TITLE
RESOLUTION CO-DESIGNATING QUAYSIDE BOULEVARD FROM BISCAYNE BOULEVARD TO EAST DIXIE HIGHWAY AS “MIAMI MILITARY ACADEMY BOULEVARD”

BODY
WHEREAS, Miami Military Academy was originally established in 1924 as Coral Gables Military Academy by George E. Merrick, who sought Colonel Jesse Williams, an Arkansas educator, to head the school; and
WHEREAS, in 1933, the school was relocated to northeast Miami-Dade County near the Village of Miami Shores and was renamed “Miami Military Academy”; and
WHEREAS, by 1959, enrollment at Miami Military Academy had grown to more than 300 under Colonel F. R. (Reed) Williams, who expanded the school’s academic scope to include a broader subject range and more formalized military instruction; and
WHEREAS, in the following decades, the Miami Military Academy developed an international student body representing nearly every Central and South American and Caribbean country, and almost every state in the eastern U.S.; and
WHEREAS, Miami Military Academy graduated some of the finest men and women for our community and for this nation; and
WHEREAS, in 1974, after serving the community for 50 years, the Miami Military Academy closed and the land was sold to the Muss family for $7 million dollars; and
WHEREAS, this Board would like to recognize the Miami Military Academy with this codesignation; and
WHEREAS, Quayside Boulevard from Biscayne Boulevard to East Dixie Highway is a County road located in unincorporated Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, this proposed codesignation is located in County Commission District 4,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board:
Section 1. Having considered this matter at a public hearing, co-designates Quayside Boulevard from Biscayne Boulevard to East Dixie Highway as “Miami Military Academy Boulevard”.
Section 2. Directs the Clerk of the Board to transmit a certified copy of this resolution to the U.S. Postal Service, the Traffic Signals and Signs Division of the Public Works Department and Land Development Division of the Public Works Department, the Miami-Dade Police Department, and the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department.
