Rizzotti Honored With Polaris Award
University of Hartford women's basketball coach Jennifer Rizzotti will be honored with the Polaris Award at the Leadership Greater Hartford's Annual Polaris Event, Tuesday evening, October 1, from 5:30–9 p.m. at the Hartford Marriott Downtown.
Leadership Greater Hartford's Annual Polaris Event honors local leaders for their vision, skill, and courage in serving the Greater Hartford community and being a "Polaris"—the North Star that lights and guides the way for others to follow.
Ted Carroll, President of Leadership Greater Hartford, believes that "Coach Rizzotti is a tremendous role model for developing and leading a group of diverse youth." Carroll also indicated that the three Common Ground graduates to be honored "exemplify the hopes and values that inspired the program founders back in 1986."
