This past June, 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.

Save the date! If you share our belief that all young people should have equal opportunity to pursue their educational goals and dreams, join us on Thursday, June 4, 2020 at Hilton Mystic for the 2nd Annual Caps & Gowns Dinner. With a caring, experienced staff, Higher Edge creates a relationship and trusting partnership with every student so that they have the tools and mentoring they need to navigate this positive path to a bright future. Come to support our current students and to celebrate our college graduates.
