This might be cheating a bit, but the best things I've read this week I may have read over the last few months, too.
But, I'm so proud of three of my senior students who wrote fantastic enterprise pieces for their Senior Capstone course.
Alphabetically, Emily DiSalvo, Garret Reich and Jessica Simms did a wonderful job on these and they are the best things I've read this week.
Emily wrote about how zoning has affected business, neighborhoods and even activism in the Hamden neighborhood of Spring Glen. Garret's piece dug into how the City of New Haven might look ahead to how climate change will impact low income communities. And Jessica, on whose project I actually advised, looked into the rise of anti-Semitism in the area.
I couldn't be more proud of all three of these young women. The coolest thing? There were other GREAT projects in this class, too. MiriYam Judd, Lo Yarnall, Anthony Nichols, Alyssa Naumann and Matthew Bruin all did work of the highest quality.
You can read all of them here at HQNN.org, the website for the senior capstone digital newsroom.
All of these students graduate this weekend. Cheers to each of them.
