Thank you, Mr. Cronin, for inviting me to your class today. The Board of Hope High Dollars for Scholars has worked hard to provide scholarships benefit Hope High students so it’s wonderful to meet some prospective applicants. I hope those of you who read Michelle Obama’s book, “Becoming”, will let me know how you like it. If anyone plans to look at colleges in the Boston area, stay in touch and if I can connect you with another Hope grad at that school, I will.
