Miami Lakes, FL - The Town of Miami Lakes presented during the April 8th Council meeting its highest honor, of the key to the Town to Miami-Dade County School Board (MDCSB) Chair Perla Tabares Hantman for her passion and dedication to education. Ms. Tabares Hantman has lived in Miami Lakes for more than 30 years.

“Over the years, Chairwoman Perla Tabares Hantman has proudly represented Miami-Dade County School Board District 4’s area schools, including those in the Town of Miami Lakes.  Her commitment & passion to this community is greatly appreciated and we look forward to continue working with her and Miami-Dade County Public Schools to provide our residents access to great educational opportunities,” Town Mayor Wayne Slaton said.

During the Council meeting, Town Mayor and Council also declared April 8, 2014 as Perla Tabares Hantman Day in Miami Lakes and read a proclamation of her accomplishments. “It is my privilege to have been chosen by the Town of Miami Lakes Mayor and Council Members to receive this prestigious honor,” Tabares Hantman said.
