CAPSS Award Recipients

Thompson students recognized for excellence in and out of the classroom KILLINGLY – Praised for their work in and out of the classroom, six Thompson students were recognized Tuesday night for their service and leadership in the community, actions that make them role models for other students.

June Ferraro takes after the two women she was named after who demonstrated all of the qualities and values of a role model and leader. Through her actions of kindness, thoughtfulness, generosity and hard work, June leads by example and is following in the footsteps of her namesake. She takes pride in her endeavors both in and outside of the classroom and always puts forth her best effort. She has a...
