Trail students snag education awards

Trail Incentive Awards02MIAMI BEACH — Hard-working Seminole students from Trail celebrated their school-year achievements with an awards ceremony at Texas de Brazil restaurant June 12 in Miami Beach.

While kids seemed eager to relax into summer, Education director Santarvis Brown had some sage advice for students.

“Through education, they can succeed in anything they do,” Brown said. “Over the summer they should keep reading, keep reading, keep reading.”

Each student received a certificate and a sweatshirt as a gift from the Tribe.

“It was the hardest year yet,” said Katherine Jim, who finished her junior year at Florida Christian School in Miami. “I took more honors and science classes, so I could knock them out before senior year.”

Trail Liaison Norman Huggins congratulated students and thanked their parents for getting their children off to school.

“It does take a whole village to raise a kid,” Liaison Huggins said. “To the Education staff, sho-naa-bish and congratulations on a successful year.”
