+ Resident receives U.S. citizenship
For one Longboat Key resident, facing the American flag and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance held special meaning at the Kiwanis Club of Longboat Key’s April 3 breakfast meeting.
After the pledge, Kiwanis Club member and Observer Media Group CEO Matt Walsh announced that his son-in-law, Dex Honea, recently received his U.S. citizenship.
Born in Thailand, Honea worked odd jobs to support himself and his passion for the arts in Canada. A former member of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet in Canada, Honea moved to Florida, started a landscaping business and the former Fuel Café in Sarasota. Honea, who lives on the Key with his wife, Kate, is the director of education for the Sarasota Ballet.
“It’s a great American story,” Walsh told members. “I’m proud to call him my son-in-law.”
