I can’t even begin to express my gratitude towards the Foundation and Commissioner Gort.

“I would like to thank the Miami Bayside Foundation and Commissioner Gort for making my own aspirations a possibility through these scholarships, which help to support my educational pursuits. I first learned about this scholarship through my guidance counselor at iPrep, and I think every Miami-Dade student should take advantage of these wonderful opportunities!”
