    The Coral Gables Community Foundation was among participants at the annual “Cavalier Wednesday” awards ceremony April 25 at Coral Gables Senior High School.

    Students from all four grades were recognized but the stars of the show were the graduating seniors. Recognized for their academic excellence, outstanding service to school and community as well as artistic, business and spoken word talent, there was much reason to celebrate.

    The Coral Gables Community Foundation, represented by Executive Director Andria Hanley, presented two scholarships at the event:

    The Ralph V. Moore Scholarship is given annually to an outstanding student who embodies the values of longtime Gables High Principal Ralph Moore (1977-1993), who passed away in August 2010. The $1,000 scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior who demonstrates not only academic excellence but also involvement in extracurricular activities and service to school and community. This award emphasizes the importance of leaving a legacy at Coral Gables Senior High.

    The 2012 winner is Armani Abreu, who has a 6.29 weighted GPA and is in the top 4% of his class. A four-year athlete in swimming and volleyball as well as NHS and IBHS, Armani has also been class president for four years. A consistent leader and doer, Armani holds true to the values Ralph Moore thought were important.

    The Lady Suzanna P. Tweed Scholarship was created to reflect her love for children and her desire to help deserving students continue their education.  Criteria include academic success and demonstrated need; the 2012 winner has a significant amount of both.  This year the funding for this $1,000 scholarship is provided by the Coral Gables Community Foundation on behalf of Lady Tweed, who passed away in 1999 at age 99.

    The 2012 winner is Jieyi Wu, who wants to become a CPA and appreciates all the support she’s receiving along the way. Jieyi helps run the school credit union, has received the Rotary Award, is a key member of the End Polio Now initiative, and stays after school every day to help make the school even better. Jieyi is a lovely young lady sure to be a successful CPA.
