CORAL SPRINGS, FL - The City of Coral Springs is proud to congratulate Isabella Renert for winning second place in the Florida League of Cities “If I Were Mayor” essay contest. The Coral Springs Middle School 7th grader demonstrated a tremendous sense of leadership through her essay, where she highlights that if she were mayor for the day, she would help the homeless, make sure the city is clean and schools are safe.
“I am extremely proud of Isabella,” said Bettania Opthof, Renert’s 7th Grade Teacher. “This young lady is every teacher's dream student. To say that she is highly gifted is undeniable, but what makes her truly special is her kind heart and love of family, friends and community. With future leaders like Isabella, I feel confident that our great country will be in good hands.”
Regarding Renert’s essay, Mayor Scott Brook commented, “It is a privilege for our city to have such a bright, courageous and caring young resident who understands the value of community and the importance of protecting our residents, especially the vulnerable. Isabella is a stellar example of a youth leader with a mindset of community service.”
Once the City of Coral Springs Commission resumes in-person meetings, the Mayor plans to have her attend and formally be recognized.
