Dr. Joy Gordon, a Palmetto Bay resident for 25 years, is the owner of the New Mirawood Academy Center for Literacy, Arts and Sciences.

Her sons Andre Gordon, who serves as Director of Theatre and Motion Pictures at Westminster Christian School, Adrian Gordon, Director of Orchestra also at Westminster and Adam Gordon, a doctor in Texas are also making us Palmetto Bay Proud!
