BRIDGEPORT HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS HONORED AT HCC

Four students from Bridgeport’s Central and Bassick High Schools were among 15 students from city high schools who were honored Wednesday, June 4 for completing four workshops as part of Housatonic Community College’s Bridges program. The program, undertaken as part of HCC’s Achieving the Dream initiative, seeks to smooth students’ transition from high school to college by offering students free workshops on financial aid, career planning, orientation to college and placement test preparation. The workshops are open to all students at participating schools, not just those planning to attend HCC. Shown with HCC President Anita T.
