New Broward County School Board Member Daniel P. Foganholi Sworn Into Office

The School Board of Broward County, Florida welcomed its newest member on Tuesday, May 3, 2022. Daniel P. Foganholi was sworn into office as the representative for District 5 during a ceremony at the Kathleen C. Wright Administration Center in Fort Lauderdale. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis appointed Foganholi to the position on April 29, filling the seat vacated by now State Senator Dr. Rosalind Osgood.

Foganholi said he was honored to serve the families in District 5 and be a member of the School Board.

“My parents came here from Brazil with a dream to make a better future for our family. They came to the U.S. for opportunity – and this is what opportunity looks like, this is what the American dream looks like.”

Foganholi is a design consultant who also works with the American Brazilian Coalition and is an active member of his church, Habitat for Humanity and the non-profit organization Feeding America. Foganholi earned certificates in marketing and business management from Florida Atlantic University.

Foganholi’s term as a Broward County School Board member for District 5 runs through November 2022.
