In this week’s Faith Forum, Beth Berry will be speaking on her work with TORCH (Tackling Obstacles and Raising College Hopes). According to a recent article in the Northfield News, “in the seven years since TORCH has entered Northfield schools, the Northfield Latino graduation rate has risen from 36 percent in 2004 to more than 90 percent in 2011.” Overall, the mission of TORCH is to “improve the graduation and post-secondary participation of Northfield’s minority and low income students, especially those who are the first in their family to plan a post-secondary future.”
