On May 18, 2011, fifteen of Miami-Dade County’s most outstanding high school seniors were honored at the 2011 Silver Knight Award Ceremony, and among the award winning recipients, from the City of Opa-locka, were Stephanie Jennings and Jazmine Lightbourn of Miami Carol City Senior High School.

Since the students embodied service and self-sacrifice, while using their skills, knowledge and talents to make significant contributions to their schools and community, the City of Opa-locka Mayor and Commission decided to give support and reward excellence by presenting the students with proclamations and cash (which staff members and residents also began making contributions as Vice Mayor Dorothy Johnson collected donations) to further encourage  Jennings and Lightbourn’s continued commitment to superiority.

The Silver Knight Award program was founded in 1959 by former Miami Herald publisher John S. Knight. More than 1,200 students have earned the Silver Knight distinction over the past 53 years.
