Here is a picture of local philanthropist Rose Ellen Greene donated $2 million for Education in Little Haiti.
To facilitate the groundbreaking partnership between Florida International University (FIU) and Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS), local philanthropist Rose Ellen Greene, a Senior Trustee at the University of Miami has donated $2 million. The joint Education Effect program (the partnership between FIU and M- DCPS is known as the Education Effect) seeks to connect the historic Little Haiti community with university expertise, resources and research-based intervention programs addressing social and educational needs. The Education Effect was first launched at Miami Northwestern Senior High School in Liberty City in 2011. The gift of $2 million is the largest donation received so far to Education Effect and that came from Rose Ellen Greene. She is a longtime volunteer at Jesse J. McCrary Jr. Elementary School. To celebrate this receipt of great contribution, FIU and M-DCPS hosted a check presentation and ice cream party with students, community leaders and parents at McCrary elementary on May 31.
