STRIVE programs in all three Connecticut locations celebrated another successful cycle today with graduation ceremonies in Bridgeport, Hartford and New Haven.
In New Haven, the event was even sweeter as longtime supporter United Illuminating presented the program with a check for $10,000.
Pictured above, from left, are Bridgeport graduates Jacqueline Sutton, Richard Santos, Gustave Sebabi, Timothy Rich & Peguy Jean.
STRIVE graduations feature personal recognition, as each graduate reads her or her “Praise Poem,” written as part of the training. Graduation ceremonies also include skits, remarks from trainers, and many family and friends.
The next STRIVE cycle begins August 18. For more information, contact Bridgeport STRIVE at (203) 610-8678, New Haven STRIVE at (203) 777-1720, or Hartford STRIVE at (860) 560-0351 .
