We just learned that Tonie Bennett, who began her experience with Carver in our Youth Development Program at Brien McMahon High School, has been named to the Dean’s List at the University of Hartford. Toni also worked at Carver as a counselor for our Summer Enrichment Program for the past several years.
Now in its sixth decade, the University of Hartford sits proudly on a 350-acre main campus that includes parts of Hartford, West Hartford, and Bloomfield, Conn. It provides a beautifully landscaped vista with grassy expanses and wooded areas with a branch of the Park River winding through it. Despite its bucolic setting and relatively small size, UHart offers a dynamic student experience charged with diversity in its programs, activities, and student body. International and U.S. students of color comprise nearly 30 percent of all undergraduates.
We are so proud of Tonie and all that she is now accomplishing at the University of Hartford!
