Dr. Craig J. Yennie

One year ago tomorrow Dr. Craig Yennie, the son of my good friend Hyacinth Yennie passed away suddenly in Providence, Rhode  Island.

This Saturday, November 11, 2017 at 10:00am there will be a memorial service to celebrate Craig's life, to be held at the Trinity College Chapel, 300 Summit Street, Hartford.  A tree will be planted along with  a plaque to honor Craig.

This year, the first Dr. Craig J. Yennie STEM Scholarship will be given to a Hartford Public School student who intends to pursue a college education in the STEM field.

The scholarship will be given this coming January at the annual Scribes Institute  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Gala.

Craig was an absolute peach of a young man who never forgot his home City of Hartford, where he lived and did so well in his many school-related endeavors. He was such a role model for so many young students -- the tree and scholarship are a great way to remember him, Hyacinth. Maybe a bench, too?

Craig was a wonderful person and someone I knew from working with HART when I was a police officer in the City and while employed at Trinity College while he was a student. A very good person and gone too soon.
