Miami-Dade County District One Commissioner Barbara Jordan Presents $7,846 Scholarship to Opa-locka Cool Teen/Pearls Summer Camp Program

District 1 Commissioner Barbara Jordan with Opa-locka Vice Mayor Dorothy “Dottie” Johnson in attendance, awarded a $7,846 check to the Cool Teen/ Pearls Summer program.

On Wednesday, May 23, Miami-Dade County Commissioner Barbara J. Jordan presented the City of Opa-locka with a check for $7,846 for over 30 middle and high school students between the ages of 14-16, to participate in the 2012 COOL TEEN/PEARLS summer camp program.

The scholarship for the camp was made possible by the Board of County Commissioners, who exchanged an allotment of tickets from the Sony Ericsson Tennis Tournament, for a cash donation totaling $102,000, which was then divided equitably among the 13 Commission districts to donate to a charity or municipal program for children.

Commissioner Jordan said, “I believe the children in Opa-locka deserve this opportunity.”

The summer activities for the children include accelerated academic curriculum, employability skills, field trips, physical fitness and training team building projects.
