Miami Palmetto High rising senior Adetola Alonge won the Brandeis Book Award at Palmetto’s end of the year awards ceremony. Book awards are given to outstanding juniors.

While “whitehouse.gov” has some character, in terms of charm and personality, it pales in comparison to our UK counterpart. According to Business Insider, as of late 2017... Read More »
