Mayor Pizzi Donates $1,000 To Miami Lakes Middle School Law Studies Program
Miami Lakes, FL - On Saturday, March 16, Mayor Michael Pizzi hosted a “Jail and Bail” Event to help raise funds for the Miami Lakes Middle School Law Magnet Studies Program students. In February, the students competed against over 740 middle and high school students to win the Middle School division for the State. Next week, the students will be traveling to Washington, D.C. to compete in the Inaugural We the People Middle School National Finals. The students will have an incredible weekend of simulated hearings with distinguished judges. The competition will take place on the campus of George Mason University, one of the finest universities in the D.C. area.
“This is a tremendous opportunity of a lifetime for these students as they exhibit their civic learning and explore our Nation’s capital,” said Mayor Pizzi.
