We believe you should savor every sweet step forward, in a tough struggle. In that vein, we were delighted to read the news story in today’s issue of the Star Ledger that reported that “A popular, decades-old mental health counseling program will continue operating in 90 New Jersey school districts, at least temporarily, under a compromise that will allow Governor Phil Murphy‘s administration to move forward with a separate plan to create a state wide network of treatment services off-campus.” This is great news! We are grateful to Dr. Kristina Nicosia and Ms. Elizabeth Asamoah, for the leadership in the efforts to maintain the Community Teen Center in the Highland Park High School/Middle School. We also thank our vocal partners in this advocacy, NJ State Senator Peter Diegnan and Highland Park Mayor Gayle Brill Mittler. And that’s why Dr. Nicosia delivered a bunch of cream filled cupcakes to Ms. Asamoah today!
Community members came together to share with Senator Diegnan the importance of saving funding for the Teen Center.
