In an effort to have a variety of speakers help our students explore their futures beyond high school,
our Transition Coordinator facilitated a visit from former High Road School of Hartford student Demar Porter. Demar is currently an ISC Desktop Service Technician for Travelers Insurance of Hartford.

Demar began by speaking about his reasons for coming to High Road as a student and how it impacted his life. He spoke about how the structure at High Road prepared him for a positive post secondary education and also prepared him for a career. He spoke very lovely about a High Road social worker that was especially instrumental in helping him with his coping skills and ability to calm himself down in difficult situations. Demar expressed that he was very thankful for his time at High Road.

After a few jobs that held little interest for him, Demar, along with his brother Raheen started their own business repairing computers and other electronic devices. Moving himself forward he went back to school and landed his current job at Travelers.
