The Miami Bayside Foundation awarded college scholarships to twenty-six high school seniors from City of Miami Public Schools. The twenty-six students were honored at Miami City Hall by City of Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado and city commissioners; parents and Miami Bayside Foundation board members were also present. This is the inaugural year of a multi-year scholarship program commitment made by Miami Bayside Foundation to the City of Miami Public School System. Miami Bayside Foundation scholarship programs have given students the opportunity to access resources that were not previously available to them. With the awarding of these twenty-six scholarships, the Miami Bayside Foundation continues to demonstrate its commitment to providing educational opportunities to future business leaders and entrepreneurs in the City of Miami.
