On Saturday, May 5, CAFCI held its 25th annual Student Assistance Award Ceremony at the Andros Isle Clubhouse, where 20 outstanding high school seniors received awards. Black and gold decorations were visible throughout the ballroom. Fresh sunflower-crowned, pineapple centerpieces were strikingly eye-catching, and floating, lighted tea candles, glowing in water, added additional warmth to the beautiful evening. The students heard inspiring messages of congratulations and encouragement from speakers such as Royal Palm Beach Vice Mayor Selena Smith and School Board Member Marcia Andrews. Keynote speaker Minister Hopelyn West delivered a motivational message to the students and to the entire audience. CAFCI’s Student Assistance Committee is chaired by Nadine White-Boyd and Junette Powell and includes committee members Leonie Escoffery, Audrey Gordon, Clover Henry-Gilroy, Kathy Maragh, Alpha McDonald and Alliseen Kelly-Rambeau. CAFCI is proud to have donated $112,490 to local high school seniors over the past 25 years.
