We agree with Sesame Street's recent Instagram post:
"Racism has no place on our Street – or on any street. Sesame Street was built on diversity, inclusion, and especially, kindness."
Those are the same values Jainchill & Beckert was built on. We stand together with our black community, and with our LGBT community, who we remember during Pride Month.
We also want to recognize our students as the 2019-20 academic year comes to a close. We're proud of our youth, who had to overcome the challenges of remote learning, social distancing and navigating new systems. Our thoughts are with the class of 2020, which is missing out on traditional ceremonies and having to find new ways of celebrating years of hard work. You are already experienced in agility – a skill that should serve you well throughout your careers.
Speaking of outstanding students, we're excited to announce that the Tunxis Foundation, on behalf of Tunxis Community College, awarded the Jainchill & Beckert Textbook Scholarship to Akiko Choi. Akiko is currently enrolled in Tunxis' Business Office Technology program of study, with a focus on Health Information Technology. Akiko, who lives in Unionville, earned a 3.85 GPA and plans to pursue a career in the medical field as a medical code specialist. Congratulations, Akiko!
We started seeing clients again in our office for face-to-face consultations. All meetings are conducted safely, with proper social distancing. We have masks, gloves and conference rooms large enough to keep six feet apart. As always, the initial consultation is free.
