This Wednesday, August 15, approximately 35 new teachers from Lauderdale Lakes Middle and Boyd Anderson High schools will take a bus tour of Lauderdale Lakes. The tour is being organized and hosted by Commissioner Hazelle Rogers, who will also be joined by Patricia Williams, chair of the city’s school advisory board.
“These teachers are stakeholders in our community and we would like for them to feel welcome,” says Commissioner Rogers. “This tour will give them an opportunity to see the renaissance underway in the Lauderdale Lakes community, where our children live and the homes that they are coming from.”
The tour will leave from the main entrance of Boyd Anderson at noon, and will include visits to the city’s residential communities, new parks and swimming pool, as well as projects such as the Bella Vista Town Center currently underway and the recently completed Shoppes of St. Croix.
“After seeing the new Lauderdale Lakes, maybe some of the new teachers will consider moving into the city,” states Rogers.
The tour will follow Commissioner Rogers’ 9 a.m. presentation at Boyd Anderson’s Student Leadership Conference at the Courtyard Marriot Fort Lauderdale North/Cypress Creek, 2440 W. Cypress Creek Road. The all day conference was developed for Boyd Anderson’s student leaders to enhance their leadership potential and to equip them with new skills and strategies to help their fellow students succeed academically and socially. The conference is a component of the Boyd Anderson PASS© Partnership to Advance School Success program, conducted by the Council for Educational Change and sponsored by local business Steve Wasserman.
