Joel Toledo, Albright College

Joel Toledo of East Haven, CT, came to CFS as an 8th grader to “get around different people and for a better opportunity to go to college since a lot of people don’t where I’m from.” His teachers say that Joel is a vibrant, thoughtful young man, traits that will serve him well as he prepares to study business management at Albright College next year. “CFS has made me comfortable with living with other people. Even though it took a while, my time management has improved a lot and the school has helped me become more of an extrovert.”
In addition to being a cottage prefect, a captain of the varsity basketball team and a Sodexo student employee, Joel says he is most proud of “helping others however I can at school.” He says the diversity of the school has been extremely important to him. “It is a unique situation where the minority in the outside world is a majority at the school.”

Adds his advisor, Ms. Tiffany Scott, “Joel is a hard working young man who tries to become a better and more responsible person every day. Since the 8th grade Joel has been a wonderful, team-oriented and supportive member of our CFS community.”
