ROBERT PARKER: Just one woman with a vision has mobilized the entire Miami-Dade community in support of our children. Frederica Wilson, founder of 5000 Role Models of Excellence Project. She is now running for Congressional District 17. Wouldn't be a wonderful world if every state had a 5000 Role Models of Excellence program? When she gets to Congress, that is exactly what will happen.
HORACE HORD: There are thousands upon thousands children who have received a great education and now have a promising future through the work of Frederica Wilson. Her dedication, her passion, her commitment to the advancement of youth makes her an excellent candidate for Congress.
LARRY HANDFIELD: Senator Wilson, a school principal. Senator Wilson, a successful businesswoman and CEO of her own foundation, the 5000 Role Models of Excellence Project, which she founded, and has awarded more than $5 million for the boys of Miami-Dade County Public Schools. Her work shows her effort. Her leadership shows her vision. That is what distinguishes her from all the rest.
