We look ahead to the 5th annual African Diaspora Dance and Drum Festival of Florida. Its mission is to preserve African-American heritage here — and does so in a way everyone can enjoy— through food, music and dance. This year’s theme is “bridging cultural gaps”. We focus on why the festival is significant, and what it has to offer. We are also joined in the studio by 4 performers — dancers and drummers who will be participating in next month’s event.
The Greater Miami Athletic Conference Football Officers Association has been serving the student-athletes of public and private schools in South Florida for more than 75 years. They work over 400 high school football games per season in Miami-Dade county alone. They are a group of dedicated referees and officials, but their goals of community service take them way beyond the football field. We focus on their mission and how you can help them achieve their goals.
South Florida students have returned to the classroom and obviously, so have their teachers. That means it’s back to business as usual for the United Teachers of Dade union. The UTD represents more than 35-thousand school employees who work to educate more than 370-thousand students in more than 400 schools. And this year the UTD is marking its 40th anniversary. We focus on the important role the UTD plays, not only for teachers, but for students and parents as well.
