Mayor Bermudez Addresses Students at Doral Academy on the Importance of Entrepreneurship

Doral, FL – Doral Mayor Juan Carlos Bermudez addressed close to one hundred students at a grant award ceremony at Doral Academy Charter Preparatory School. The event was part of a special presentation by State Farm Insurance who awarded the school with a $25,000 grant for their Financial Literacy classes.

Mayor Bermudez spoke to the students on the importance of entrepreneurship and their future in a global, competitive economy.  It has been his goal as Mayor to work together with principals in the Doral area to include Financial Literacy classes at the high school level.

Doral Academy was one of only 11 high-schools in the state of Florida to receive the State Farm Youth Advisory Board grant for their Firebird Nest project, which was first conceived at Doral Academy in order for students to understand the responsibilities of managing money and making smart financial decisions. Students in the Advanced Algebra/Financial Applications class will have a major component of their grade based on the successful implementation and maintenance of a profitable in-school business.
