Last month, Immokalee High School senior and TIF superstar, Andrea Guerrero, received an email from representatives of the Speakers Assembly of Southwest Florida. The letter said, in part, “With the concurrence of the other committee members, [we] are delighted to tell you that you have been awarded a $1,000 scholarship by the Speakers Assembly of Southwest Florida. Congratulations!”
