It is with great appreciation that Mayor & Council recognized Andrea Marron for her volunteerism in the community of Palmetto Bay during Palmetto Bay’s Community Clean-up between April 10 and April 24, 2021. Volunteering of an individual’s time and resources is an essential part of the Village’s spirit. Volunteers show every day through their actions that they truly care about their communities and the people who live in them. Andrea Marron has done an exemplary job in committing her time and energy in performing a Village-wide clean-up by collecting and logging trash that was collected during the Village Earth Day series of events. She kept Palmetto Bay beautiful and clean by collected an estimated 800 pounds of trash. The Village of Palmetto Bay is fortunate of your volunteerism to the community.
We know Palmetto Bay's Got Talent which is why the two nominees for the 2021 Mayor's Environmentalist of the Year Award were also recognized. Liede DeValdivielso and Terri Stephen are most deserving of this recognition for their notable efforts and willingness to promote within our community environmental stewardship and innovation in order to protect our natural resources in the
Village of Palmetto.
The Village also recognized Bright Adventures Academy, LLC for their investment in our community, their service and for engaging children in a creative curriculum while being cared for.
Lastly, Council recognized Harry Nerenberg on his retirement from teaching at Miami Palmetto Bay Senior High School. The Village is forever thankful for the great environment that he cultivated for both learning and teaching, for forging positive and supportive relationships with community members and other organizations to ensure all students receive the quality education that they deserve.
Thank you for your many contributions in education over the years and we hope that your legacy will continue to resonate not only within the walls of Miami Palmetto, but also with the minds of students, parents, and teachers in the community for the years to come.
