Success Story: Mike is Getting His Degree!

MikeMike Moschitto is in his last semester at CCSU and will likely be graduating with an impressive GPA in the 3s. It took Mike 9 years to get his Bachelor’s degree as his diagnosis and symptoms started right as he started college. Many Easterseals Supported Education professionals have worked with Mike over the years. Steve Mendoza is the current Supported Education counselor he has been working with at Easterseals (Stacey, Shannon were the first two). He is another example of the positive collaboration our Easterseals has with the Schizophrenia Relapse Prevention Program at the Institute of Living. Mike is interested in getting a job in the environmental sustainability sector after graduation—way to go Mike!
