As the holiday season is upon us, the feeling of red, green, merry and bright is evident at Neva King Cooper Educational Center. The students of Neva King Cooper Educational Center, a Miami-Dade County Public School for students with intellectual disabilities and physically challenged children and adolescents, have acquired a Santa and his Elves; the Sunshine Corvette Club.
The Sunshine Corvette Club has been providing the students at Neva King Cooper Educational Center holiday gifts as well as monetary donations for the past twenty-seven years. The Sunshine Corvette Club is always escorted by their 6 feet tall elf, Ms. Connie Kostyra, who is a retired employee with Miami-Dade County Public School and conceptualized this activity 27 years ago and brought the Sunshine Corvette Club to Neva King Cooper.
The Sunshine Corvette Club is joined in its efforts by various sponsors; Bomnin Chevrolet West Kendall, Miami Dade Police and Fire Department personnel, as well as the Heat Dancers, and mascot “Burnie” which is always a favorite of the children.
Neva King Cooper Educational Center is a specialized center school in the Miami-Dade County Public Schools that focuses on educating students with significant intellectual disabilities between the ages of 3 to 22. The separate day school provides a variety of programs and services for the students, families, and caregivers.
