Aug. 11, 2005 – Senator Celestino A. White, Sr. is pleased to announce that Trust Asset Management has agreed to partnership with his office to make needed repairs and purchase supplies and equipment to ready the Day Adult Education Complex in Garden Street for the start of the school year.

The generous support and assistance of Mr. Donald Sussman, Chairman of Trust Asset Management, will allow for the painting of the exterior of the building, classrooms and courtyard, establish a Library and Resource Center and a Teachers Lounge. "We have received the funds and the work is expected to begin this weekend," according to Senator White.

The Day Adult Education Program represents the last hope for many in our community to secure their high school diploma. It is heart warming to know that companies like Trust Asset Management are committed to assist our community to ensure all citizens are properly educated, stated Senator White.

"Public/Private Partnership is not new for me", stated Senator White, "as I joined hands before with both J. Epstein VI Foundation and Trust Asset Management to make fifty (50) brand new Dell desktop computers available to schools and youth groups," continued Senator White.

"I encourage other companies to assist with worth while initiatives designed to improve the quality of life of our residents", concluded Senator White.
