Parkland residents with a passion for volunteering were part of four students awarded scholarships from the Broward League of Cities.
On April 21, the Broward League of Cities awarded $1,000 scholarships to four Broward County high school seniors to support their studies in municipal government. The students plan to pursue a college education focused on public service, public policy, government, and/or community affairs.
“It was such a pleasure to recognize these students for their outstanding educational and community achievements,” said Beverly Williams, President of the Broward League of Cities. “As the changemakers of today, it’s important for us to support our young leaders of tomorrow in both their educational pursuits and professional interests.”
The following students were awarded scholarships:
