Congrats to Tiffany David, recent recipient of a $1,500 scholarship from Florida Gamma Omicron, the Sarasota chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa, an international honorary women’s educators organization.

‘Twas a welcome bit of good fortune, too.

For nearly two decades Tiffany ran Childlike Productions, a successful Bradenton-based entertainment company specializing in face painters, airbrush artists and balloon twisters for birthday parties, corporate events and so forth.

Then the pandemic hit.

“We had to cancel months and months of events that went into years,” she said. “Sitting at home was not for me. I wanted to find something to keep myself busy. I found PACE.”

That is the PACE Center for Girls in Manatee County, which provides year-round free education for girls 11-18, with counseling and life skills development in a trauma-informed, gender-responsive environment.
