The CT HoC is designed to recognize and memorialize formerly incarcerated men and
women who have made substantial contributions to their communities since their release. Eight
individuals from across Connecticut are inducted into the “Great 8” cohort which began in 2020.

The unveiling ceremony was led by the CT HoC founder, Charles Grady. The second “Great 8”
Cohort includes: April Barron, Juan F. Castillo, Timothy Conaway, Dr. Antoinette Glenn, Warren
Hardy, Kevin Morse, Dana Smith, and Maggie Young.

Lieutenant Governor Susan Bysiewicz and US Attorney Leonard Boyle offered their congratulations
and commended the great work these individuals are doing every day. Maggie Young said, “There’s
a lot of feelings around this. This is a different type of award. I’m very honored to be here. The first
‘Great 8s’ are my motivation. We have a lot of work to do and I can’t wait to grab somebody’s hand
and pull them along.”

For over 25 years, Maggie has worked at Liberation Programs one of Fairfield County’s leading
behavioral health organizations specializing in treatment for all types of substance use disorders
including alcohol, opiates, depressants, and stimulants.
