As proposed by School Board Vice Chair Dr. Dorothy Bendross-Mindingall, the Miami-Dade School Board honored exemplary community organizations: International Longshoremen’s Association (ILA) Local #1416 and Nu Chapter of Chi Eta Phi Nursing Sorority, Inc.
The ILA is responsible for loading and unloading ships from across the globe and facilitating the quick turn-around of cruise ships. Longshoremen must be approved by the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and are hired based on their seniority. The non-profit organization emphasizes labor strength, progress and dedication to its members and retirees.
Chi Eta Phi Sorority, Inc. founded in 1932, is an organization of professional registered Nurses. Nu Chapter was organized with the purpose of becoming involved in the health problems of the community and to encourage the youth to attain higher education and character.
“It is always my honor to recognize the great leaders in our community who have gone beyond their organizations’ mission of service to the community and provided educational resources and scholarships to our children. These are the partners within our district that help us give our children the world,” stated Dr. Bendross-Mindingall.
