Councilwoman Fairclough-Staggers Honors Outstanding Local Graduate for Dedication to Excellence

Councilwoman Fairclough presenting award

At the June Special Council presentation, Councilwoman Patricia Fairclough-Staggers presented an award to a recent graduate from South Dade Senior High School, Miss Jonya Moore. She always dreamed of attending law school and becoming a lawyer. With that goal in mind, she studied hard, applied herself, and graduated in the top 5% of her class. Not only did she work hard to achieve a weighted GPA of 3.9, but she was also part of many clubs in school such as the Student Government Association, the Law Club, the National Honor Society, the Math Honor Society, and the Science Honor Society. She was also a cheerleader and was named prom queen at her school. 

“This is a strong young lady, who is going to move onto be a fierce woman in our community,” remarked Councilwoman Fairclough-Staggers, “I hope that she continues to dream big and knows that she is unstoppable.”

Outside of school she continued to push the limits and helped with Miami-Dade County School Board member Luisa Santos’s social media accounts all while applying for and earning scholarships to help her go to college. Jonya Moore’s mother accepted the award and recognition on her behalf. She could not be present as she was accepted and is currently at the University of Florida where she is preparing for her pre-law degree in the Fall.
