Faces of Ädelbrook

Solomon Leonard

Employee of the Quarter

Solomon Leonard has been with Ädelbrook since 2016. He recently moved from our residential programming to the East Hartford Learning Center where he is a social worker. His clinical skills have set him apart and he immediately made a powerful impact with the students. He is relatable, funny and engaged. However, it’s more than just that, he goes above and beyond for the students without hesitation. He shows them with deeds how much he cares by bringing in clothing, hygiene supplies and sneakers for the students who are in need. When he found out one of the students wasn’t going to be having a Thanksgiving meal, he delivered a hot meal to their home. Solomon is a true role model for students and staff alike, we are lucky to have him here at Ädelbrook.

Wandynel “Wandy”

Student, TLC—East Hartford

Wandynel “Wandy” (on the right) has made tremendous progress here at the East Hartford Learning Center (EHLC).  When she arrived to the EHLC she had several areas, both behaviorally and educationally, identified for improvement. It took time for staff to earn Wandy’s trust, but as she built meaningful relationships with staff, and she learned that they only wanted the best for her. It was only then that she became engaged and invested in her success within the school.

Her most recent achievements include High Honors and Most Improved Student of the Quarter. She has also found another passion, and that is helping her fellow students. When one of her peers is having a bad day, or is struggling emotionally, she has been a trusted peer who has been able to turn their day around. Wandy has become one of the many success stories that is truly inspiring for both the staff and students at the EHLC.

Jeff King

Volunteer Staff

Jeff King, Senior Hydrogeologist and Regional Manager at GeoInsight, Inc., has been a volunteer with Ädelbrook since he golfed in our 2015 Golf for Kids Tournament. Jeff’s son is on the spectrum and he saw the great work that was being done for individuals with autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders, and wanted to help. He has been an incredible member of both our Golf for Kids and Cheers for Ädelbrook fundraising committees. He is always eager to help, cheerful and full of great ideas. GeoInsight, Inc. has been supportive of him in this endeavor as well and they have helped with sponsorships and creating large poster board signs at their facility for our events. Jeff lives in Southington with his wife Deb and their son JJ. Make sure you say hi to Jeff when you see him at our next event.
