Supporting education systems and resources that benefit ALL students.
Congresswoman Meek’s advice to young people has always been to get as much education as they possibly can. In prior years, the Carrie Meek Foundation Scholarship Program reflected her recognition of education’s critical role in transforming impoverished urban neighborhoods. The legacy also extends to higher education, with Meek’s longtime commitment to Miami Dade College honored in MDC’s Carrie Meek Entrepreneurial Education Center in Liberty City. The campus was recently authorized to offer a Bachelor in Applied Science degree in Public Safety through its School of Justice. Congresswoman Meek was also instrumental in making advanced aviation training programs available at Miami Dade College and Florida Memorial University. Through its ongoing efforts, the Foundation is continuing to build partnerships that create and expand educational opportunities.
Located in Miami Gardens, TRU Prep Academy’s mission is to stimulate, educate and motivate the minds of students, creating a road map of personal success and experiences which give students an advantage in an ever-changing global society. The Foundation supported dual-enrollment scholarships, allowing qualified students to take courses at Miami-Dade College’s Meek Entrepreneurial Education Center.
