CORAL SPRINGS, FL – Eighteen students from Coral Springs and Parkland high schools have been awarded scholarship funds for the 2020-2021 academic year from the City of Coral Springs MLK Committee, in partnership with Coral Springs Community Chest, Inc.
Students selected for the funds “exemplify and embody the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s teachings on peace, racial harmony, community service and bettering the lives of others,” the City of Coral Springs said Tuesday in a news release announcing the winners.
