It’s been a great month for Florida Career College Pembroke Pines Campus Student Ambassadors.
Florida Career College (FCC) Student Ambassadors of the Pembroke Pines Campus held a month-long school supply fundraiser to benefit local Broward County School, West Hollywood Elementary. The FCC Student Ambassadors delivered a huge crate of school supplies consisting of backpacks, notebooks, pencils, pens, crayons, and glue; essentially everything an elementary student would need during the academic year.

Rosie Barrett, Juana Valdes, Ebony Patterson, Sharon Callendar, Shalonda Richardson, Tierra Cummings, Sylvia Klee, Chelsea Clarke, Donald Dubuisson, Gisella Scarpati and Tania Bernet organized the drive along with Margaret McCraw, Pembroke Pines Campus Library Assistant and mentor to the Student Ambassadors.
“The Principal Aimee Zekofsky and staff at West Hollywood Elementary were very excited and appreciative of the fundraising efforts done by our ambassadors,” said FCC-Pembroke Pines Executive Director James Branham. “At the Pines Campus we believe in encouraging our students to find opportunities to get involved.”
“We are thinking of setting up an outreach program with West Hollywood Elementary where the FCC Ambassadors volunteer their time reading books to the children,” said Margaret McCraw, Pembroke Pines Campus Library Assistant.
During the month-long supply drive, the Ambassadors posted flyers and unwaveringly communicated to students, faculty and staff about their commitment to aiding the students in need of back to school supplies at West Hollywood Elementary. “They are an awesome group of students and they did a great job of organizing and marketing the drive,” said Jim Branham. “Overall, a very successful effort…..very proud of the Student Ambassadors at the Pines Campus.”
