May 13, 2015

Miami-Dade County Public School Board Member, Dr. Tee Holloway, sponsored a proclamation to recognize the Hon. Billy Joel, Chairman of the Aventura Marketing Council’s Anchors Away Foundation, and former Aventura Vice-Mayor.  The proclamation, co-sponsored unanimously by all the other School Board members, was presented by Dr. Holloway at the April 15 School Board meeting.  

Dr. Holloway noted that under Mr. Joel’s leadership, 37 specially-crafted boats for disabled children of Miami-Dade County Public Schools are now sailing in Oleta River State Park, Coconut Grove Yacht Club and Miami Sailing Club.  Holloway noted, “Over 2,500 sailings take place each year…giving our special students the freedom on the water that they may not have on land.”
