Spotlight
Andre Maitre

In the fall semester of 2010, Andre Maitre will begin his first semester at New York City College of Technology as a Graphic Art's Management major. "If you would have told me a year ago that I would have been going to college this year, I wouldn't believe you," Maitre said.

 In December 2009, the 26-year-old Bronx native received his GED from Highbridge Community Life Center. With the help of Highbridge counselors, he was admitted into the CUNY fall class in April 2010. "Before, the more I sought options the more doors closed," Maitre continued. "At Highbridge, the more I tried, the more I was rewarded."
