What an exciting event! Over 400 guests gathered on the stage at NJPAC on Wednesday, November 15 to celebrate the school’s 48 year legacy of successfully serving the youth of Newark and to honor Cathy and Dave Ferry for their outstanding commitment and support of Link. The enthusiasm, and energy of the crowd was amazing!
