Thank You!

On behalf of AHM Youth & Family Services, I would like to thank the following individuals who were responsible for making this year’s Project Graduation possible. The on-boarding volunteers: RHAM Administrators, Principal Penny Brysgel, Assistant Principal, Chris Mader, and Interim Assistant Principal, Laurie Vega-Boulay. Our parents and community members who helped with the bus onboarding process: Maura Baker, Heather Little, Meghan Ford, Jeri Gauthier, Machel Gauthier, Charlotte Giaccone, Ines Morris, Brenda Keleher, Jenn Kischell, Terry Laliberti, Jody Sandberg, Kate Williams, Jenn Wood. The event chaperones: Carri-Ann Bell, Brian Byrne, Heidi Bryne, Nancy Dooley, Machel Gauthier, Jeri Gauthier, Selina Guerriero, Eric Forrest, Alan Laliberti (EMT), Maria Morelli-Wolfe, Rosetta Popolizio, Charles Totten and Officer Tom Topulos. The following local business owners: Michelle Nicholson of the Flour Girl Café (Hebron) for hosting our Tip A Musician Fundraiser, Julie Veilleux (Amston) owner of Simply Soy Candles, who partnered with AHM for two fundraisers this past academic year and Amy Ordonez owner of Studio 13 (East Hampton) who led our Paint Night Fundraiser. And, the many parents and community members who donated raffle prizes through our online Amazon gift list – the grads were very touched by your generosity and kindness! One hundred and twenty-eight RHAM High School graduates chose to attend a celebration free of alcohol and substances on the night of their graduation at Revolutions in South Windsor. AHM Youth & Family Services is proud to coordinate and give this opportunity to our community to keep our children safe on a night that statistically can be very dangerous. AHM is extending the invitation to RHAM High School junior and senior parents to join the Project Graduation Committee for the “Class of 2024”. Please contact Jenn Boehler at or 860-228-9488 Ext. 22 to learn how you can help out!
