Mayor Juan Carlos Bermudez recently partnered with Livius Tutoring and Doral high schools to award $3,000 in scholarships to four fortunate students at the 2019 College Event on November 16. Held at Albizu University the event consisted of two sessions, a Student High School session and a general College Informational segment.
“The process of applying for college and financial aid can be daunting, that’s why I’ve set out to work with Livius, which has extensive experience and resources dealing with these important topics,” stated Mayor Juan Carlos Bermudez. “It’s important that as a community we help our residents, particularly our youths, during these milestone moments with the tools and support needed for them to succeed.”
More than 150 students from Divine Savior Academy, Doral Academy Preparatory School, and Ronald W. Reagan/Doral Senior High School were selected to participate in all-day workshops through their corresponding schools. Parents of those students also were invited to a parent session to discuss college readiness. Two $1,000 scholarships were then be awarded by Mayor Juan Carlos Bermudez.
