Fairfield County Bank sponsored 20 Carver students to experience a fun and motivational evening with Rebecca Lobo! The UCONN legend and Basketball Hall of Famer visited Stepping Stones for a VIP reception followed by a personal and inspirational speech about the importance of balancing academics, family, and sports to achieve her goals. The audience had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to ask Rebecca questions during a Q&A session in the museum's Multimedia Gallery.
Proceeds from the event support the museum's summer learning programs. These programs work to educate the Rebecca Lobos of tomorrow by providing children from underserved backgrounds with little to no formal preschool learning, literacy- and language-rich learning experiences that will prepare them for entering kindergarten in the fall.
