For the past twenty five years, the Broward Education Foundation, the School Board of Broward County, local universities and businesses have all joined forces to work toward the goal of providing students in Broward County Schools the opportunity to attend college. The BRACE (Broward Advisors for Continuing Education) Scholarship Fund raised over $660,000 in scholarship dollars in the past year, which was awarded to 165 students at a reception on Thursday, August 11, 2011, at Global Grille Banquet Center, Fort Lauderdale.
BrightStar Credit Union is a long-term sponsor of the program. This year the Credit Union sponsored local student Michele W., helping her fulfill her college education at the University of Central Florida. Congratulations, Michele and all of the scholarship recipients! Good Luck.
