Ranger Good Works Hosts Annual Career City and Scholarship Fund Event at Dillard Elementary

The organization aims to empower under-resourced local school communities in South Florida.

Ranger Good Works, a nonprofit based in Fort Lauderdale, recently held its 11th Annual Career City event showcase at Dillard Elementary School in Fort Lauderdale. Over 95 local companies and organizations, 70 of which have participated for ten years, along with 200 corporate volunteers, joined together to create an unforgettable experience. The event was aimed at over 900 Dillard Elementary students and 60 students from North Fork Elementary in grades Pre-K—5, guiding them through an interactive make-shift city presentation.

The event by Ranger Good Works aims to introduce the students of Dillard Elementary to a wide range of careers and opportunities, inspiring them to dream big and reach for the stars. It is part of the nonprofit’s ongoing commitment to making a positive impact and difference in the lives of the students and faculty of Dillard Elementary.

This year’s program featured a special presentation by Ranger Good Works, who will be offering a scholarship fund to support 19-year-old J-Terra Louis. She is a former Ranger Good Works program participant and an alumna of Dillard Elementary. Louis graduated with honors from West Broward High School and is now pursuing a degree in Applied Science specializing in Information Technology at Broward College. Her passion lies in the field of Cybersecurity and Ethical Hacking. J’Terra aims to utilize advancements in science to bring justice and support to those in need. Despite being accepted to prestigious institutions, she selflessly chose to attend a school close to home to continue supporting her mother in her battle with cancer. Louis has maintained remarkable grades while serving as a prominent caretaker in her mother’s life.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
