Kids celebrated with fun-in-the-sun event

Hollywood Incentives02By Gordon Wareham

HOLLYWOOD — The Hollywood incentive awards were all about having fun in the sun while honoring Seminole kids for their academic achievements during the school year.

More than 200 Seminole students from the Hollywood community were honored during the June 16 event, with more than 50 students and 30 parents making their way to the Seminole Estates clubhouse to celebrate the end of the school year.

“Today we recognized our students who have performed exemplary during their school year; we recognized their academics, attendance and overall performance for the school year,” said Education Department director Santarvis Brown to both students and parents. “We present them with certificates to motivate them to move them forward.”

Hollywood Board Rep. Steve Osceola also attended the event and offered his praise.

“I get to see each one of the kids being a good citizen, a Seminole, who is excelling and taking their schooling seriously. It gives them something to shoot for…,” he said.

After the awards were handed out, kids were entertained with music, water bounce house and super water slide located next to the pool. An inside bumper car arena capped off the activities for the kids.
