ASPIRA Ceremoniously Breaks Ground!

EMH-Groundbreaking-StudentsIt's official!

ASPIRA ceremoniously began to break ground for the construction of its new ASPIRA Arts DE/CO Charter School building on Wednesday, February 12. Attendees gathered together on a beautiful Miami morning in the heart of the Wynwood District to celebrate the actualization of the long awaited project.

"This is a day filled with many emotions," said George Cabrera, ASPIRA's President/CEO. "We are seeing a dream finally come true," he explained.

EMH-Groundbreaking-GuestsThe Groundbreaking Ceremony featured guest speakers such as City of Miami Mayor Tomás Regalado, Ronald Blackburn, President of the ASPIRA National Association, Manuel Orosa, City of Miami Chief of Police, as well as representatives from the offices of Commissioner Audrey Edmonson and Senator Marco Rubio.

In the audience were many community leaders and supporters of ASPIRA who have contributed to its success for over 30 years.

Special tribute was paid to one such devotee, the late Dr. Alicia Baró, who was one of the original founders of ASPIRA of Florida in 1981. Dr. Baró dedicated her life to the fight for social justice and the political and educational equality for all minorities. In order to preserve her legacy, the ceremony included the unveiling of a street sign, named Dr. Alicia Baró Way in her honor, to be placed at North Miami Avenue and NW 34th Street.

EMH-Groundbreaking-BaroStreetSignThe event was a celebration of the organization's future and the honoring of Alicia Baró, a woman whose past paved the road for institutions, such as ASPIRA, that share her mission and vision.

"The beginning of construction on our new building is the fulfillment of our longstanding promise and commitment to the Wynwood community to always be an educational beacon for youth and families," said George Cabrera, President/CEO of ASPIRA of Florida. "We're excited to see our plans come to life and give our students the best possible academic resources, a cause for which Alicia Baró was a great advocate," Cabrera added.

The ASPIRA Eugenio Maria De Hostos Charter School building is tentatively set to be completed by 2015 and will boast a new, modern look, as well as an educational program focused on technology, communications, arts and media. In addition, the school building will be home to a new City of Miami Police Net Office, offering students, parents and the community safety and security.

"It was ASPIRA that taught me the correct path to follow in life," said ASPIRA Board Chair, Edward Hernandez, when sharing the impact ASPIRA had on his own life years ago.

"This is what we hope to offer our students, a future," he added.
