"My goal for the future is to become a mechanical engineer working around the world and not in one consistent place. That may be a bold dream, but I have always been one to enjoy traveling and not staying stationary in a specific location."

[Politics]  Singleton Wants Greater School Board Collaboration
Jacob Ogles, jacob.ogles@srqme.com

Dawnyelle Singleton got in on the ground level at Visible Men Academy and helped establish programs at the Manatee County charter school. Now she hopes to improve the educational opportunities available in her home county as a member of the Sarasota County School Board.

The Sarasota High School graduate and experienced educator qualified last week to challenge incumbent School Board member Bridget Ziegler for her District 1 seat. Upset about discord ay School Board meetings in recent years, she wants the district to refocus its energies.

“If the board cannot get along to the point where they can conduct business, that is an issue to me,” she said. “My goal is to collaborate with fellow School Board members, to advance student outcomes for our children, teachers and school communities. Getting along with the board is my first priority. We won’t always agree on everything, but it’s important the School Board has a united front, and that the board is presented to the community as working together.”

Singleton has been a substitute art teacher in Sarasota schools, but leaned heavily on her years working with VMA co-founder Neil Phillips on programming for an all-boys charter school largely serving a minority population. Her work included finding speakers and mentors to work with the academy.

“I would identify male members of community, often Black and Brown men who were doing good things and had interesting careers, who would talk to the boys,” she said. “These male mentors would come and talk to them about careers, answer questions but also have enrichment for the education component in the day as well.”

Of note, the school has been graded by the state ranging from A to F since its opening. Phillips resigned from the academy last year.

Singleton pushed back somewhat on criticism from the Republican Party of Sarasita tying Democratic candidates in local school board races to critical race theory and gender controversy, both issues being tackled by Gov. Ron DeSantis in the Governor’s race this year. DeSantis has endorsed Ziegler.

Singleton, who would be the first Black person elected to the Sarasota School Board, felt raising issues of critical race theory was injecting a nongermane topic. “As we all know, critical race theory has never been taught in the district,” she said. “Now it has been outlawed and is a non-issue. Frankly, it is a dog whistle for racism and we need to elevate the conversation.”

Discussing matters like school choice, Singleton notably takes no issue with the use of vouchers or with having public charter schools.

“Most people will attend a public school. When I was growing up, we didn’t have options. Your district school was a good school and that’s where you went to,” she said. “Now parents do have more choices, but I think all children, no matter the ZIP code they grew up in, should have access to great education… Vouchers give parents a choice, and I am all for that because parents are the experts on their children’s lives.”

And she doesn’t embrace all parts of a “parents’ rights” movement dominating headlines in many school races in Florida this year. She voiced skepticism at a parental rights bill dubbed the “don’t say gay” bill by critics. She said that law and recent others only address rights parents already had but distract with other topics.

 

 

  

[Water Sports]  A Trip Down Memory Lane with Siesta Key Aqua Adventure
Dylan Campbell, dylan@srqme.com

This weekend, take a trip down memory lane with Siesta Key Aqua Adventure’s newest attraction - Bigfoot’s Bumper Boat Adventure. The attraction, aptly named after the company’s mascot - a seven-foot statue of Bigfoot - is as ingenious as it is silly and exactly what it sounds like - bumper cars, but on the water. The idea for the novelty came from the company’s owner, Richard Campbell, wanting to fill a void within the watersports space. “In the state of Florida, you have to be at least 16 years of age to operate watercraft - leaving a large demographic of people that want to drive them, but can’t. I started doing research and found out that as long as you have less than 10 horsepower and the vessels are under a certain size there’s no age restriction,” says Campbell

The process of bringing bumper boats to Siesta Key, however, was a bit more involved than the activity. The bumper boats--classified as rigid inflatables--had to become registered vessels in the state of Florida and pass all safety and licensing regulations. “For it to be a registered vessel, we had to have the manufacturer customize it for our specific use and safety needs. While these types of boats have been around for years, no one has tried to get these registered and titled to be used in state waters,” says Campbell.

Another part of the customization process was ensuring that the bumper boats were environmentally friendly. “We use clean-burn, eco-friendly, Honda 4-stroke engines to power the boats. We also worked with the Florida Wildlife Commision to create custom-built prop cages to ensure the propellers would never damage the environment or in some odd case, the wildlife around it,” says Campbell

The bumper boats have three seats with room for one driver (over 50 pounds) and two passengers (under 50 pounds each). They are in operation for 30 minute time slots from 10am to 7:30 pm and are reservation only after 4pm.

[Recognition Given]  Outstanding Youth Leadership in Our Community: Diego M.

Our community is filled with many incredible young people doing such amazing things. This summer, we are featuring some of these young people in our Thursday Family & Education edition. Each of the students we are highlighting has been chosen as one of this year’s SRQ Magazine’s top youth leaders based on their values, determination and outstanding achievements in different aspects of their lives in and out of school.

Diego M, a senior at Pine View School, joined the Fab Lab in his sophomore year at the urging of his friend who was a current volunteer. He has taken part in a variety of programs, including the RC Car Committee, the Student Proposals and Education Committee (SPEC), and the Student Community Innovation Project (SCIP). Outside of school and the Fab Lab, he enjoys playing frisbee and soccer as well as working on engineering projects for the fun of it. This past year he served as the Team Captain of his high school robotics team, Jungle Robotics, and after a year of not meeting due to COVID-19, they came back stronger than ever and won the Judge’s Award for their robot design. Diego spends much of his time mentoring younger volunteers so they will be equipped to continue the legacy he helped build. Diego was also part of the inaugural Student Community Innovation Program class in 2020 where he helped build an educational website teaching elementary school students about COVID-19 safety.

We asked Diego about his goads for the future.

"My goal for the future is to become a mechanical engineer working around the world and not in one consistent place," he said. "That may be a bold dream, but I’ve always been one to enjoy traveling and not staying stationary in a specific location. I want to get out there and see the world and do the things that I love like engineering and frisbee and making friends and being spontaneous. There’s so much to do, and I’m excited for my future experiences. I also hope to establish new friendships along the way while keeping my old ones and to leave impacts on the communities that I visit, create, and learn from."
