DeSantis: We will continue to carry on Dr. King’s legacy
LAUDERDALE LAKES, FLORIDA – Governor Ron DeSantis participated in a Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration Event at Piney Grove Boys Academy in Lauderdale Lakes, Florida.
Piney Grove Boys Academy is a Christian Boys School committed to assisting parents in their children’s upbringing and enhancing the physical, mental and spiritual talents of their students.
“I was honored to be at Piney Grove Boys Academy today to celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.,” said Governor DeSantis.
“Dr. King understood that our rights are not given to us by the government, but are ours by the grace of God. He fought to have everyone’s rights recognized. I don’t want to see barriers and limits to students reaching their full potential because that is not what our country is about. We will continue to carry on Dr. King’s legacy and fight to ensure that nobody will be denied an opportunity for reasons out of their control.”
Governor DeSantis was joined on his visit to Piney Grove Boys Academy by State Senator Manny Diaz Jr., State Representative Patricia Hawkins-Williams, State Representative James Bush III, State Representative Kimberly Daniels, Lauderdale Lakes Mayor Hazelle P. Rogers, Lauderdale Lakes City Commissioner Veronica Phillips, Broward County Sheriff Gregory Tony and President and CEO of Enterprise Florida Jamal Sowell.
