community focused on academic excellence, research and bettering humanity.
