In June 2019, community leaders, students, families and friends attended Higher Edge’s Inaugural Caps & Gowns Event to celebrate 21 Higher Edge Success Program students who graduated from college and to honor Higher Edge Founder Chris Soto! It was a wonderful, heartfelt evening as students shared their stories and achievements. Many thanks to our event sponsors who made the evening possible: Atlantic Broadband, Chelsea Groton Bank, Connecticut College, Dominion Energy, Eastern Connecticut State University and L& M Hospital.
