The group of professionals is dedicated to providing positive role models to Hartford kids and communities.
“We welcome over 20,000 students here today,” said Dr. Leslie Torres-Rodriguez. “We want our students to know we are here. We are with love, we are with optimism, with love, with high expectations, and making sure they are successful every day in our schools.”
