On Thursday evening at their monthly meeting, the Broward League of Cities awarded a local student with a scholarship towards college for his involvement in his City.
Coral Springs Charter School Senior Gregory Ohl received $1,000 towards college from the Broward League, and was chosen because of his dedication to his school, community, and his interest in government and public service according to Commissioner Dan Daley.
Presenting the award was Shelley Eichner, Chair of the League Scholarship Committee.
Vice Mayor Larry Vignola said he couldn’t speak highly enough about the Coral Springs student and Senior Class President who interns for him. “Greg is one of the smartest, brightest kids I’ve ever met and I’m extremely proud of him.”
Vignola said that for two years Gregory was a coordinator for the Teen Political Forum and throughout the year he has attended almost all of their City commission meetings. “He’s always promoting City events,” he said. Vignola even wrote a recommendation letter for the scholarship.
Besides interning for the Vice Mayor a year ago, Gregory started interning for Representative Jared Moskowitz during the school year and will be attending the University of Florida next fall.
