Strong Women, Strong Girls South Florida (along with the whole SWSG team) is still reeling with excitement about being honored with the NOVO Award last week by the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce. SWSG was honored in the under $2 million category for its excellence in delivering innovating programming in South Florida.
In the article “Chamber honors Miami’s top non-profits,” writer D. Kevin McNeir reports for The Miami Times on SWSG’s win and the over-$2 million winnner, the Posse Foundation. SWSG was proud to be honored alongside the Posse Foundation, which awards college scholarships to high-potential high school seniors in Miami.
SWSG South Florida Executive Direct Rhea Beck is quoted, saying, “We are honored to be this year’s recipient of the NOVO Award…This is really a testament to the dedication and commitment of the college women who dedicate over 12,000 hours of volunteer [service] annually to elementary school girls in Miami-Dade County. They are the backbone of the work that we do.”
