Cabrini Connections' students, volunteers, parents, alumni, donors, and all other supporters; it gives me great sadness to share the news of one our Cabrini Connections' members losing her life this past weekend. Veteran student in the program, Cierria Thomas, a 16 year old student at CICS Northtown Academy tragically passed as a result of a house fire over the weekend. Cierria Thomas has been in the program since September of 2006, along with her older brother Charles Thomas who graduated from the program last summer. Cierria Thomas was the mentee of veteran volunteer Tonya Myers.
Cabrini Connections' family please keep the Thomas family in your thoughts and prayers during this tough time they are facing. She will truly be missed. Tragedies like this are examples that life can be short, and should encourage all to live each day to the fullest because tomorrow is never promised today. As an organization we will continue to try to find ways to better the lives of all that enter the Cabrini Connections' organization, but today we will mourn the loss of one of own and send our prayers and condolences to the Thomas family.
