Hope Life Skills Annual Networking Field Trip: May 24th, 2016.

Tuesday evening, May 24th, within the friendly confines of a fully catered, field level corporate suite at McCoy Stadium during a Pawtucket Red Sox game, proved once again a

perfect venue for showcasing the amazing talent, spirit and professionalism of Hope High School’s Life Skills students to so many successful businessmen and women.  For the seventh consecutive year,

the Pawtucket Red Sox have hosted the Life Skills class annual networking event.   From an impressive first pitch of the game by Valentina Gomez-Rincon, the announcement of CVS Health corporate paid summer internships for Juan Corona, Jose Orellana and Valentina as well as Travis Barbour and Valentina’s representation of Hope High School at the prestigious National Youth Leadership Forum this July in Washington, D.C. to the many additions of successful people to the Life Skills students’ personal networks, the night proved to be a multi-hit victory for all.   Moreover, the delicious food was complemented by a come from behind win for the home team.   The

Hope High brand continues to get stronger and more valuable.

The photos below tell the rest of the story.  Enjoy and be proud.
