The Bushnell, Hartford
That time of year is coming – the time to honor three community leaders who provide light and guidance to the rest of us. We are very pleased to honor three outstanding women in our region at this year’s Polaris Awards taking place on October 10 at The Bushnell. They come from very different circumstances and have chosen very different ways to lead, but they share the common commitment to cultivate the next generation of leaders.
Candida Flores, executive director of Family Life Education, has dedicated her professional and volunteer energies to serving youth, particularly those in greatest need of support.
Olivia Ilano-Davis, founder and artistic director of Spectrum In Motion, has offered city youth with opportunities to become more confident and collaborative leaders through dance.
Judy Keane turned tragedy into triumph by starting a foundation that serves Wethersfield children in the name of her husband who died in the World Trade Center attack on 9/11.
