You made our evening honoring Carol Comeau & Building support for 90% by 2020 a memorable one.
On May 31st, students, parents, teachers, principals, police officers, soldiers, senators, friends and family added their voice to our message of thanks to retiring school superintendent, Carol Comeau, and raised funds to support the movement she was instrumental in launching – 90% graduation by the year 2020.
Billed as “A single night to honor 38 years of inspiration” the gala festivities included moving tributes and humorous anecdotes shared from the stage and on screen, rousing cheers by the Barlett High School Cheer Squad and songs performed by the East High School choir. A “yearbook” was available for guests to create a personal message for Carol.
The monies raised at the event in support of Carol’s continuing legacy through 90% by 2020 will go directly to surrounding youth and their families with the right supports at the right times so that every child has the opportunities and tools to succeed in school and beyond.
