After receiving a MSW in policy and planning from the UConn School of Social Work, Lara Herscovitch worked in the United States, Latin America, and Asia on behalf of disadvantaged individuals, focusing on education, community development, and juvenile justice.

A gifted musician, her appreciation for the importance of cultural diversity and global issues is reflected in her award-winning music. She was named Connecticut State Troubadour for 2009-2010.

Herscovitch’s song, “Letters From A Ghost” will be premiered at this year’s Manchester MLK Day celebration sponsored by the Manchester Youth Service Bureau. The program will be held at 6 p.m. on Jan. 17, in the auditorium of Manchester High School.
