Scorpio played host to twelve Middle School students and their mentors from the Mirror Image Leadership Academy on July 15, 2021. The Mirror Image Leadership Academy (MILA) is a non-profit located in Gainesville, formed by a group of dedicated community leaders after years of research and development. The program consists of a 3-year leadership development experience for rising 7th graders, primarily focused on, but not limited to, African American males in Alachua County with a mission is to help young men discover for themselves the leader that lies within through innovative and experiential learning while expanding possibilities through exposure with the vision of positively impacting the generational trajectory of black families.
Students joined Domenic Scorpio for lunch and learned more about construction management and how he created Scorpio. After enjoying lunch and some games in the Scorpio Rec Room, the young men were invited on a tour of the newly Redesigned and Redevelopment Howard Bishop Middle School, scheduled to open for classes this fall.
Scorpio is committed to further involvement with this inspiring organization and looks forward to next summer’s engagement.
