A big check has been given to Sean Barthel of Hialeah, the recipient of the NextEra Energy Scholarship for Black Students at SECME.        Ten South Florida class of 2022 high school graduates from Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties were awarded a $20,000 scholarship for Black students in STEM from Florida Power & Light Company and parent company NextEra Energy. The scholarship, called the NextEra Energy Scholarship for Black Students at SECME, is a merit award of up to $20,000 for college-bound high school seniors who have at least one year of experience volunteering at the Southeast Consortium for Minorities in Engineering and plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two- or four-year college or university for the entire 2022-2023 academic year.
