Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 30

The Girlfriends of Melrose trip trip to the University of Florida was awesome! The girls were scientists, news anchors, film makers, and radio hosts! We toured the facility, visited classrooms, ate lunch with scholars, and had a true college experience. We even met Dalia Dangerfield from Bay News 9.
