Our first full year at The Rich Center came to a close at the end of spring term classes at Youngstown State University in mid-May. Samantha Russo and her students said their sad goodbyes after spending many wonderful weeks working together. Samantha has developed into a wonderful TRAP instructor during her tenure there.
We had numerous opportunities to visit the program in action during the spring along with several visitors, and were always welcomed warmly by the Rich Center staff and administrators. We’ve been invited to continue our work at Rich Center next year, with hopes for including more students. Many thanks to the Rich Center teachers/aides, parents, and participating students, administrators Georgia Backus, Renee McConnell and Casey Annico, and Samantha Russo, our TRAP instructor, for everything they did to make this such a great year!
