Senator Duff Presents Donation From Vistra Energy to Norwalk High and Brien McMahon Post-Graduation Party Committees


NORWALK, CT – Today, Senator Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) presented a $5,000 donation from Vistra Energy to the Norwalk High School and Brien McMahon High School Post-Graduation Party (PGP) Committees.

The PGP Committee organizes the Post-Graduation Party for Norwalk High and Brien McMahon High School. It is an overnight event that takes place the evening of graduation and provides students with the opportunity to celebrate in a safe, drug, and alcohol-free environment.

“The PGP Committees provides a safe, fun event for students to celebrate their graduation from high school,” said Senator Bob Duff. “It’s powered by a dedicated and committed group of parents and volunteers who work hard every year to ensure students have a memorable experience. This generous grant from Vistra will go a long way toward ensuring Norwalk High and Brien McMahon students have a great time this year and I’m happy that I could connect Vistra with our schools in order to further serve the students.”

“On behalf of our graduating seniors of the Brien McMahon HS class of 2020, I would like to thank Vistra Energy for the generous contribution of $5,000 to support our annual post-graduation party,” said Qadir Abdus-Salaam, Assistant Principal of Brien McMahon High School. “Along with our BMHS Parents Group, this donation helps continue the tradition of providing a safe venue for our students to celebrate this milestone event in their lives.”

“This generous donation will help to provide the cost for 100 Norwalk High students,” said Maureen Ireland, co-chair of the Norwalk High PGP Committee. “This is such a memorable event for our students and I’m pleased that more students will have the chance to participate.”

“With our two natural gas plants and Ambit Energy, CTG & E and Public Power retail brands serving thousands of customers in the state, Vistra Energy is committed to powering Connecticut,” said Brad Watson, Senior Director of Community Affairs at Vistra. “We’re also dedicated to giving back to the communities we serve. That’s why we’re pleased to support the Norwalk Education Foundation and Connecticut PTA in their vital work enhancing student learning and providing safe and fun activities for graduates for the total education experience.”
