Great Potential Students Attend 13th Annual Empire Promise Youth Summit

In April 2017, six students from Nellie A. Thornton High School in New Rochelle attended the 13th Annual Empire Promise Youth Summit at the Desmond Hotel and Conference Center in Albany, NY. Students had the opportunity to tour college campuses, attend motivational lectures, and participate in events like salsa dancing. The students, parents, and teachers pictured above had the opportunity to meet Matilda Cuomo, National Women’s Hall of Fame inductee and mother to current NY Governor, Andrew Cuomo. Matilda Raffa Cuomo’s life has been dedicated to service, as evidenced by her longstanding role as an advocate on behalf of women, children, and families.
