Councilwoman Ávila Recognizes Local Youth Sport Teams for Achievements

Councilwoman Avila Presenting Award to Youth League

As the famous saying goes, “success doesn’t come to you, you have to work for it.” And Councilwoman Erica Ávila recognized the hard work that several Homestead youth sports teams dedicated in order to succeed. The teams recognized, at the February Special Council Presentation Ceremony, were the Dick Conley Steelers 12U Football Team, the Keys Gate Knights Varsity Cheer team and AYSO teams 12U girls, 12U boys, and 19U girls. The coaches as well as the teams received certificates of recognition presented on behalf of Councilwoman Ávila and the City Council.

“Coaches, this is in recognition of all your hard work for bringing champions home” remarked Councilwoman Ávila.  “We want our Homestead talent to come back to Homestead, so this is very important to all of us here on council to recognize our youth and our talent so that they can come back and be proud of where it all started.” 

The room was buzzing with excitement and anticipation as the teams were called up one by one to step in front of the dais to receive their Certificates of Recognition for their outstanding achievements. The coaches were also honored with their own Certificates of Recognition for teaching the future generation of Homestead to identify their strengths and work together to achieve a monumental goal.
