94.3 WYBC, New Haven Public Schools, Interim Superintendent of Schools Dr. Reginald Mayo and Mayor Toni Harp are looking for the next "I Rise" Student!
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.
If you know a child deserving of this honor, submit an “I Rise” nomination form, click here to the NHPS Communications Dept. Make sure you make the effort to let them know how proud you are of their efforts, they could be the next "I Rise" Student. Together we can help all Kids Rise!
