On Tuesday, December 6, the City Commission recognized the J.P. Taravella Football Team for winning the Mayor’s Cup against Coral Springs High on November 4.
“We are looking forward to the future and hopefully being back here again next year,” Principal Shawn Cerra said.
Then, the Commission proclaimed the week of December 15 – 21, 2012 as “Kreul Classic Week” with the High School Basketball Tournament celebrating its 22nd year in the City of Coral Springs. The Reilly Foundation originally started the Kreul Classic as a memorial to the late James P. Kreul and Kerri-Lynn Tooze. Over the years, the Kreul Classic has provided 58 four-year academic tuition scholarships to Florida Atlantic University and exposed nearly 17,000 children representing 25 states, Canada and the Bahamas to our fine City and one of the nation’s premier High School Basketball Tournaments.
“We could have never done this without the support of the City and certainly all the volunteers involved,” Jim Reilly said.
Lastly, the City Commission recognized Best Buy for sponsoring the Youth Video Game Challenge in October, as well as recognizing students Mark Papaleo and Mark Whittingham who came in first and second place in the challenge.
“This is a perfect example of the City partnering with our business community,” Commissioner Larry Vignola said. “I want to thank Best Buy for partnering with us and it’s something we look forward to doing again in the future.”
