    Mystery donor gives $1 million to Miami-Dade schools in King Carter’s memory

    Mystery donor gives $1 million to Miami-Dade schools in King Carter’s memory

    On Wednesday, the Miami-Dade school district announced the anonymous donation, which will be used to support the King Carter Academy of Trade & Logistics at Miami Northwestern Senior High, a hands-on program that will prepare students for careers in a growing industry.

    The donation will also pay for the expansion of an existing trade and logistics program at Miami Central Senior High, the school King likely would have attended had he not been struck by a stray bullet in February 2016 while on his way to buy candy in his Northwest Miami-Dade apartment complex.

    “I’m thankful and I’m very blessed that we could reach out to other kids and let them have an opportunity that my child didn’t because his life was cut,” said King’s mother, Monica Smith. “He didn’t even finish first grade.”
