Dolphins, Sun Life Honor Students, Non Profit

The Miami Dolphins made college a little more affordable for three local super achievers Thursday.

The team surprised three of its ‘Rising Star’ students with $5,000 in college scholarships, while helping Sun Life Financial award students and Florida nonprofits thousands of dollars more in grants.

Casa Valentina, ChildNet, New Horizons of Southwest Florida and Urban Youth Impact were also recognized for commitment to education at surprise awards presentations throughout South Florida on Thursday.
