Honors students land prestigious League of Cities scholarships
Three Miami Dade College students were the recent recipients of the Miami-Dade County League of Cities scholarships.
Rose-Taina Honorat, Gershom Jones and Christian Moreno were nominated by MDC faculty to receive the scholarships. Along with a $1,000 award, the scholarship recipients get internships at various government offices throughout the county.
“We want to get students involved in government,” said Richard Kuper, executive director for the Miami-Dade County League of Cities and an MDC alumnus. “It’s a way to help students with their education and give them a little motivation to learn the inner workings of government.”
Honorat is student in The Honors College at MDC’s Wolfson Campus. Originally from Haiti, she plans to continue her studies in law school when she graduates from MDC. She is the Student Government Association treasurer at Wolfson Campus.
Jones is a student in The Honors College at North Campus. He has a keen interest in business and international relations and has participated in national meetings and important student clubs.
Moreno is a student in The Honors College at the Kendall Campus majoring in political science and finance. He is the campus’ Student Government Association president. He also enjoys running, and singing in a band.
