United Way of Central & Northeastern CT thanks Environmental Sciences Magnet School at Mary Hooker

 
Hartford Public Schools stepped up for the community with their United Way Community Campaign.  ESM at Mary Hooker led the way with the highest percentage of participation with the support from staff and faculty lead by Peter Dart, Principal.  With enthusiasm and commitment ESM staff posted outstanding results.   Mr. Dart, faculty, staff and students were presented with the official 2012 United Way Campaign trophy from United Way President and CEO Susan Dunn.  Launched in 2012, the friendly competition will generate excitement each year, as the school with the highest participation will receive their very own award.  Who will win it in 2013?
