WYBC “I Rise” Student of the Month!

WYBC “I Rise” Student of the Month!

94.3 WYBC, New Haven Public Schools, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Carol Birks and Mayor Toni Harp are celebrating this month’s “I Rise” Student of the Month!

Education can and should empower all students to rise up and pursue their dreams. Each month 94.3 WYBC will highlight a student who went the extra mile in pursuit of something extraordinary.

The segment is called “I Rise” because it highlights a student who rises above adversity, tackles a challenge or simply shines. We will recognize these incredible, hard-working young people, not just on the radio, but every day in our homes and in the community.


This Month We Honor:

Diana Perez

Diana is an 8th grade honors student from Barnard School. She is a member of the National Junior Honors Society, Squash Haven and The Photography Club. Diana has very good school attendance, plays flute for her school band and her favorite subject is English. She hopes to someday be a journalist.

Job well done Diana!
