FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida – Daniel P. Foganholi was sworn in as a member of the School Board of Broward County on Wednesday in Fort Lauderdale. He was chosen by Gov. Ron DeSantis.
Foganholi was chosen by DeSantis on April 19, 2022, to represent District 5 on the board starting May 3, 2022, after Rosalind Osgood left to serve in the state senate.
After his term ended in November, DeSantis gave him another chance to represent District 1 on the board. In November, voters chose Rod Velez, but he was never sworn in because he was waiting for answers about a 1995 case of aggravated battery. When it was time for him to take office, DeSantis said that his seat was empty.
Foganholi had just finished a short term on the school board. He had been chosen by DeSantis to replace Rosalind Osgood in District 5 and had just finished that term. Osgood was chosen to be a senator for the state of Florida.
Foganholi, who is from Brazil, went to Florida Atlantic University and got certificates in marketing and business management. He is also the head of the Christian New Generations Children’s Ministries’ legislative affairs.
Foganholi is back on the school board with Lori Alhadeff, Torey Alston, Brenda Fam, Debra Hixon, Jeff Holness, Sarah Leonardi, Nora Rupert, and Allen Zeman.
