CfJJ's Leadership Celebration at the Boston Bar Association was a tremendous success! More than 130 animated guests joined us for an exciting program, delicious refreshments, and the opportunity to connect with other juvenile justice advocates, practitioners and supporters from across the state.
Particular thanks to our honoree, Scott Harshbarger, whose progressive innovations on behalf of children and families were a hallmark of his distinguished career in public service, and to our keynote speaker, Vinnie Schiraldi, a former juvenile justice policy advocate who has taken on the challenge of running complex justice agencies. They are both shining examples of what real leadership can accomplish.
Finally, thanks to the members of the Madison Park Technical and Vocational High School Culinary Club, who prepared and served the delicious hors d'oeuvres. It was a special treat to have such talented and gracious teens taking part in our Celebration.
