I can’t even begin to express my gratitude towards the Foundation and Commissioner Gort. You are helping me fulfill my dreams!  Nothing that I have done so far would be possible if it weren’t for the support of the MBF/Willy Gort Scholarship. I’m so, appreciative. My gratitude towards Miami Bayside Foundation is infinite!
