BrightStar Helped To Honor School Mentors, Volunteers, Partners and Teachers

BrightStar recently attended two great local events, the Broward Schools Community Involvement Awards & the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Teacher of the Year recognition luncheon.

The Community Involvement Awards recognize the top Broward Schools volunteers, mentors and business partners. The folks who were recognized at this event are doing fantastic work with schools and students. The ceremony was held at Parker Playhouse and was organized by Broward Schools and Partners In Education.

The Greater Hollywood Chamber of Commerce held their annual Teachers of the Year Luncheon at Orangebrook Golf & Country Club. The event recognized 29 great teachers in the Hollywood, Fl area.

BrightStar was a sponsor of both events. Congratulations to all of the honorees!
