Posted on June 28th, 2017

​​Vista Life Innovations, a nationally accredited post-secondary program that supports the personal success of individuals with disabilities, will celebrate the graduation of six students in a July 21 ceremony at The Kate in Old Saybrook.
Delivering this year’s commencement address will be writer, producer and teacher Jocelyn Ruggiero, who has worked with Vista students and members as an arts instructor since 2014. Among her various career highlights, Ruggiero’s written work has appeared in The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, Food and Wine, Parade Magazine, Saveur and Yankee Magazine.
Graduation is a significant milestone in the lives of Vista students that acknowledges the independence and success they worked hard to achieve while in Vista’s on-campus transitional program.
