Celebrating at the RI State House



On June 4, nearly 80 Crusaders joined parents, College Crusade staff and board members, and honored guests to celebrate RI GEAR UP Day 2013 at the State House. Dozens of middle school and high school students came forward to receive recognition for their high participation in College Crusade programs. Governor Lincoln Chafee, Sen. Hanna Gallo, Rep. Frank Ferri, Rep. Joy Hearn, Rep. Joseph McNamara, and Chief of Staff Jennifer Wood from the Lt. Governor’s office talked about the importance of preparing for college and offered their congratulations to all the students in attendance. Our student speaker, Patricia Adegboyega, from Slater Junior High School in Pawtucket, gave an address that demonstrated what Crusader spirit and ambition are all about. After the celebration, everyone visited the RI House and Senate chambers for a formal recognition by the legislature. Congratulations to all our students for your dedication to success!
