Breakthrough Student Monericka Semeran Wins Brodsky Prize!
Monericka Semeran, a Breakthrough student and a senior at Manchester High School Central, has won the inaugural Brodsky Prize. This $5,000 cash award recognizes journalistic excellence and "out-of-the-box efforts and innovation".

Monericka moved to the US from Haiti at the age of 8, without speaking any English. She was a dedicated student of the Breakthrough program in which she excelled both academically and personally. Monericka returned as a Summer Program Assistant and a School Year Teacher for the program.

Serving as co-editor-in-chief of Central's school newspaper, she has written editorials and commentary. “Through working for the paper, I have developed principles, learned what it truly means to give your all to something, and I have been lucky enough to witness the fruits of my labor every month when we publish an issue.”

She will be attending Vassar College in the Fall where she will study international relations and write for the college newspaper. We are so proud of Monericka!
Help Support Our Students!
Students are arriving next week and your support can help us reach our fundraising goal and give them an amazing summer. Our fiscal year ends in less than 2 weeks and we are still slightly short of our goal. Donations of any size are appreciated.

Breakthrough Manchester is the only 6-year college-access program in New Hampshire. Our students are bright kids who dream of going to college. With the thoughtful support of our donors, Breakthrough Manchester helps put them on their path.

If you have questions about contributions, please visit our FAQ page. To see a list of current donors who have contributed this fiscal year, please see our donor progress report.
