Congratulations are in order for Palmetto Bay resident Eighteen-year-old Andrea Collins graduated from Our Lady of Lourdes Academy on Thursday, May 24, 2012, having never missed a day of school since kindergarten, which is quite an accomplishment. Her proud parents are Palmetto Bay residents Maria Kesti, mother and Michael Kesti, her step-father.
Andrea is also active in her community. She started the Caps for Cancers foundation, which provides caps for chemotherapy patients. Anyone attending nearly any event put on by the Rotary Club of Perrine-Cutler Ridge/Palmetto Bay would have seen Andrea hard at work volunteering. Excelling in school, She earned membership in four honor societies; National Honor Society, Thespian Honor Society, Spanish Honor Society, and Tri-M Honor Society.
Congratulations to Andrea and the class of 2012.
